Avalon Pet Care is a small boarding and daycare facility for dogs and cats located just north of the Transfer Station & Recycling Center on the Westside Hwy. It was founded by Laurie, originally as a house & farm call service, back in 1992. In an effort to provide more intensive and personal care for animals, the main kennel building was constructed in 1994, with the house call service still continuing until 2000. Avalon is well known for providing exceptional care of the island's dogs and cats. Our knowledgeable staff uses their years of experience to make sure your animals stay safe and sound while having lots of fun!
We have 17 kennels of various sizes, all with heated flooring and air conditioning. Our three large outdoor yards have 8' high fences and two of the yards are partially covered to let the dogs escape from the frequent rain. Dogs are allowed to run freely and play ball or frisbee, during the summer they can splash around in several kiddie pools. With permission from the owner, dogs can play with others of similar size and personality.
You are more than welcome to come and tour our facility, but please schedule an appointment.
I am a longstanding Avalon devotee. Laurie and staff have showered love and care on my three dogs. Two of the three have gone on to doggie heaven, after long, leisurely lives, and I was worried recently about leaving my remaining baby after her brother died. Needn't have worried, of course. At the end of her stay she came home happy, and in better spirits than when I dropped her off, and she had regained some of the weight she lost while mourning her brother's passing. She goes back to "camp" at the end of the month to visit all her best buddies! Thanks for a consistent outstanding job, Avalon staff!

I have been taking my (now THREE!!) dogs to Avalon for five years. I have always been impressed with Laurie's thoughtful, caring and -- particularly -- knowledgeable care of my precious animals. I am confident that the staff knows my pets (both the good and the challenging parts!) and strives to meet their individual needs. I would recommend Avalon to anyone without hesitation.
