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.

Take a look around and  reach out  to join our pack!

Doggy Daycare

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!

Who We Are

Dog Boarding

Whether you're traveling for business or pleasure, your dog always deserves a good time - and you deserve a place & people you trust to be their second home & family.

Our Facebook page is the place to be to see your doggo in action while they're here at Passage East!

We do our best to update FB daily with as many photos as possible, but please note that it may take a day or two to see your dog on our page - especially during busy periods when there's a lot of guests having fun!

If you haven't seen your dog yet, not to worry - they may be a little camera-shy or we're still playing catch up with all the cuteness.

Don't hesitate to email us or text for an update from our kennel staff in the meantime!
