Boarding for Cats
A Home Away From Home
Red Hills Veterinary Hospital offers unique cat boarding. We offer spacious indoor cat-only suites as our guests enjoy fresh air and bird watching outside for no extra fees.
We are quite different from the dormitory kennels, which hold 40 + cats in small cages or runs. With such a small number of spacious suites, each guest at Red Hills Veterinary Hospital is assured a comfortable and exciting stay.
Each guest has its own private two-story suite!
Cat Boarding Services at Red Hills Veterinary Hospital
You can board your cat for single nights or for extended periods of time.
Each pet receives hands-on attention and affection. The cats that stay with us receive daily socialization, exercise, and as much interaction as they are comfortable with.
We encourage our guests to bring their favorite bedding, blankets, toys, and food.
Double “town-homes” are available for families of 2, 3, or more cats to share and stay together.
Additionally, your kitty's room will be cleaned and disinfected daily and their litter box regularly checked.
Your pet will be supervised by our expert veterinarians and technicians who will administer medications and watch over them closely.
Any required medications will be administered to your pet on the same schedule they are used to at home.

- How should I prepare for my pet's stay?
Each animal is different. To prepare for your pet's stay with us, we'll take the following steps to ensure that we can meet their unique needs.
Step 1: Contact us to get started
Call us to book, and to discuss details about your pet and your boarding needs. A member of our team will be happy to coordinate your booking.
Please note that, due to the nature of our accommodations, we do not accept unaltered dogs. Pets must be up to date with all vaccinations and free of fleas and ticks to stay at our facility.
Step 2: Book a trial stay
We want to be absolutely sure that we are a good fit for your pet before an extended stay. The trial stay consists of a full day of daycare where we can take the time to assess your pet's temperament and make sure they fit in with the pack.
Step 3: Set your pet up for success
On the day you drop your pet off with us, there are a few steps you can take to help reduce any stress your pet may feel.
Spend some extra time with your pet beforehand, and make sure they get some vigorous exercise so that they are feeling calm. When you arrive at our facility, stay calm, cheerful and confident during the separation.
- What are the requirements for boarding?
All pets must have current vaccines, including rabies, distemper, and leukemia. Pets that are displaying symptoms of a contagious illness will not be accepted.
