Hill’s Science Diet Adult Dry feline and canine food is included with all hotel stays. If your pet has special dietary needs please provide these foods. If a special diet must be provided while boarding, a charge for these diets will be applied. Our guests are provided meals twice daily and have fresh water available all day. Please inform the staff of any special feeding needs your pet may have

Bedding and Belongings:

We supply bedding for all of our guests. If you would like to bring your pet’s personal bedding and/or other belongings for his/her stay, we would be happy to have them. Please label all pet belongings. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee the condition of the beddings/belongings upon return.

Illness / Injury:

Occasionally our guests will develop medical conditions due to the stress of a new place, eating different foods, playing, etc. Any guest showing signs of illness or injury will be examined by a doctor (if possible your pet’s regular doctor) and treatments will be rendered at the level of care selected by you at check-in. Charges will be applied unless insurance has been purchased. Every effort will be made to contact you concerning your pet’s condition.

Romp & Play:

Our canine guests are exercised 3 times daily and feline guests are let out of cages at least once a day. If your pet would enjoy additional playtime, socialization or attention such as brushing then he/she would benefit from our Romp & Play service. This optional service is available twice a day for at least 15 minutes each let out. Puppies less than 4 months of age are REQUIRED to have Romp & Play and the cost will be added to the hotel charges.

This must be agreed upon at admission. *This is only available for Savannah Animal Hospital patients. (Yearly exams, vaccines)

Spa bath:

Dogs staying in the hotel for 5 or more nights can receive a Spa bath with a nail trim and ear cleaning for $29.00.


Daycare is offered Monday – Friday. Reservations are required. Daycare provides a way for owners to begin socializing their pets with people and other people’s pets. Daycare for puppies can help develop or maintain a daily routine and to incorporate a mid-day feeding and assist with potty training. We can individualize your puppy’s routine to meet your needs. A Bordetella vaccine and at least a second set of booster vaccinations are required for puppies attending daycare. Daycare for adult pets adds socialization and activities to their day. Drop-off time is 7:15 am. There is an $18.00 early drop-off if you need to drop off prior to 7:15 am.

Daycare Insurance is available and covers incidental events which may occur during the day that require medical attention.

In daycare, we also utilize a “3-Strike Policy” to ensure the safety of your pet. If a pet inflicts a wound on another it is considered a strike. With three strikes, a pet will no longer be able to attend daycare.
