Laurel Acres Kennels' Policies

Laurel Acres Kennels will conduct business during normal hours.
All pet guests will be charged for the first day of boarding, regardless of arrival time. Dogs and cats adjust better to the kennel environment if they arrive early in the day (particularly for the first time visitor). If your pet is picked up before 12:00 PM (noon) on the day of departure, you will not be charged for that day.


Reserve early for holiday periods! Spaces fill up quickly. If your plans change and you have to cancel, please try to give us at least 72 hours notices so that someone else can be accommodated.

For your pet's safety and the safety of our other pet guests, all dogs must be kept on leash.

All vaccinations must be current before pets will be checked in. Please ask your veterinarian to fax this information to us at (503) 628-4251. For dogs, these shots are Rabies, DHLPP and Bordetella. For cats, these shots are Rabies, FVRCP and FELV. Guests will not be checked in without vaccinations.

Please leave your pet in the car until check-in is complete.
We will verify the dates your pet will be with us and make sure that all requested services such as walks, play yard, bathing, etc., are properly noted in your pet's record. You will also be asked to sign a contract for your pet's stay.

Bedding and toys from home may make your dog's stay more comfortable. Plain, easy-to-wash ones would be best. Your dog will be given his very own "locker" for his personal possessions while he is here and we make every effort to return them to you. Please understand that occasionally these items are lost or destroyed. Do not bring items that are especially important to you as we cannot be responsible for them. Please mark your pet's name on all items. We can provide blankets for your dog's stay if you are unable to.
