our accommodations

Going away? Give your pet a vacation while you travel. Our menu of boarding services and add-on amenities let you create a boarding stay that’s just right for your pet.

Dogs enjoy a private suite complete with daily housekeeping, while cats stay in a separate environment from our dog boarders to ensure a good night’s sleep away from the scents and sounds of dogs.

New clients get their first night of boarding FREE!

commitment to safety

We require proof of vaccinations for all dog and cats. Any medical needs, medications, allergies, or food needs must be disclosed to our staff in advance so that we can provide the best care for your pet while you are away.

Dogs must be up-to-date on Rabies, DHPPv/DA2PPv (Distemper, Hepatitis, Parainfluenza, Parvovirus) and Bordetella. Dogs also require a negative fecal.

Cats must be current on Rabies and FVRCP (Feline Rhinotracheitis Virus, Calicivirus, Panleukopenia) vaccines.

Exceptional Care

When you choose Shady Grove Pet Resort that means peace of mind for you. While you’re away, we’ll email you photos of your pet having fun. And when you return, you’ll receive a report card on your pet’s stay.

Boarding Testimonial

"This place blew away my expectations. They email you updates on longer stays for your pet, and send you pictures of them like the one I attached. It is the best picture I have of my dog and it came from his time at Best Friends. The staff are very good the the animals and diligent to ensure all their guests are protected and have a good time. 5/5!"
