Dog & Cat Boarding

VACCINATIONS:Current vaccinations for RABIES , DISTEMPER (DHLPP, DA2PP OR DHLP) & BORDETELLA are mandatory. You can bring papers from your vet or ask your vet to fax them to us at 413-525-1364.  Due to an incubation period  of 5-10 days for most illnesses & because it takes up to 15 days for illnesses to show up, we recommend all vaccinations/veterinarian visits be completed at least 15 days prior to boarding our kennel.  All pets boarding must be at least 6 months old.  These rules are for your pets protection!
