The Ark can accommodate a limited number of dogs for private boarding, with all the income going directly to help pay for the charity's essential rescue and rehoming work. When staying with us, your canine friend can be assured of the best of care from people who genuinely love animals.

Boarding is available all year round but, as we have only a limited number of pens, it is advisable to book as early as possible. You can normally deliver or collect your pet between 9 - 12 a.m. and 3.30 - 6.00 p.m. It may be possible to deliver or collect outside these times by prior arrangement.

All residents are fed twice daily, unless you request otherwise. We supply the food, but you are welcome to bring your own and this is essential if your dog is on a special diet. The kennels have central heating, with individual pens having heat lamps as well for those dogs that particularly feel the cold. The pens are large and each has an outside run. The dogs can also use the exercise paddocks and yards. They are all lead-walked twice each day. Our current charges for dog boarding are as follows: Per dog per day:

    • 1-6 DAYS:
    • 1 dog - £15 per day
    • 2 dogs - £21 per day (sharing a kennel)
    • 7 DAYS AND OVER:
    • 1 dog - £14 per day
    • 2 dogs - £20 per day (sharing a kennel)

The day of departure and the day of arrival are normally included in the total number of days booked. For more information or to make a boarding booking please ring 01335 300494 or email [email protected].
