Application Process

With proper information we can recommend the most suitable package for your pet to ensure they are happy, healthy, safe, and stress free. For your convenience there is an online application link below. If I have any additional questions after submission I will let you know. In some cases a test board may be recommended prior to a longer stay.

About the boarding facility:

The boarding area is within my private home located downtown Fort McMurray. The pets will be treated and cared for just as they would in your own home. I do my best to maintain your home schedule. They can have access to TV, music, their own beds if they have one, crates if you want to maintain crate training, whatever makes them feel at home and keeps them safe and happy.

Cats are boarded in separate rooms which all have windows for


natural light, places to climb, cats' own bed or crate, and radios or nature sounds to create a calming environment. If you have a dog and cat that get along, they can potentially be boarded together.

Space is limited for all services so book early!!

What’s required:

All the basics of multiple pet boarding and daycare are required such as:

  • proof of current vaccination/immunity, including bordatella for dogs.
  • periodic parasite control (internal and external).
  • spayed/neutered over 6 months of age. Call if you have you any questions about this as I may still have options for you.
  • approved on line application to start the process.

Owner Supplied Items:

We try to make your pet's stay with us as homey as possible so feel free to bring your pet's favorite bed, crate, pillow, toys or other objects that they are familiar with. These apply to both boarding and daycare services. It's a good idea to label all items with pet's name. As a minimum, your pet will need you to bring:

  • Food: enough food for all their meals plus two extra meals in case of delays, particularly for boarding.
  • Treats: bring a little extra so your pet feels extra special.
  • Chews: Especially if  your dog is an aggressive chewer, please bring appropriate chews/toys.
  • Special Walking Tools (for dogs): harness, head halters, jackets/booties. Flexi-leashes, prongs, chokers, or shock collars will not be used.

Facility Supplied Items:

  • Facility ID Martingale collars for boarders and standard leash.
  • Food and water bowls.
  • Blanket if appropriate and forgotten. Bringing your own is preferred.
  • Poo bags if needed on walks.
  • Size appropriate confinement areas. We have a range of sizes of kennels and crates.
  • Limited number of toys, kongs, and chews if forgotten.

Feeding Arrangements:

All pets will be fed as close to the owner’s home routine as possible. If there are multiple pets however, free feeding will not be possible unless you are ok to have them kenneled. All animals are separated at meal times. All dry food and treats should be in a re-sealable container or sturdy zip lock type bag, labeled with pet's name.

Raw food is not a problem and a fridge and freezer is available for food storage. 

Daily Walks for Dogs:

Up to two walks a day are provided based on dog's needs, health, and weather.

Deposits and Refund Policy:

A full one-night boarding fee for your specific package will be required to reserve your stay. This one-night fee will be non-refundable and non-transferable and reservations or inquiries are not guaranteed until deposit is received, processed, and acknowledged.

Additional terms shall be per signed boarding contract.
