The staff members at The Aurora Kennel know that boarding a cat or dog can cause stress for both the animal and its owner, which is why they give personal attention to all of their furry guests. Boasting 43 indoor and outdoor runs, each dog is able to have its own private space complete with a bed, blanket, food, and water. At the facility’s fully enclosed play area, staffers take time to toss around toys and let pups run across 1,600 square feet of outdoor space during one-on-one sessions.
To avoid unnecessary excitement, The Aurora Kennel's staff keeps unfamiliar pets separate and limits pickup and drop-off times to select hours. It also requires that all animals stay up to date on vaccines and sign a temporary peace treaty between cats and dogs. To ensure pet owners are fully informed about their services, the kennel publishes a handy Stuff You Need to Know page.
Berea Animal Rescue Friends (ARF) started in a family garage outside of Cleveland after a small group of animal lovers recognized the desperate housing and healthcare needs of homeless animals in the area. Now, 20 years later, ARF continues to help stray and abandoned animals by providing shelter, food, and medical necessities—as well as loving care and companionship—in a more formal facility for as long as needed. In addition to traditional adoption services for cats and dogs, ARF also runs temporary foster-care programs and partners with a correctional facility to operate a prison foster program in which dogs receive basic obedience training.
Posche Paws Pet Resort & Spa caters to canine comfort and safety by staffing one employee for every 20 resident dogs, as well as an onsite veterinarian. Pets stay in private 4'x9' enclosures, which are regularly cleaned and sanitized and come equipped with a bed and food. Several suites also feature live webcams so that families can scrutinize their dogs’ hands during poker games. Music or television pipes through the building to provide familiar noises that ease stress, and during the day, pets can run outside or play with toys in the 3,500-square-foot facility. Spa treatments also add a touch of luxury for furry companions and include flea baths, coat clippings, and blueberry facials.
At White Horse Equestrian, riders earn their spurs during lessons, classes, and outings run by the ranch’s corral of coaches. Students learn horsemanship and riding techniques according to their existing skillset, whether acquiring advanced communication skills or fundamentals, such as where in the saddle to store a pony's sunglasses on cloudy days. Casual visitors can board rented steeds for trail rides, attend themed summer camps, or use the idyllic grounds to host a birthday party featuring games, crafts, and instructional trots.
