Pet Boarding: A Home Away From Home

For pet parents who are headed out of town, we understand that it can be stressful to leave your pet – especially if they are ill, or when they are recovering from a procedure or surgery. At White House Animal Hospital, we want to help put your mind at ease. 

We provide complete general boarding services for all of our patients and medical boarding services for pets with conditions that standard boarding centers may not be equipped to accommodate. We are proud to offer a comfortable, clean, calm facility for your dog or cat, where we’ll keep a close eye on your pet and keep them safe and well-cared for until your return.

Some of the amenities that your pet will enjoy include:

  • 23 indoor temperature-controlled dog runs
  • A large outdoor exercise facility for dogs
  • Outdoor grass exercise area for hand-walking dogs
  • Cozy and comfortable enclosures for cats
We also offer daily hand walks and exercise/playtime for all pets. To really pamper your pooch, sign your dog up for our VIP package that includes 3 daily hand walks and a bath before they're reunited with you.

Medical Boarding for Cats & Dogs, White House Vet

A Typical Day For Your Pet

Boarding for Dogs

Every morning, the dogs go outside to our outdoor run for fresh air before breakfast. While they are outside, their kennels are cleaned, disinfected, and stocked with fresh linens.

Depending on their physical capacity and individual needs, we walk the dogs who stay with us on a regular schedule. 

Your dog will be supervised throughout their entire stay with us – both during walks and while they rest. In the evening, dinner is served, and then we have one last walk before bedtime.

Boarding for Cats

To ensure that your cat's home routine is not disrupted, they will be fed according to your specifications and their requirements.

We provide daily one-on-one interaction with kitties (if they want it!) including play, snuggles, and petting sessions. Litter boxes are checked, cleaned and disinfected periodically throughout the day.

Additionally, we refresh linens and clean your kitty's room daily. Our cat boarding area is separated from the dog area to ensure your kitty feels relaxed and safe while they stay with us.

Medical Boarding

Your pet will be supervised by our expert veterinarians and nurses, who will administer medications and watch over them closely. Any required medications will be administered to your pet on the same schedule they are used to at home.

  • What time should I drop off and pick up my pet?

    All pets must be dropped off or picked up during regular office hours. To ensure there is space for your pet, we recommend making a reservation, especially for holidays and summer weekends. During these times, we recommend that you call 2-3 weeks in advance to increase the chance that a spot will be available.

  • How should I prepare for my pet's stay?

    Each animal is different, so in order to prepare for your pet's stay with us, we'll take the following steps to ensure that we can meet their unique needs.

    Step 1: Contact us to get started

    Call us to book a reservation for your pet and to discuss details about their boarding needs. A member of our team will be happy to coordinate your booking.

    Please note that, due to the nature of our accommodations, we do not accept dogs that have not been spayed or neutered. Pets must also be up to date with all vaccinations and free of fleas and ticks to stay at our facility.

    Step 2: Book a trial stay

    We want to be absolutely sure that we are a good fit for your pet before an extended stay. The trial stay consists of a full day of daycare where we can take the time to assess your pet's temperament and make sure they fit in with the pack.

    Step 3: Set your pet up for success

    On the day you drop your pet off with us, there are a few steps you can take to help reduce any stress your pet may feel.

    Spending some extra time with your pet beforehand, as well as making sure they play and/or exercise vigorously within their physical comfort level can help them feel calmer. When you arrive at our facility, try to stay calm, cheerful, and confident during the drop-off.

  • What do you feed animals that don't have their own food?

    For pets that are not on a special diet, we can provide high-quality pet food that is appropriate for the size and breed of your pet. An additional fee may apply.
