Don't forget about the holidays! Download the required Lodging Contract here. You may fill it out and bring it to Paws & Claws prior to lodging. Note: We do not accommodate pets requiring shots such as insulin shots.

  • 4' x 5', 4' x 10' and 8' x 10' suite sizes (See rates.)
  • All geothermal in-floor indoor and outdoor heat
  • Includes exercise indoors and outdoors (when weather permits)
  • We try our best to keep as close to your pet's regular times as possible, typically 8:30 AM and 5:30 PM.
  • We offer a chicken based dry food available for $1.00/meal. We encourage you to "bring your own" food so that your pet will have a consistent diet. Food needs to be brought in original bag, ziploc bag(s) or containers only. No garbage bags or plastic grocery bags.

    As of March 1, 2019 all dry and frozen food must be pre packaged individually per meal in a ziplock type bag. All medications are also to be pre packaged (in baggies or a weekly medication container) and labeled as the time to be taken: A = AM N = Noon P = PM. Doing so will ensure your pet’s diet and medications are without question and enough for their entire stay. Please consider sending a few extra meals in the event you are delayed picking up your pet.

  • We do not offer wet diet. If your pet is on a special diet, please bring it with you.
  • Medications administered per schedule. (We must have a copy of your prescription for our file.)
  • Toys are allowed, if provided by the owner.
  • Bedding is B.Y. O. only. Washable is preferred. It must fit in a standard size washer/dryer. We no longer accept any beds that are larger than 24"x 36."

    Due to sanitary reasons we will no longer accept nest or over stuffed beds. Crate mats or small blankets are acceptable.

  • We provide bowls.
  • We offer healthy treats by a variety of vendors. If you pet is on a special treat, please bring them.

Special Needs

Is your pet elderly or especially sensitive? Talk to us about special accommodations for them. We can offer a calmer, quieter environment.

All Breed Grooming (by appointment only)

  • We provide eco-friendly products for grooming or you may supply your own, if you prefer.
  • We recommend setting up grooming and lodging as far in advance as possible.
  • We also recommend setting up a regular schedule for grooming in advance if your pet gets groomed often.
  • We will do anal gland expression, but only if the owner requests it and is OK with us doing it. The anal gland can rupture easily and that is not something that can be fixed, so it's best to have the veterinarian do that.
