Boarding Requirements


To ensure the health of all pets staying at Green Acres, we will need to see proof of vaccination for rabies for all cats and dogs, and either proof of vaccination or proof of immunity for distemper and canine cough for your dog and proof of vaccination or immunity for distemper for your cat. Proof of immunity would require a letter from your veterinarian stating that titer tests are performed on a routine basis and that your pet has sufficient immunity.  In an effort to make the check in process more efficient and to prevent any delays in your travel plans, a day or two prior to your pet’s arrival we will attempt to obtain this information from your veterinarian. Please note however, that not all veterinarians will release this information so be sure to have it available should it be needed.


All pets entering Green Acres are checked for fleas and must be flea free before they may be boarded. All pets are checked for fleas daily to ensure that no guest goes home with fleas. If your pet is found to have fleas at the time of check in, they will need to have a flea bath and Capstar® prior to being admitted to the kennel, for which there will be an extra charge.

Emergency Veterinary Care

If your pet should require veterinary care while staying with us, we will work with your veterinarian and the local Emergency Veterinary Clinic to provide the required care. Whenever possible, we will contact you or the person you designate at the emergency number you leave us, if such care should be required. Veterinary care is provided under the terms of Green Acres’ general contract.
