Central Pet Care offers a variety of comfortable accommodations, from private two room cat condos to spacious "playpens" for our larger guests. Our feline guests enjoy a special area all their own to enjoy some quiet cat time, while our canine guest can enjoy their own special recreation areas.


Central Pet Care provides your pet with the comfort of clean cloth bedding. However, if you wish you may bring your pet's favorite rug, blanket or bedding. Their own treats and/or toys may also help to make your pet feel more at home.


Meal time includes a fresh supply of iVet Healthy Gourmet pet food, appropriate for your pets age and weight. We would be happy to feed your pet's own food if they are on a special diet or prescription (additional charges will apply). You are welcome to supply your pet's own prescription or therapeutic diet. They may also be purchased at check-in or during your pet's stay.

Veterinary Services

Veterinary services are available for your pet during their stay. A Veterinarian is available during regular business hours and is on-call for after-hour emergencies.

TLC (Tender Loving Care)

The TLC program gives your pet the opportunity to have extra playtime, be walked, or brushed regularly. You may specify the activity, length and frequency for your pet. Each session is billed in 15minute increments.

Special Needs

Central Pet Care is well equipped to take care of your pet's special needs. Our nursing staff will make sure that they receive medications, treatments or other medical services while staying with us.


During holiday or high travel seasons, please make reservations six to eight weeks in advance.


Rates are assessed per animal according to the number of nights stay. Charges for TLC, administering medications or special diets will be billed as they are administered.
