Pet Boarding & Daycare

If you are going out of town or have a long day at work, bring your pet to Alafia River Animal Hospital! We are proud to offer pet boarding under the supervision of our veterinary team. We cater to all of your pet’s needs while they’re in our care, including lots of exercise and play time in our indoor and outdoor play yards!

When your pet is ready for some downtime, they’ll have plenty of space to rest in our large, temperature-controlled runs. By choosing us, you can rest assured that if your pet has a health concern while you are away, they will be in the best hands possible.

Doggy Daycare

Doggy daycare is a great way for your dog to socialize and burn off excess energy. Additionally, if your dog suffers from separation anxiety, doggy daycare can help them build confidence over time.

Our first priority at doggy daycare is safety. All dogs are under constant staff supervision while playing. All dogs attending daycare are carefully screened to ensure they will make good playmates for your dog.

Pet Boarding

Our state of the art lodge features the best pet boarding accommodations around! We provide amenities such as clean bedding and food and water bowls, but feel free to bring your own if you’d prefer. Toys and other personal items that are washable are welcome.

All boarding pets will be exercised frequently.

Please call us with any questions you may have about your boarding. We are happy to answer any questions you might have and provide a quote for your pet.

Do we offer drop-off/pick-up on Sundays or holidays?

Do we need to bring our own food?

You can, but it is not required and there is no difference in price. If you bring your own food we ask that it is bagged up per meal or per day and not to bring a giant bag or plastic container.

We have plenty of bedding, blankets, and quilts to make sure your pet is comfortable during their stay.
