Your Pet's Home Away From Home

Northshore Animal Care is pleased to offer boarding for dogs and cats at our animal clinic. Our clinic provides a comfortable and relaxing home away from home for your pet when you need to be away on business, vacation or an emergency. For your convenience, we also offer dog and cat day boarding as well as medical boarding. 

All pets must be current on vaccines:

Dogs must be current on distemper, rabies, bordetella, and influenza vaccines and had a negative fecal exam within the last 12 months.

Cats must be current on feline distemper and rabies vaccine and had a negative fecal exam within the last 12 months. 

*Pets with external parasites must be treated prior to boarding.

**Vaccines, fecal exam, and parasite prevention can be performed at the clinic at the time of your stay.

  • "My pup Goon is so afraid at the Vets office.... (he’s a pit bull) I wanted to try an in-home service! And this was perfect... Goon was more comfortable and less stressed in our home than I’ve ever seen him.... the Dr and assistant were professional and put us both at ease! I'll definitely be using this service again and I’ll definitely be recommending it to others... thank you guys so much!"
