Long-term Pet Boarding

We at Savannah Animal Hospital understand that there is "no place like home," but it would be our pleasure to provide your pet with a safe, comfortable, and fun place to stay while you are away from home. It is our goal to provide quality care and individualized attention while they are here.


Reservations are required. Our hotel capacity is limited. For those occasions when advance reservations are not possible, we will make every effort to meet your needs. The staff checks on the health and the well being of all our guests daily. Any problems with your pet are brought to the attention of the technical/doctor staff at the Hospital.
