    When your pets can't stay at home, pick the next best thing: a stay at Bishop Ranch Veterinary Center. Whether you're boarding your pet for one day or for two weeks, we'll make their stay as comfortable and stress-free as possible.

    Dog Boarding
    With Small, Medium, Large, and Luxury Canine Boarding Suites available, our boarding facility offers separate heated and air-conditioned kennels. Our Luxury Boarding Suites are large enough that several dogs from one family can stay together in the same custom room and enjoy a window view of our grounds. All our canine boarders are exercised and allowed to run in the outdoor play yard a minimum of four times daily. All boarding suites include bowls, bedding, and dog-safe toys.

    Cat Boarding
    Our feline boarders enjoy a space kept separate from the dog kennel area, allowing for a stress-free environment and exercising. All boarding suites include bowls, bedding, litter box, and toys.

    Exotic Boarding
    We accept boarding reservations for exotic pets including bunnies, ferrets, hamsters, gerbils, reptiles, and birds. Owners must supply food and an enclosure/habitat.

    Tours are available from 9:00 am – 6:00 pm, 7 days a week during non-peak boarding dates. For more information, please contact us at:
