Boarding Your Pet at Tender Care Animal Hospital of Peoria

Need to get away, but can’t take your furry family member along? Bring them to us for a vacation of their own!

Let your pet kick back in our boarding facility and enjoy the staycation of their dreams. Our kennels are climate controlled – complete with air conditioning for balmy days, and heated floors for extra cozy winter nights.

During your dog’s stay, there will be lots of time for play! Between our five play yards and availability for walks around the facility property, your happy hound will get plenty of chances to stretch their legs. During this time, their “rooms” will be disinfected and sanitized, ensuring they always return to a fresh and clean kennel.

We know our fancy feline friends require a different kind of treatment, and for them we have an all-inclusive resort. With multi-tiered condominiums and cat trees galore, they’ll enjoy their holiday away from their barking counterparts in total cat paradise. With access to a fully windowed room where they can relax and enjoy the sun, there’s no doubt they’ll enjoy their home away from home.

Not interested in dragging food along? No problem! Included with their stay, we’ll provide a premium blend of wet and dry prescription diet specifically formulated for sensitive stomachs. It’s delicious and easy on your pet’s digestive system, so no need to worry about an upset tummy while you’re gone.

To protect against lost or damaged items, all bedding and bowls will be provided by our staff and facility.

To reserve your pet’s space today, schedule online!
