Pet Boarding you can count on in Colorado Springs
Centennial Animal Hospital offers boarding care for dogs, cats, birds, and exotics. We have large, climate-controlled kennels for dogs and a separate, quieter area for cats, birds, and exotics. When your dog stays with us, he/she can be taken out for play in a fenced, grassy, treed yard either with friends or alone. He/she can also go for a long walk around the neighborhood. Cats, on request, can also be let out to stretch their legs and do a bit of exploring before and after open hours in our cat playroom.
Bathing and grooming services can be taken care of during the boarding period. Arrangements must be made prior to boarding. Please let us know when you make the reservation for boarding if you are interested in bathing/grooming services.
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 a week in advance for us to see how your pet responds to the kennel and staff. We do not have indoor/outdoor kennels, so our staff must be able to handle your pet.
Nightly Boarding Prices Per Pet
Exotics: $25 (prices for exotics may vary, call for specific needs)
Medical Boarding: Additional fees apply to any additional service other than basic medications given up to twice a day. To make sure we can accommodate your pet’s special needs, please give us a call.
