Book your pet in to their home away from home

Planning a holiday and need a safe place for your pet to stay while you’re away? We can help. Across South Australia, we offer multiple dog and cat boarding facilities, giving you peace of mind that your beloved pets will be well cared-for while you enjoy a vacation.

What’s more, all proceeds generated by our boarding facilities goes straight back to helping animals in need across our state.

There’s no need to worry about pets who are fussy eaters, either. We understand the individual needs of each animal and can cater for a wide range of diets.

If your pet requires medication, our Lonsdale shelter is the place for you, as we have qualified staff and veterinarians on-site six days a week. (But please do discuss your pet’s individual medical requirements when making a booking.)

Dog boarding

RSPCA dog boarding

Dogs boarding at our locations have dedicated kennels exclusively for their stay with us.

We ensure your dog is kept entertained with daily exercise in large yards overseen by trained dog behaviour staff and volunteers, who can also tailor care to suit your pooch’s individual needs.

Cat boarding

RSPCA cat boarding

Cats boarding at our locations are individually housed in a spacious pen with comfortable bedding provided.

In many facilities, residents get to spend time outside of their pen in an enclosed area where they can climb and explore.
