We all know that summer is one of the most popular times of the year to get away from home and go on a fun, and relaxing, vacation. The kids are all out of school, the weather is beautiful, sunny, and warm – really what more could you want right now other than to gather up the whole family and go on a trip together? The only problem in this situation is that sometimes our entire family, the members of the furry, whiskered persuasion, can’t always make the journey with us.

When you’re leaving your pet and going away for a while you want to know your beloved companions are in good hands and being well taken care of. Luckily, Long Island has many excellent kennels and boarding locations throughout Nassau and Suffolk County to choose from. Now don’t worry, go have the time of your life, enjoy your vacation, and leave the pet care worries to the professionals.
