Vaccination Requirements

Vaccination Requirements

We are very conscientious about our vaccination requirements, checking not only on recent vaccinations, but we also ascertain that the animal has a history of vaccinations. Dogs need to have a current rabies and bordatella, as well as distemper/parvo (DHPP).*  We now suggest, but do not yet require, an annual Leptostirosis vacination.  Puppies need to have had their complete series of at least 3 vaccinations through 4 months. Because of this, we do not accept puppies under 4 months of age, but suggest a neighbor, 4-H’er, or housesitter for that situation. Cats need to have been tested for feline leukemia and received that vaccination plus a booster. They also need distemper and upper respiratory annual boosters plus a current rabies.

*Recently adopted shelter dogs need to have had a series of 2 (DHPP) vaccinations before being accepted for boarding.


Since we believe in personal service and are often outside with the animals, it is quicker to reach us by phone. We return all messages the same business day.
