Cheltenham Animal Shelter’s dog and cat boarding facilities provide warm, cosy accommodation for your pet while you are away. Whether it is for the odd day or long summer holiday, we will care for your pet to the highest standard, giving you peace of mind while you enjoy your holiday. We also offer a day creche for dogs requiring care while you are at work.

Our kennels are spacious and individually heated. Comfy bedding is provided and your dog will have two walks a day in our secure paddock, on or off the lead at your request.

Each cat pod has its own individual heater, so your cat will have somewhere warm and cosy to snooze while staying with us. He/she will be provided with lots of toys to play with, and will be given tons of fuss and attention by our care assistants.

Our experienced staff can care for very timid and nervous pets.

We have a Veterinary Surgery on-site should your pet require emergency treatment and staff are on-site 24 hours per day, with regular checks on the dogs throughout the day and night. The care assistants can administer prescribed medication to your dog for a small surcharge.

We will feed a dry complete food for dogs, and complete dry or wet food for cats at your request. If your pet is fed a special diet then we ask that you provide enough food for his/her stay.

Testimonials

“We have used the shelter for boarding over the last 16 years. We could not recommend the accommodation and staff highly enough that is why have kept coming back year after year. When we arrive dogs cant get into the kennels quick enough, we are always greeted at the gate for boarding by staff and the dogs are so excited and made such a fuss of then they run to the usual kennel. The kennels are always lovely and clean, the dogs have adequate bedding, our dogs needs are always adhered to. We have never had any problems and would not take them anywhere else but to this boarding. The standard is very high and it had been the same for all the years we have come to the boarding kennels.” Gill – Bailey, Gracie and Flipflop the dog

I just wanted to say a big thank you from us and Maisie. It was the first time she has boarded with you after a recommendation from a  friend and we couldn’t be happier. Last year Maisie went to the same kennels as she always had but came back really distressed and  very scared of anyone moving their hand a bit quickly !!!!! We decided there and then that she would never be going back there. A friend  recommended Cheltenham Animal Shelter. When we picked her up she was so much more relaxed and settled straight back in at  home in her comfy leather chair. It was lovely to know that she had obviously be so well looked after. Thank you so much, we will definitely be back and will be recommending you to anyone who asks.” Mike & Chris – Maisie the dog
