Don't be upset if they don't want to go home!


We know being away from home can be traumatic, so we’ve gone to extraordinary lengths to make a stay at Southwest Animal Care Complex as comfortable as possible for both you and your pet.

We have been in the boarding business since 1989. We treat each guest as part of our family, and we hope to be your pet’s home away from home! With Dr. McKee’s 35 years of veterinary experience guiding the way, we have developed the cleanest and most comfortable facility possible, always keeping your pet’s ultimate comfort and pampering in mind!

Dog Runs

All dog runs include wall-mounted stainless steel water bowls, and feature individual indoor play and potty areas partitioned by a doggie door, simulating inside and outside. The runs are cleaned and sanitized twice daily with a hospital grade disinfectant using our state-of-the-art pressure washer and gutter flushing system that takes waste directly out of the facility. The smart design of the runs allows us to close the doggie door to clean and dry each side individually, so your dog never gets wet, and the boarding area stays clean, sanitized, and odor-free throughout your pet’s stay.


Every cat pen has at least one lounging shelf, and their litter box is cleaned twice daily as well.

Boarding Info

All runs are entirely indoors to ensure complete climate control. Our state-of-the-art heated flooring system cannot be penetrated by urine, other fluids, or waste, providing a shield of defense against odors, and the spread of germs or disease. Our state-of-the-art pressure washer system uses a hospital grade disinfectant to clean and sanitize all runs twice daily, and our gutter flushing system takes waste directly out of the facility. Our facility provides entirely clean air intake, with ventilation, cooling and filtration via separate zones for each area within the facility. Our separate dog and cat feeding rooms provide sanitary meal preparation in restaurant-grade surroundings. Our staff provides clean, fresh drinking water to all of our boarding guests continuously throughout each day and evening.

All resort guests are thoroughly screened for proof of current vaccination records and must provide a copy of vaccination documents from a veterinarian. We have a strict policy in place for every pet’s protection; proof of current vaccinations is always required.

Our staff is well trained and attentive to your pets and their surroundings, and we all share a genuine love for animals. Our goal is to treat your dog or cat as a member of our own family, and to give them the ultimate resort experience here at Southwest Animal Care Complex. We want to be your pet’s home away from home!
