Pet Boarding you can count on in Colorado Springs

Centennial Animal Hospital offers boarding for our clients with dogs & cats, along with some exotics. Please note that exotic boarding is on a case-by-case basis. We have large, climate-controlled elevated dog runs and kennels for your dogs. A separate quieter room with cat condos and a playroom for them to stretch their legs. Standard services will now include multiple trips outside for potty breaks throughout the day and we are now providing turn-down services so their last trip outside to go potty will be more like home.

We still offer additional services that can be purchased such as a 20-minute walk around the neighborhood. For our social dogs they can participate in pack yard time with similar sizes and temperaments.

We do NOT board aggressive animals for the safety of our staff. If you are unsure how your pet will respond, you may set up an appointment in advance for us to see how your pet responds to the kennel and our staff. We do not have indoor/outdoor kennels, so our staff must be able to handle your pet while in the kennel.

Nightly Boarding Prices Per Pet

Canines: $40
Feline: $30
Exotic/Avian: $30 (prices for exotics may vary, call for specific needs)

Medical Boarding: To make sure we can accommodate your pet’s needs, please give us a call today, a doctor’s appointment may be required to verify that we can provide the care your pet requires during its boarding stay.

What To Bring

Items that you can bring to keep your pet comfortable during their stay with us include:

  • Food
  • Treats
  • Toys (please let us know if supervision is required)

Please do NOT bring your own bowls, bedding, or blankets. We have plenty in order to ensure the comfort of your pet during their stay.

It is preferred that you bring your pet’s regular diet in order to maintain your pet’s GI health. Switching diets, even temporarily, may cause diarrhea in some dogs. If you are absolutely unable to bring your pet’s food, we have the option of feeding your pet Purina EN Low Fat. We are able to accommodate any diets which require refrigeration.

Please label any items you bring with your pet’s first and last name.
