About Kelly

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
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!

I would absolutely allow Kelly to watch Champ again! He clearly had a blast because he is exhausted! She kept me up to date with pictures and was quick to respond to any questions I had.
Kelly was fantastic. Sent pics everyday and kept us informed on our Stella. Stella was in good hands and was very happy. We will be using Kelly for all of our vacay needs! Thank you Kelly!
Services provided were amazing!! Thank you for all of the updates and photos! It's not easy leaving your furry family member for the first time but Kelly made our experience less traumatic and we were able to fully enjoy our weekend out-of-town. I will definitely consider her services in the future

Kelly was excellent! She was super quick to respond and sent so many fun pictures of our pups having a great time. I'm sure our dogs can't wait for another vacay with Kelly!
Kelly is GREAT! I booked Max's stay there while I spent the weekend in Dallas for my birthday and I can't say enough great things about Kelly. She was so helpful and was able to provide Max with a fun weekend! Her and Stella made Max feel at home and she sent some really cute photos of them having a great time. She went above and beyond making sure that Max was well taken care of and I didn't have to worry at all! I picked him up and he was freshly bathed and happy from a fun time at Kelly's! If you're looking for someone that will really treat your dog well, Kelly is the perfect fit! Thank you so much Kelly!

I am not a big fan of Kennels and found Kelly on the Dog Vacay website. Let me tell you; she is the best-kept secret for doggie boarding and care. A part of me wants to keep it a secret. LOL!

Kelly took EXCELLENT care of my furbaby while I was away on vacation. She did a great job of allowing him to keep most of his daily routine from home. I received constant updates and great pictures to documents his time with her and Stella, as well as awesome pictures of his playtime. Thank you, seems insufficient for the wonderful way in which she cared for my furbaby, she went above and beyond what I even expected.

Both my pet and I loved it so much that he is already booked to stay with her and Stella in a few weeks.

Kelly, you ROCK! Thank you for loving my furbrat!

Kelly made us feel so comfortable from the moment we made the reservation until we picked up our dog. She was caring, attentive and professional. I am so glad we found her!
I just relocated to South Carolina with my husband, but we needed to go out of town and leave my "meatball" Moe behind. When we found Kelly I was nervous because my poor fur baby has been having a hard time adjusting, but when I dropped him off I can honestly say I was put to easy seeing how Kelly interacted with him. She sent me daily updates of Moe and her dog. It looked like he had a lot of fun and he wasn't even missing me at all. She was awesome to give him his meds and really providing a very fun environment for him! When I picked him up he was excited to see me but I could tell he had fun... he pooped out as soon as we got in the car and sleep for most of the day! Will definitely be using her services again!! Thank you Kelly!

Kelly really did a great job taking care of my dog Lucky. I disagree with Jack Burns, Lucky is a German Shorthair and doesn't sell out the way cats do. You have to earn Lucky's affection. ( Meet the parents). Lucky did not want to leave Kelly and really seemed to love her and her dog. I would definitely use Kelly again in the future!

Kelly is absolutely amazing! She was nothing less than a god send. I needed someone to watch my dog for 5 weeks and she was able to accommodate! She was extremely flexible and easy to work with, a very sweet person, and my dog loved her and her home! I felt bad taking him back home as we was so happy at Kelly's ! I CAN'T THANK YOU ENOUGH, KELLY!

My husband and I are so happy with Kelly and the great care she took of our Sophie. She sent us multiple updates and pictures of our baby enjoying herself at her home with her dog, Stella. She followed our instructions perfectly and treated Sophie like she would her own dog. We can't wait to use Kelly again, and have already discussed needing her services again in November. Thanks so much, again, Kelly, and we will be in touch very soon!

Our pup, Zoey, had a great time with Kelly! Loved getting the daily updates/pictures. We will definetely book with Kelly again.
Kelly was amazing with my dog! She got to play outside a lot and was even given a bath! Sent me plenty of photos and was even flexible about me picking her up a little later! Definitely will be using her service again!
I arrived at Kelly's beautiful and clean home exhausted and frazzled after a long drive, she was gracious and welcoming. She sent me daily pictures and updates of Chloe's vacay. Many pictures of them on walks and playing in the backyard. It made me feel like Chloe was really well taken care of - it's apparent Kelly loves animals. She helped Chloe feel comfortable when she wasn't eating well by mixing in some wet food which worked like a charm. She even went the extra mile to give Chloe a bath at the end of her stay!
I picked up Chloe at the end of the week and she seemed at ease, well rested, and happy. Kelly gave us a little parting gift with some treats and a little "poop bag" holder to clip onto your leash.
Staying with Kelly is affordable and was wayyyy more personal and flexible than putting her in a kennel. If I'm back in Charleston with Chloe and in a place where Chloe can't stay with me - I will definitely call Kelly! Chloe had a ball!
