Pet Nation Lodge helps furry friends trade the rush of daily life for the leisure of luxury lodges, chef-selected meals, and social play areas. Following a two-hour consultation for every new client, rambunctious hounds climb and slide on an indoor faux-grass field, and felines use a separate, soundproof room to catch naps or test out impersonations of their owners. Overnight guests snuggle on raised beds and quilts as webcam surveillance oversees canine naps. After staffers burn doggie calories on five daily walks, chef selections refuel man's best friend with cuts of beef, chicken, liver, and salmon. Skilled groomers also free filthy hounds with a HydroSurge bath, dislodging dirt picked up on backyard romps and Forever stamps collected while chasing the mailman.
Puppywood Pet Resort supervises dogs while owners are away, provides training programs, and pampers dogs with grooming and bathing services. Daycare allows canines to socialize indoors and outside, frolicking in the grass, climbing on play equipment, or lounging in the pool. Boarding pups stay in open kennels, receiving food and medications as dictated by their owners.
In Animal Care Centers’ climate-controlled boarding facilities, dogs lounge in the lap of luxury—their VIP dog suites are outfitted with TVs and overlook a koi pond complete with a waterfall. However, perhaps the most important amenity is a team of veterinarians, on call around the clock. And the vets are some of the best in town; the practice has been named "Best Vet in Cincinnati" for four consecutive years by City Beat Magazine. For the past 30 years, the vets have administered vaccinations, screened for heartworm and leukemia, and performed pet dentistry, rather than just teaching pets to chew with wind-up chattering teeth.
Dogs can run their fastest during Buddy Boarding's jogging sessions, untethered by a lagging human or a tightening leash. That's because the company's specialists ride roller skates or longboards alongside sprinting canines to match their speed and endurance. They work with dogs of all energy levels, tailoring the sessions to include vigorous exercise or playtime.
If a dog isn't tired, it isn't happy. That's why WagsPark fenced in their three acres of land. Now, during play sessions, canines jump, run, and roll to a state of blissful exhaustion without worrying about wandering off. After trotting through manicured lawns and agility courses, dogs jump into a cool, spring-fed lake with tidy gravel banks. A dancing fountain also sprinkles coats with refreshing droplets. While dogs play, owners can sidle up to the bar area where a big-screen TV displays the antics of well-trained humans.
During daycare hours, dogs roam freely between the temperature-controlled building and the outdoor play areas. Certified staffers always stay nearby to make sure they stay happy and safe. When it's time to go home, owners can give their furry friends the spa treatment or wash them up in a self-service dog bath. WagsPark also features a training academy where pups learn to obey commands and play well with others.
Ohio Alleycat Resource & Spay/Neuter Clinic (OAR) works to enrich the lives of cats and communities in Greater Cincinnati through low-cost spay or neuter surgeries as well as a no-kill adoption center dedicated to finding loving, permanent homes for cats and kittens. Along with its standard spay or neuter services, OAR helps to protect feral cats and keep the cat population in check through its trap-neuter-return program, in which cats are humanely trapped and spayed or neutered before being returned to their outdoor lives.
