The boarding facility at Hope Animal Clinic is one of the largest in central Alabama. With 84 runs; 107 small, medium, and large cages; 18 private suites; and 28 cat condos in our climate-controlled facility, we offer a comfortable, safe place for your pet to stay while you are away. We feed only high quality Hill’s Science Diet dog and cat food and provide fresh food and water. If your pet prefers or requires its own food while staying with us, we gladly feed food brought from your home. Whether your pet is young and healthy or older with medical concerns, our dedicated staff is trained to provide the care your pet needs.
Most large dogs board in our runs where they rest on vented decks, keeping them off the floors. For smaller dogs, a clean folded towel lines their cage for greater comfort. Our suites also include a fold-down bed and a private television. Our canine guests are walked twice daily except for those boarding in our private suites; these dogs are walked three times a day. All dogs are released into smooth-stone pea gravel walk areas. We have found that releasing dogs as opposed to leash walking them encourages urination and thereby reduces the risk of urinary tract infections.
Our canine boarding rates include a 1/2 priced bath with 3 days boarding or a free bath with 5 days boarding. Canine boarders may also request doggy daycare play time for an extra fee during their stay.
Our feline guests enjoy a quiet stay in our cat only room. In this private boarding area, kitties can move through our connected cat condos to satisfy their curiosity or just to find a cozy place for a nap. Either way, they all enjoy the freedom of movement these expandable condos offer. For extra large cats, we have an open cage for their comfort.
Our kennel staff cares for boarding pets 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Drop-off and pick-up are available Monday – Friday from 7:00 a.m.- 6:00 p.m. and on Saturday from 7:00 a.m – 12:00 p.m, except on holidays. We offer discounts on multiple pets and do not charge an extra fee for administering medications. All other pet services such as grooming, spaying, neutering, and vaccinations can be taken care of while your pet stays with us. View our Facility page for some quick views of what we have to offer.
During peak boarding times, we require a $35 deposit that will go toward the boarding amount. This deposit is refundable if cancelled 48 hours prior to the boarding date.
