Pets are like our children – we feed, nurture and lavish attention on them. Riverside Drive Animal Care Center’s highly qualified kennel attendants do the same when you can’t be there. We offer a top-of-the-line boarding facility for cats and dogs, and are able to care for special boarding needs such as diabetics, geriatrics, and pets on special medications

We supply Royal Canin Low Fat diet at no charge or you may bring your own food. We also supply bedding and bowls as well. If you choose to bring personal items, we ask that you write your pet’s first and last name on items in permanent marker. WE WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR PERSONAL BELONGINGS. We will not replace or reimburse for any lost or damaged articles.
During drop off we will ask for an emergency number and any special instructions.
Vaccinations must be current (Rabies, Distemper, Parvo, Bordetella & Influenza for Dogs- Rabies & Distemper for Cats). If your pet’s vaccinations are not current, we can update them at our facility on the day they arrive. **Pets will NOT be accepted if they are not current or brought up to date during their stay.** If your pet is a new patient to us, an appointment with one of our doctors can be set up with one of our client service representatives.
There is an exam fee for Rabies, Distemper, Parvo & Heartworm tests. The Bordetella vaccine is intra-nasal and is a straight charge at our current Bordetella vaccine price.
We do highly recommend a Bordetella vaccination to be administered three days prior to boarding if your pet has never been vaccinated for Bordetella.
If you check in BEFORE 1 pm you will be billed for an extra half night per run.
If you check out AFTER 1 pm you will be billed for an extra half night per run.
Sunday Pick Up is between 6-7 pm; there will be an extra ½ night charge per pet for Sunday pickup.
