Sprawling over 1 1/2 acres of fenced-in land, South Paw Acres takes care of canine companions with climate-controlled, cage-free indoor play areas, comfy beds, a plethora of toys, and an on-call veterinarian. A dedicated dog-sitter monitors all playgroups, which are grouped according to tail-waggers’ size, temperaments, and Forbes 100 listings. South Paw Acres boards no more than 10 dogs at a time, ensuring that every pup receives a high level of interaction and affection. After romping around the pooch playground, outfitted with a refreshing pond and tree-shaded lounge areas, furry friends can listen to soothing music and watch animal-centric television shows while awaiting the return of their owners. All canines must be more than 4 months old and have updated vaccination records, be spayed or neutered, and have the ability to tie their own shoes.
The Central Missouri Humane Society exists to prevent and alleviate the suffering and uncontrolled reproduction of companion animals with an emphasis on public education, adoption and providing basic veterinary services for under-served pet owners.

During their stays at Nancy Crane’s Family Pet Care, dogs and cats alike play and lounge under the doting eyes of the animal-loving staff. In the dog kennel, pups sprawl out on heated floors when it's chilly or let their floppy ears waggle in the breeze from central air conditioning on hot days. Outside their doggy doors, hounds can take in the fresh air on daily indoor and outdoor runs.
In the separate cat area far away from disdainful pooches, kitties in most units peer out their windows in search of songbirds, squirrels, neighborhood children, and other natural prey.
The facility's staff is on hand 24 hours a day, to ensure that help is always nearby in case your pup has that recurring dream about eating a gigantic bone. For dogs, the caregivers also dole out some optional pet-pampering services, including outdoor playtime, grooming, and treats of peanut-butter-filled bones and ice-cream cones.
Silver Maple Farm's two-acre estate teems with furry friends on loan from owners. In two-hour play sessions at doggie daycare, pooches stretch their legs, breathe fresh air, and make new friends by checking other dogs' tail areas for trading cards ($28.50/day, $21.50/half-day). The facility is open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. each weekday so that Fidos can socialize while their human servants are off earning money and buying kibble.
