Dog Boarding

Let Hickory Pet Inn be your best friend’s Home Away From Home when you need to be away from them. We know that your pets are family and we take the responsibility of caring for them seriously. You can rest assured they will be well taken care of by our staff of animal lovers. 

We have large indoor/outdoor runs that are kept warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Dogs get taken out for walks twice a day and can sign up for additional Play Sessions at Doggie Day Care for more exercise and socialization while they are staying here.

Hickory Veterinary Hospital is adjacent to the Inn and the doctors are in the hospital 24 hours a day 365 days a year  if our guests at the Pet Inn need any medical attention.

All guests of Hickory Pet Inn must be current on their vaccinations.

Please see Preparation for Boarding for more details on vaccinations and other information that will make your companion’s stay easier.

Cat Boarding

At Hickory Pet Inn, rest assured that we will do our best to make your cat’s boarding as relaxing and comfortable as if they were in their own home. Being away from home can be stressful for any pet. Eating and elimination habits can change in a new environment. We ask that you inform us of any special medical problems that your pet may have, this may result in medical boarding at the Hospital. Any information that may help us care for your cat will be appreciated.

Our luxurious Cat Condos are the ultimate in accommodations for your furry friend. You can be confident that when you leave your cat with us, your pampered feline will enjoy spending the day in a beautiful environment – stress free with large windows to captivate their attention and soft music playing during the day.

You can depend on Hickory Pet Inn to provide your cat with the best of care while he or she is staying with us. In addition to a regular schedule of feeding and condo maintenance, we also strive to spend some individual time petting and playing with a wide array of catnip filled toys, and blowing catnip filled bubbles.
