Dogs at Rivermist are boarded in roomy indoor enclosures that open into individual outdoor runs. Enclosures are available in various sizes to ensure that all dogs have the space and comfort their size requires. Dogs with activity packages enjoy our roomy suits, located just next to our play yard.

Cattail Lodge at Rivermist allows cats to 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. Our kitty suites even include little TV screens showing your cat engaging movies during their stay.
