Where to Board Your Pet in San Diego

When you can’t take your BFF on your trip, here are some locally loved spots that will treat your animals like their own


Published:

Camp Run-a-Mutt

Dogs

The cage-free Camp Run-a-Mutt has seven locations in the county, including Point Loma, Kearny Mesa, and San Marcos. Dogs will love the synthetic lawn, splash pond with waterfall and sun deck, ramps, cushy beds, and yes, there’s a bubble machine.

From $60 per night

 

Bunnies

At Kearny Mesa’s San Diego House Rabbit Society, single or bonded-pair bunnies are kept in a roomy individual enclosure. You can tack on additional amenities, including administration of oral medications ($1 per medicine), light grooming ($15), nail trims ($12), and nursing care ($15), including wound cleaning, bandage changes, bathing, and more.

From $22 per night

 

Cats

The feline-only Cat Villa in Encinitas provides luxe lodging with staff present at all times, a secure garden pavilion for fresh air and free play, and a cap on the number of cat guests so quarters don’t get too tight. They have climbing structures, videos of fish and birds on loop, and grain-free food if needed.

From $35 per night

 

Reptiles and Amphibians

Sorry dogs and cats, only exotic animals here. So long as you’re a patient at Pet Hospital of Peñasquitos, you can board tortoises, snakes, lizards, and amphibians.

$19 per night

 

Farm Animals

Care.com, which finds caregivers for parents, kids, your home, and pets, covers the gamut of creatures, from cats and dogs to reptiles, fish, and farm animals. You can look for a petsitter immediately or for a few weeks out, adjust your preferred pay rate ($10–$50 per hour), and specify if you need help with exercising, grooming, training, or all of the above.

From $13 per month for membership plus hourly sitting fees
