Reading a story to a dogBoarding for dogs

Dogs at Rivermist are boarded in roomy indoor enclosures that open onto individual outdoor runs. Enclosures are available in various sizes to ensure that all dogs have the space and comfort their size requires. In addition, Rivermist recently added pet suites as another boarding option.


Happy grey catBoarding for Cats

Cats at Rivermist enjoy their own quiet quarters, separate from the dogs. They stay in private enclosures, each with a litter box and a soft bed to curl up in.
