Shelby Center Hospital for Animals is pleased to offer superior boarding facilities for pets in Memphis and the surrounding areas. Our boarding areas are new and kept immaculately clean for the safety and comfort of the pets under our care. Feline boarders are kept in a separate area, away from the barking of our canine friends that may cause them unneeded stress. Our climate-controlled facility is kept cozy in the winter and cool during the hot Memphis summers.

What is required of my pet prior to boarding at Shelby Center Hospital for Animals?
For the safety of your pet, as well as that of others, all canines and felines must be current on their vaccination schedule prior to staying at our facility. All canine boarders must be up-to-date for canine distemper, adenovirus, parainfluenza, leptospirosis, and bordetella (kennel cough). Our feline friends must be protected against rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, and panleukopenia virus. If your furry companion is not current on their vaccine schedule, or if you are unsure of their status, please call Shelby Center Hospital for Animals at least four weeks prior to their anticipated stay to ensure they can be properly vaccinated.

Can I bring medicine, special food or toys from home?
At Shelby Center Hospital for Animals, we want each of our boarders to feel right at home! Our caring professional staff will provide any medications you bring, as well as diet food specific to your pet. Finally, feel free to bring along their favorite blanket or toy to help make their stay with us even more enjoyable.

Are reservations required for boarding at Shelby Center Hospital for Animals?
Our boarding facility is extremely popular and fills up quickly during holidays and traditional vacation times. For this reason, we require reservations to insure we have all boarders anticipated prior to their stay with us. If you are leaving home for work or vacation and cannot take your pet with you, please call (901) 372-2215 and schedule their spot at Shelby Center Hospital for Animals!
