The Many Benefits of Pet Boarding with Our Professional Veterinary Staff

There are many reasons why you may need to board your cat or dog. Perhaps you're traveling out of town. Many pet parents also choose to board their animals with us if they are hosting guests or doing renovations on their home.

No matter what your reason for choosing pet boarding, know that you're making a wise choice. In fact, there are several clear advantages of choosing to board your animal:

  • Boarding helps keep your pet safe and avoid dangerous situations that may occur if your animal were to be left unsupervised for too long (e.g., escaping the home, getting into toxic household chemicals)
  • Animals in boarding enjoy regular exercise, which is critical for both mental and physical health
  • Boarded animals will receive the right medications, foods, and supplements they need from trained professionals
  • Our pet guests have fun here! They can socialize with other animals and get lots of TLC

If you've been thinking about boarding your cat or dog, we encourage you to make a reservation here at Rush Animal Care. Our vet team will thoroughly answer all your questions and go over any special considerations. We always do our very best to accommodate your pet's needs!

All animals under our care will have access to fresh water, food, a comfortable place to rest, adequate space to exercise and play, and lots of human love and affection! Our facilities are clean and climate-controlled, and we board our dogs and cats in separate areas to ensure the comfort and safety of every animal.

Our pets are also medically supervised by our experienced veterinary staff, so you can rest assured that your pet is in the best possible hands.

Lastly, we understand how stressful it can be to leave your animal, even if only for a day. We always welcome calls from pet parents who want to check in on their beloved companions and get an update on how they are doing!
