Indulge Your Pet With Luxury Boarding for Dogs, Cats & Exotics
We understand that it can be stressful to leave your pet when you go out of town – especially if they are ill, or when they are recovering from a procedure or surgery.
At St. Francis Pet Resort, we want to help put your mind at ease. Our dedicated staff offers nothing but the best for your dog, cat, or exotic pet while you’re away, and that is reflected in the accommodations we provide for pet boarding*.
*Please note: We are no longer accepting critical pets for boarding (seizure patients, diabetics, terminal illness, those requiring fluids, etc). 'Critical' is up to business discretion and we may refuse your pet if we feel we cannot properly provide the appropriate care. Our boarding team is not equipped to deal with these medical cases. Team members are on site from 5am to 10pm daily. A doctor and veterinary assistant/technician are on call during these hours. We do not have overnight care.
Be Our Guest
We welcome cats, dogs and exotic pets to our boarding facility.
For our canine guests, we offer roomy Deluxe Runs, Deluxe Suites, and Presidential Suites. No matter the accommodation you choose, every canine guest receives the same specialized care.
The suites are decorated in Americana, island, lodge, and character themes and boast the following features:
- Individual televisions showing pet-friendly movies

Dogs are let out in the play yards five times a day for elimination and exercise.

Your cat will be fed according to your specifications and their requirements, to ensure their routine is the same as it is at home. We provide daily one-on-one interaction with kitties (if they want it!) including play, snuggles, and pets. 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.

We set aside an area of St. Francis Pet Resort for exotic pets, including birds, iguanas, rabbits and hamsters.
Exotic pets are welcome in their own cages or aquariums, and will be located in an area away from drafts and too much activity.
