As much as you love your family pet, at some point, you may need to find a place for them to stay while you are away.  We understand that it can be difficult to place your pet in the hands of someone else, which is why we are here to guide you through each step of the way.
At St. Matthews Animal Clinic, our trained and devoted Patient Care Team handles the specific needs of each pet in our care.  We are open for boarding drop-off and pick-up 7 days a week! All pets are closely supervised by our Patient Care Team members, and we have an available medical staff onsite should any concerns arise.
We offer many treat and enrichment options to personalize your pet’s stay.  We take the trust you place in our facility/staff very seriously when you leave your family member in our care.  Our Patient Care Team understands we cannot match the comforts of your own home, however, we strive to provide an environment that is orderly, low stress, and safe.

Our available space is limited, and we ask that you call in advance to schedule your pet’s stay.  If you are a current client and would like to request a boarding stay, please click HERE.

If you are a new client, we ask that you give us a call at 502-895-8100 so that we can personally set up your detailed visit.

Any pet that is not current on our requirements prior to a boarding reservation can be completed upon drop-off, however, our team prefers this to be scheduled in advance.  Our doctor team does have flexibility in providing care for your pet’s needs, with the expectation of the Canine Influenza vaccine.  Both the temporary booster and final booster must be completed and your pet must be two weeks out from the second injection to be eligible for boarding with us. *If any fleas are noted on your pet, they will be required to receive a preventative (such as Nexgard) to treat your pet and prevent other pets from contamination.
