General Boarding Information
Animal Care Center of Plainfield is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for your pet who may need 24 hour attention while you’re away!
Boarding is available 7 days a week. While services are primarily for dogs and cats, we do board some exotics such as rabbits, guinea pigs, birds and turtles. We are proud of our boarding facility and welcome visitors. Dogs reside indoors in climate controlled kennels, but play outdoors in our spacious exercise areas during cleaning times (4x/day). Don’t forget we welcome exotics!
For our regular visitors, we now have Boarder Loyalty punch cards…fill up the card and get one regular night of boarding FREE!
For a more streamlined check in experience, please print off a copy of our boarding check in forms from our website, fill them out and bring them with you to your reservation check in.
What to Expect When Boarding Your Pet
When your dog is dropped off for boarding, he will receive a quick exam prior to being placed in our kennel. This helps us to maintain the healthiest, cleanest, and safest environment for our guests.
We feed our boarders a prescription gastrointestinal diet called Purina EN. Feeding time typically occurs once daily at 8am although twice-a-day feedings are available at no additional cost. While owner diets are accepted for an additional $2* daily dispensing fee, they are not preferred unless medically necessary. Owner-provided meals must be pre-measured and pre-bagged per meal to ensure proper feeding.
All blankets and food/water bowls are provided by our clinic.
Any required medications must be brought in their original containers and be accompanied by current prescription dosage. Medication administering is charged at a flat $2*/day.
We require specific vaccines and tests be up to date. If necessary, we can update at check-in. Mandatory vaccinations include:
• 1 or 3 year rabies
• 1 year distemper/lepto combo OR current 3 year distemper plus current 1 year lepto
• 6 month bordetella
• 1 year Canine Influenza vaccine
• negative stool check within the past 12 months
• 1 year rabies
• 1 year distemper
• negative feline leukemia test (for indoor-only cats)
• 1 year feline leukemia vaccine (for outdoor cats)
• negative stool test within the past 12 months
If your pet is seen by a different veterinarian, we will require documentation of vaccinations.
Housing for our boarders varies depending on species and size, including the following:
• Small dogs (20 pounds and under) board in our 27″x27″x27″ ward of cages.
• Larger dogs board in our 8’Dx8’Hx3’W suites of partitioned epoxy floor runs.
• All cats board in our treatment room.
Boarders remain in in their assigned accommodations, but have access to our spacious exercise areas. Cleanings occur three to four times daily for 10 to 15 minute stretches.
