Our Mission for "campers" boarding at Ruskin Animal Hospital is to provide your family member a happy and playful vacation atmosphere in a safe, clean, and healthy environment. 


Convenient location, specialized care, and a well-trained, compassionate staff make us the top choice among pet owners. We treat every pet as if they were our very own family pet, and strive to make their stay with us as comfortable and fun-filled as possible. We hope that they will think of our pet boarding facility as a home away from home. We will go the extra mile to ensure that all your pet’s needs are met during their stay with us. You can specify their individual needs for services such as, medications, grooming, a bath, or even a medical procedure, and we will make sure it happens. Whether your pet is here for a day of pampering, as an overnight guest, or for a medical procedure, we keep our facility climate controlled to ensure your pet feels relaxed and comfortable.

Why should I board my pet?

If you are planning to travel overnight for days, weeks, or even a few months, consider boarding your pet during your trip. Your mind will be at peace knowing that your pet is being taken care of in a safe and secure environment.

When should I drop off my pet for boarding?

Please call our office for a more specific drop-off time when arranging boarding services. In most cases, pet owners will drop-off their pet(s) in the morning of the start of the trip.


For the safety of your pet we do not allow campers to have any treats that could cause an obstruction. All campers must be up to date on vaccines (please see required vaccines below) and flea preventatives. We can assist in organizing, requesting, and procurement of these records, however it is ultimately the owner’s responsibility to make sure the pet’s health record includes the vaccines required or entry into the facilities maybe denied.   If your pet is found to have any parasites such as fleas or intestinal worms they will need to be treated for the safety of themselves and the other boarders.  We will make every effort to contact you if this occurs so that you are informed.   All campers staying 7 days or more will get a complimentary bath.

Preventative Care Requirements
