At Cheat Lake Animal Hospital Boarding (CLAHB), we treat your animal like the VIP (Very Important Pet) they are. When you and your pet(s) are here, you are not our “clients” – you are our Family.  Your animal(s) will be welcomed with loving arms and compassionate hearts. We will look after your exotic pets, too birds, reptiles, guinea pigs, rabbits, and ferrets.  We love them all, big and small!

Your pets are our top priority.  We recognize that they are each different and unique in their own ways, and they each have their own personalities that we fully encourage them to express while staying here with us. 

You are welcome to bring any personal belongings for your pet (i.e. favorite toys, blankets, beds, etc.) to help make them feel more at home.

We guarantee that your pet’s stay will be one that is not only pleasant, but one that is enjoyable and memorable.

Your VIPs are our VIPs. Your pet’s experience with us will leave a lasting paw print on their heart and yours.

Here's Why You Should Board Your Pets at CLAHB!

"A la Carte" Extras

CLAHB offers various amenities that you can choose (for a minimal fee) while your pet stays with us. In addition to our regular 3x/daily activities, we also offer "Cuddle Time" (10 minutes of individual/one-on-one time with your pet), "Pamper Time" (10 minutes of brushing or combing to make them feel like a star), and "Romp Time" (10 minutes of active play with your pet).

Because we are a full-service veterinary, boarding, and grooming facility, we are also able to perform any other services your pet may need while he/she is staying with us. Please inform our staff upon drop-off if your pet needs anything "extra" while here.

Caring Staff

CLAHB is staffed by dedicated and knowledgeable professionals who take the time to get to know your animal on a personal level. When your animal stays with us, you can be assured that their needs and accommodations will not just be met – they will be exceeded.

Clean & Comfortable

Lodging areas are cleaned several times daily during the outings that the doggies receive, and cats are provided with fresh litter daily. Our facility is climate controlled. Fresh food, water, and blankets are always provided. We pride ourselves on being your pets' home away from home. Cleanliness and a well-kept facility are what we project to our families.

Space for Fun & Play

Our facility offers a spacious outdoor courtyard where your pet can run and play with the staff as well as an indoor area for when the weather just does not want to cooperate. Cat cottages are in a separate space with ample room and fun hiding places. They are kept in a different area than the doggies, to help keep kitty anxiety to a minimum.


Along with providing comfort, we also strive to provide safety for your pet. He/she will be monitored at all times when outside as well as inside their kennels. Our facility is located directly beside our hospital, which is fully staffed 24 hours a day, adding that extra bit of security for your peace of mind.


As a guest to our boarding facility, we would like to inform you of the amenities our establishment has to offer. Foremost, this includes both excellent pet care and comfort. All rooms are climate controlled and all pets are monitored daily by our well-trained staff.

Our kennel staff is extremely caring and loving of the pets that stay at our facility. They treat them all like a part of their family.


We have special holiday boarding policies.

Please ask a staff member about these policies when you request your reservation.
