At Paws Club, pooches carouse in the outdoor play area before retiring to the sofas and beds of the social lounge indoors. In that air-conditioned space, they relax while listening to soft music. If feeling more active, they romp around the large supervised backyard or prance through sprinklers. All the while pups remain under the watchful eye of bonded and insured staff and pet sitters who love to play and interact with their furry guests. Canines staying overnight are housed in cageless boarding and pampered with late-night treats. A toll-free phone line is available, as well, so owners can check in on their pets while away.
Crate Escape owes its existence to a 10-year-old jack russell terrier named Ernestine Hastings. Ernestine's owners, Bradley and Stephanie, loved their pooch so much that they decided to spread this affection to other dogs by opening a spacious boarding and grooming facility. Pet owners can drop off their furry friends for daycare or overnight boarding services, letting pups gambol about in a 17,000-square-foot play space. Groomers tackle matted fur and tails caked in cake by scrubbing coats with hypoallergenic shampoo.
Durty Harry’s is home base for canine-human bonding sessions based on an interspecies passion for four-legged hygiene and flower-scented soap. The grooming specialists and fur refurbishers tend to mutts of all stripes, but today’s Groupon gives you the tools to do the work on your own. Bring your pooch into the store, and you’ll get shampoo and conditioner to restore the breezy shine of a puppy’s fur coat or the paisley patterns common among modest breeds wearing pants. After you've treated your tailed companion to a soothing bath in a pup-size tub, the friendly staff at Durty Harry’s will hook you up with brushes, a blow dryer, and a towel so that you can give your dog the fluffy finish she’s been begging for with her eyes. Durty Harry’s will clean the tub, so you’re free to go until the next under-the-paws scrub down.
Beantown Bed & Biscuit is a luxury interactive daycare, overnight boarding and walking service for your dog. Founded on the principal that a tired dog is a happy dog, we strive to provide a fun and stimulating environment that will quickly become your dog’s home away from home.
Back Bay Dog Walking’s canine caretakers lend a helping hand to busy pet owners within Boston city limits by providing services designed to exercise and entertain four-legged friends seven days a week. Parents of new puppies up to 6 months of age can rest easy knowing their babies are being taken care of during the day with the puppy program, where an experienced sitter provides three walks throughout the day as well as a midday meal. Meanwhile, play groups provide energetic pooches the chance to spend a full hour romping around a fenced-in dog park with like-minded mutts.
With multiple locations as well as mobile scanning units, the Animal Rescue League rescues and cares for lost or stray pets with medicine, food, and shelter until owners can be located through the information provided on the animal's microchip. The organization also takes in and scans animals brought in by law enforcement as well as other shelters and rescue programs. As a nonprofit organization, the Animal Rescue League of Boston has only been able to purchase one microchip scanner. With a high volume of intakes and multiple intake locations, animal rescuers frequently face delays in the provision of health and placement services as a result of the equipment shortage. Additional microchip scanners would allow the Animal Rescue League to facilitate more prompt medical and behavioral evaluations, reunions, and adoptions.
