Now Boarding updates related to COVID-19

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Now Boarding is taking all the necessary steps to protect the health and well-being of the animals in our care, our staff, and the community we serve.

Daycare, grooming, and private play yard services will be suspended through May 2. Additionally, we are not providing tours at this time.

In response to the shelter-in-place guidelines put forth by Governor Tim Walz, we will continue to provide overnight and daytime boarding services for pets:

  • Owned by other Critical Sector workers (during shift)
  • Requiring care because their owner is physically or otherwise unable to provide appropriate pet care
  • Currently boarded and in circumstance where the owner cannot retrieve them

Unfortunately, we cannot provide services to households with diagnosed or suspected cases of COVID-19.

New modified hours

Starting Sunday, April 5, staff will be on-site between 5:30 a.m. and 9:30 p.m. every day. We can only accommodate curbside check-ins and check-outs. Please call us when you arrive, and we’ll meet you outside.

We are monitoring the presence and spread of COVID-19 and planning for all possible scenarios using information provided by the CDC, WHO, and other credible sources for guidance. We will share updates on our website and social media channels as this situation evolves.

Thank you for your patience and understanding!
