Physical Conditions

Pet owners should always tour a facility before boarding their pet. The physical condition of the facility is a good indicator of what to expect in the way of pet care. Pet kennels should be spacious, clean, safe, and have good ventilation. A high cleanliness standard will protect your pet from disease. The facility should also have a separate area outdoors where your pet can safely play and exercise.


A good pet boarding facility will have sufficient personnel to supervise the animals in their care. The staff should be trained and experienced in caring for animals to ensure your pet receives quality care. Experienced caregivers will be able to tell when an animal is sick or in distress so a veterinarian can be alerted immediately to tend to the animal. Adequate supervision will reduce the risk of accidents or altercations between animals during times of socializing or play. The facility should have an experienced veterinarian on staff or on call 24/7 to handle emergencies or provide routine veterinary care.


It’s not uncommon for pets to try to escape a boarding facility and make a mad dash for home, especially if they’ve never been in a facility before. Good security measures will reduce the risk of your pet becoming a runaway.


The right pet boarding facility for you is one that makes your pet feel comfortable and at ease when staying there. A good facility makes allowances for pets to have their own food, toys, blanket, etc. to make them feel at home.

At All Care Animal Clinic in West Palm Beach, we excel in each of these areas and more. Our goal is to provide your pet with a safe, positive boarding experience that will make him happy to return.
