When people go away on vacation or business trips, their pets shouldn’t stay home alone. Fortunately, there are facilities that can provide full boarding and other services for pets that are left for an extended period of time. Dogs and cats can be left in secure, clean and friendly settings that are maintained by experienced staff members. Pet inns are essentially mini hotels for cats and dogs. The daily rates for pet boarding are usually less than $100 per night. Discounts may be available for pets that are left for at least a week.
