We also sell high quality dry and wet food in our retail store that you can purchase when you drop off.

We recommend you pack a little extra just in case your plans change and your dog stays longer than expected.

If your designated veterinarian is not open or able to accommodate the dog, we will bring your dog to one of our vet partners in Peachtree City or a 24 hour emergency vet clinic.
