Medical Boarding for Cats & Dogs, Thornton Vet

A Typical Pet Boarding Day 

Dog Boarding

Dogs still need lots of exercise, enrichment, and care while on vacation. To provide the best care, guests are either in our Group Daycare Program or, for those who don't do well in groups, our Individual Daycare Program.

Every one of our canine guests are walked at least 4 times throughout each day. They will be in either our group daycare program or our individual day boarding program from 7:00am-7:00pm where they receive at least four walks (before breakfast, before lunch, after lunch, and before dinner).

Cat Boarding

Your cat will be fed according to your specifications and their requirements to ensure their routine is the same as it is at home.

We provide daily one-on-one interaction with kitties (if they want it!) including play, snuggles, and pets. Litter boxes are checked, cleaned and disinfected periodically throughout the day.

Additionally, we refresh linens and clean your kitty's room daily. Our cat boarding area is located upstairs in the cat room separated from the dog area to ensure your kitty feels relaxed and safe while they stay with us.

Medical Boarding

Please call to discuss your pet’s needs for this service.

Your pet will be supervised by our expert veterinarians and nurses in the course of their stay with us. We are fully equipped to ensure our guest’s medical requirements are met.

We will try to administer your pet's medications on the same schedule they are used to at home to ensure a comfortable stay.

Oral medications will be administered at no charge. Injections or ear-administered medications will be given by one of our veterinarians or technicians for a nominal fee.

Your Pet is Our Special Guest

Our team of veterinary professionals at Caring Hands Veterinary Hospital & Hospitality Center are serious animal lovers! We thoroughly enjoy giving our boarders and daycare participants all the attention and care they deserve while they're staying with us in our bright and modern boarding facility.

  • How do I enroll my pet in daycare?

    Here's what you need to know if you'd like your pet to take part in our daycare program:

    Introduction Day:
    A manager or supervisor introduces each dog on his or her first day. We do this on leash with our other attendants to monitor the dog's temperament, behavior, body language, and interactions with people and other dogs. We carefully ensure everyone's safety while allowing the dog to make his or her own decisions throughout the day.

    If everything goes well, we contact the owners after midday to let them know their dog is perfect for daycare or day boarding. We do all this to keep the resort safe and fun for everyone!

    Canine Vaccinations:
    All pets must be up to date on the following vaccinations:

    • Rabies
    • Distemper/Parvo 
    • Leptospirosis
    • Bordetella (Kennel Cough)
    • Canine Influenza

    **Please have vaccination history emailed to or faxed to 303-452-7387 before check-in.**

    Guests must be at least four months old and current on vaccines.

    Reproductive Status
    Female dogs over 6 months of age must be spayed. Intact male dogs will be accepted on a case-by-case basis

    Dress Code
    For the safety of our guests, all leashes, collars, harnesses and clothes might be removed during playtime.

  • What time should I drop off and pick up my pet?

  • What should I pack for my pet?

    Food: We encourage clients to pack their own food, so that your dog does not upset their stomach from having to switch their diet. If you do not have food, or your pup does well on most diets, we do offer Hill’s Science Diet brand food as our “House Food.” If you do pack your own food, it may be easier to individually pre-pack it, but we will also accept containers of food and even bags in most cases.

    Medication: If your pet takes medication, please bring it along for our staff to
    administer. All medication must be in its original bottle or packaging, and not portioned out.

    Toys & Bedding: We always provide every comfort to the pets in our care,
    including fun toys and comfortable bedding. Of course, we accept toys and bedding from home as well, as it certainly can bring comfort to dogs and cats to have a slice of home with them during their stay. We do ask that everyone try to limit toys to 3 items, and bedding to 2 items, but we understand it can be very hard to choose!

  • May I get updates about my pet during their stay?

    Yes, feel free to call us during your pet's stay for updates. If there is a problem, we will contact you via the emergency contact information you provide.

    Talk To Us To Learn More

  • How should I prepare for my pet's stay?

    Each animal is different. To prepare for your pet's stay with us, we'll take the following steps to ensure that we can meet their unique needs.

    Step 1: Contact us to get started

    Call us to book, and to discuss details about your pet and your boarding needs. A member of our team will be happy to to coordinate your booking.

    Please note that, due to the nature of our accommodations, we do not accept unaltered female dogs. Pets must be up to date with all vaccinations and free of fleas and ticks to stay at our facility.

    Step 2: Book a trial stay

    We want to be absolutely sure that we are a good fit for your pet before an extended stay. The trial stay consists of a full day of daycare where we can take the time to assess your pet's temperament and make sure they fit in with the pack.

    Step 3: Set your pet up for success

    On the day you drop your pet off with us, there are a few steps you can take to help reduce any stress your pet may feel.

    Spend some extra time with your pet beforehand, and make sure they get some vigorous exercise so that they are feeling calm. When you arrive at our facility, stay calm, cheerful and confident during the separation.

  • What do you feed animals that don't have their own food?

    You are welcome to bring your pet's own food, otherwise, we offer our dogs and cats staying with us Science Diet for breakfast and dinner.

    A healthy, low-allergen treat, served with an entertaining toy, for an afternoon snack is also available upon request for a low additional fee.
