FUREVER FRIENDS PLAY & STAY
We started our business in 2014 on Sand Island. Based on my own experience boarding my dogs, I knew we could do better. I wanted our dogs and cats to feel like they were at home when they came in.
At Furever Friends we have open spaces with couches, cots, and beds for dogs. For kitties we have cat towers, scratch posts, and nooks for naps. We also have a kitty sunbathing room and catnip happy hour. Our spaces always have a human that regulate play and love.
We have rooms in-between rooms for slow introductions and friendship building. Our dogs are grouped by size and temperament. This allows animals to socialize and prepare for real word experiences.
A few things to remember for your dogs and cat's safety and well being.....
Assessment Process: Each dog goes through a temperament assessment prior to utilizing any of our services. The assessment lasts for a minimum of 4 hours and is done by appointment only (Monday through Saturday starting at 8:30am). Assessments are $10. At the scheduled time, a current vaccination record is required proving that Distemper, Hepatitis, Parainfluenza and Parvo Virus (DHPP) and Bordetella are up-to-date. During the assessment, your dog will meet our pack and have time to acclimate with the new environment and staff.
All forms and disclaimers must be signed by the owner(s) of the dog and cats at the time of the assessment.
Vaccinations: The Bordetella and DHPP vaccinations and Fecal testing are required for all dogs. Distemper, Rhinotracheitis, Pneumonitis, and Leukimia vaccinations are required for all Cats. Owners are responsible for providing updated vaccination records to Furever Friends Play and stay via hard copy or email to Info@Fureverfriendshi.com.
Collars/ID: Dogs are required to come in on a leash and wear a collar with an ID tag. Owners are encouraged to have their dogs microchipped.
Fleas & Ticks: All dogs are required to be on a monthly flea and tick preventative (excluding flea/tick collars). Dogs who are found to have fleas/ticks will be given a flea/tick bath with charges applied to the owner.
Food/Medication: Furever Friends Play and stay will only feed what is provided by owners and is happy to administer necessary medications to dogs in need for a small fee of $5 a day. All food and medication should be labeled with the dog's first and last name and packaged in an airtight container or ziploc bag. Medications should be in their original containers for identification purposes.
Day Care: After the assessment is complete, dogs are welcome to attend day care during normal hours of operation. All dogs are required to be checked in for day care and boarding by 1:00pm.
Boarding: It is our goal to provide a comfortable and safe environment for your pet. To ensure that your pet acclimates to their new environment, there is a mandatory 2-full day (daycare) minimum stay prior to their boarding check in date. Regular customers who attend day care on a weekly basis are welcome to schedule boarding reservations at any time.
