A pet care center is about more than the space where your pet stays - it's about the people who care for them.


Each of our team members, from reception to grooming to kennel, has dedicated their professional lives to making pets happy. We take pride in getting to know your furry family members, watching them grow, & celebrating the little things that make them special. We love what we do, and that love gets passed on to each pet in our care.


The greatest part of our job is the opportunity to share the journeys of pets & their people, the lasting relationships we build, & the memories we make together.

Who We Are

Dog & Cat Boarding


Whether you're traveling for business or pleasure, your pet always deserves a vacation - and you deserve a place & people you trust to care for them every time. Overnight visits mean fun with friends, options to add Salon services or private playtime, & a caring, experienced staff with managers that live onsite. Learn More!

I'm so glad we found Passage East. From daycare to grooming to boarding they are great. Now I don't worry when we travel. The staff really cares about the dogs. There is someone there 24 hours a day & a vet is practically next door. My dog loves Passage East!

Doggy Daycare


Life's better with friends! Daycare is more than just a place to bring your dog when you can't be home - it's a valuable opportunity for them to meet other friendly pups, practice their social manners, enjoy fresh air & sunshine, stay physically & mentally active, and, of course,  do what dogs do best... have fun.  Learn More!

What We Do

Pleased to make your acquaintance!

You've reached the internet home of Passage East, and we're so glad you're here  :) 


Family owned for over 20 years,  Passage East is a full-service boarding, grooming, daycare, and training center where your pets can have fun, make friends, look their best, and feel right at home when life takes you elsewhere.


You can find our 4-acre retreat conveniently located on Route 7 in the heart of Wilton's Cannondale District!


I have four dogs and each is very different with different needs. They did an excellent job. The dogs seemed happy, were greeting the handlers as old time buddies, and I love being able to see pictures of them while I am gone. Have already booked them for our next vacation.
