Hello! my name is Kelly and I am excited to offer an exclusive, affordable & safer alternative for boarding your furbaby!
Your pet will feel like they're going to Aunt Kelly's house because they will be treated like family while they are in my care. My goal is to ensure your dog is safe, comfortable and engaged while in my care.
I specialize in small dog care and can accommodate furbabies up to 25 pounds. This ensures that your pet will be in a safe environment with similarly sized guests. I limit to 2 guests/day so that your dog will receive the attention they need & deserve.
My home is very clean, smoke free and located in a safe neighborhood in a golfing community. There are two friendly pets in my home: my calico cat Bella and my dachshund Stella. My home is two stories and a spacious 2012 sq. ft. I also have a very large back yard that is secured by a 6 foot privacy fence so your dog will have plenty of open space to run and chase squirrels and balls:) Your dog will experience the good life in Charleston as my home is located twenty minutes from Folly Beach, ten minutes from the West Ashley Greenway (an 8 mile hike/walk trail) and 5 minutes from Bees Landing Dog Park. My neighborhood is also pet friendly with plenty of sidewalks and walking trails for safe adventures. I love senior dogs & if your dog is elderly, special needs or a homebody I have plenty of cushioning comfort with my couch, dog beds or my super comfy Queen bed along with dog toys and treats.
I have worked with animals my entire life growing up with cows, chickens, dogs, cats, bunnies, a pet duck and squirrel. All of my pets have been rescues & I also actively donate to the nonprofit animal organization, Keeper of the Wild. My mom and I have experience rescuing feral kittens, domesticating them and finding them homes. We have also worked with Pet Helpers with their trap, neuter, & release program for adult feral cats. Therefore I also specialize in feline care. If you need a cat sitter, please contact me:) I am happy to drop in on your baby or have him/her come stay at my home.
Growing up I had three pet dogs from the time I was born until I moved out of my parent's home after college. Because of this I have experience with young dogs to senior dogs. I have also volunteered at the Doc Williams SPCA. I work mostly from home so your pet will not go unsupervised. So that you can keep up with your furbaby's vacay I will send you text & pictures updates of their adventures! I am happy to accommodate the needs of your dog so please just let me know what I can do to provide the best experience for your beloved furbaby:)
If you are vacationing in Charleston, most hotels don't allow dogs and kennels do not provide the family care and attention your dog deserves, so why not have your dog stay with Aunt Kelly? If you're flying out of town my home is located 15 minutes from the airport.
Your dog should be housebroken. If they are not and are prone to accidents please let me know so I can protect my things.
REQUIRED: Your dog must be non-aggressive, on a flea treatment and up to date on shots.
Please note in your reservation request your anticipated drop-off and pickup time. Drop off time is by appointment and begins at 8a.m.
Pickup hours are as follows:
8am-11am : normal pickup
11am-6pm : daycare rate $15
After 6pm : evening rate $20
Please note at this time I do not offer daycare services unless followed by an overnight stay.
Thank you and I look forward to meeting you and your furbaby!
