Our hosts do not have cages. If your pet normally uses a kennel, send it along. Your pet is transported in kennels for their safety. If your pet is destructive, chews a lot or is incontinent, we strongly recommend that a kennel is sent. Sometimes a baby gate may be used to block off the staircase or other room.
What Comes After the Interview of My Pet?
There are a few steps that you should take to prepare your pet for their first stay with Pets Are Inn. No worries, it’s nothing too difficult and some of it might be fun!
Step One: Tell your pet! They are going to be going to a new place with a new person! It’s only polite to let them know in a gentle and calm voice that they are going to be going on a special vacation soon. Maybe throw in a belly rub to make them feel special!
Step Two: Check their health and vaccination readiness. Are there any recent health changes that we should know about before boarding? Are they up to date on their rabies and distemper vaccinations? Pets Are Inn also accepts titer test results and vaccination allergies if confirmed by a veterinarian.
Step Three: Write may write a letter to their host family. Even though we give them a data sheet from your interview, many hosts like to have a letter to refer to for specific instructions from the owner! It is helpful to go over your pet’s normal routine and habits so the host family can be prepared. Are there any specific details that you glossed over during your in person interview with Pets Are Inn? Those are the perfect things to include so your host family can keep the same routine with your pet that you do at home! The more detail you can give, the better it is for everyone, especially your dog or cat or other furry family member. You can either email this to our office in advance or have it ready for our driver at pick-up. Make sure your personal contact information is not included!
Step Four: Packing! Go over your pet’s normal routine again in your head again. Do you have anything he or she might need for this stay? Double and triple check that you are more than enough food. Sometimes trips need to be extended and we don’t want to run out of their food. If your pet might get anxious, it is sometimes useful to also pack along an unwashed clothing item or blanket that still holds your scent. Your pet can now smell this item (and you) and feel a bit more “at home”! If your pet sleeps in or uses a kennel, please send it along if it is small or collapsible.
Step Five: How will we get in touch with you in case of an emergency? Make sure to have your travel information and emergency contact information ready to give to the driver when we come to pick your pet up! Emergencies are extremely rare, but we always need a way to contact you just in case.
Step Six: We want you to have a stress free travel experience at least where your furry buddy is concerned.

Great job as always! We never worry about our pet when she is with Pets Are Inn. Renee P
Did a weekend test-run to see how my pups would adjust to their first time away from home. They had such a great time with their critter-sitter, they’ll soon be going back for a week-long stay. It is wonderful to leave the details to Al & Donna, who do an...
