Why We’re Different

25 Years of Pet Care

Family-owned and operated since the beginning, we offer the most experienced and educated management in the area. 

Veterinarian Recommended

Not only do local veterinarians recommend TLC Pet Lodge to their clients, many use our facility for their own pets!

Appropriate Accommodations - No Crates or Cages

All pets are lodged in enclosures appropriately sized for your pet(s) needs inside the building. Pet accommodations are reserved according to breed and exercise needs.

Customized Lodging Vacations

Each pet is different, so why should they have the same vacation? Our lodging vacations can be customized to your pet.

Fresh Air

Our indoor accommodations are air–conditioned, humidity controlled, and have a specialized ventilation system that circulates fresh air every ten minutes.

Caring for Special Needs Pets

We have been caring for special needs pets including seniors and pets that need a little extra TLC since the beginning.

Award-Winning Grooming

Our Best Groomed Dog Award Winner oversees our professionally trained staff who are happy to take care of your pet’s grooming needs.
