For the past 6 years, Aardvark Animal Hospital has provided veterinarian supervised doggy daycare and boarding.  It is with great sadness that we are announcing that we are discontinuing our daycare and boarding services effective immediately. 

Our last daycare session will be held on Friday, February 11, 2022. All remaining pre-paid daycare package dates will be refunded. 

Boarding reservations currently scheduled in 2022 will be honored and care will be supplied by our hospital staff.  They will receive the same “home away from home” care that you have come to expect at Aardvark during their stay.

We understand that this news may come as a surprise and disappointment to our clients. In this COVID climate we, along with so many other employers, have found a lack of qualified staffing a concern.  As a hospital facility, we require a certain number of certified dog behaviorists on our staff and experienced kennel attendants.  Prospective employees with these credentials have been very hard to find and continuing to pull staff members from other areas of our hospital is not sustainable. As your family member is our priority, we will not lower our standard of care and safety, and we have found no other option at this time but to discontinue services.

In closing, we are thankful for your trust in us with the care of your dear pets.  We have loved every moment, watching your dog play happily with each other and with us, or giving your pet the extra love and attention it deserves. Your family members have become our family members, and their safety is our primary focus which has made this decision very difficult, yet necessary.
