Are you thinking about heading to Orlando but can’t leave your pets at home? The great news is that you can bring those furry friends with you! Located on Walt Disney World property, Best Friends Pet Care Center lets the furry part of your family vacation too! The 27,000-square-foot facility offers boarding, daycare and grooming for dogs, cats and other family pets (don’t leave your hamster behind!) in a safe, healthy and fun environment. The facility will even send photos of your pet by text during their stay! The facility is very clean and the staff goes above and beyond. Most mornings can be very busy with new arrivals, so be sure to leave yourself plenty of registration time.
Your pet’s special needs will be monitored closely throughout the day. Best Friends Pet Care requires proof of vaccinations for all dogs and cats, and dogs must also have a negative fecal. Dogs must be current on Rabies, DHPPv/DA2PPv (distemper, hepatitis, parainfluenza, parvovirus) and Bordetella. Cats must be current on Rabies and FVRCP (Feline Rhinotracheitis Virus, Calicivirus, Panleukopenia). Any medical needs or medications must be disclosed to the staff in advance. Although they welcome all breeds for Individual Play & Stay, certain breeds may not participate in Play & Stay Groups nor will any known aggressive dogs.
