Daycare & Boarding

Pawmetto Lifeline offers Doggy Daycare and Boarding services! We are dedicated to animals in the community and boast a state-of-the-art facility built with pets in mind. We understand pets' needs inside and out, which is why we plan activities to stimulate your companion's brain as well as their muscles! Our animal specialists are trained to take care of animals of all ages with top quality standards. As a smaller boarding facility, we give close attention to your pets' needs and preferences.

Let your pet come stay and play with us! Your pet will have a blast and 100% of the proceeds will benefit homeless pets in the Midlands.

Daycare/Boarding Practices: We know when you trust your dog to us, you are trusting us with a member of your family and we take their health and well-being very seriously. When you choose Pawmetto Lifeline for your Daycare and/or Boarding needs, you can be assured that your pet will receive the highest quality care.

  • Every dog has its own 5 x 7 suite for nap time (unless you bring in a companion to board with him/her)
  • Only staff interacts with the privately owned pets
  • All pets boarded in the DayCare/Boarding Suite are fully vaccinated and up to date on all medical
  • The Daycare/Boarding Suite has its own separate HVAC system from the rest of the building
  • No Pawmetto Lifeline dog is boarded in the Daycare/Boarding Suite unless they are a long-timer. (Long-timers have been at Pawmetto Lifeline for at least two months, are fully vaccinated and considered a healthy adoptable dog by our veterinarian.  These dogs do NOT interact with other Pawmetto Lifeline animals.)
