Quality pet care: boarding and daycare options for your furry friends

Posted: 2pm 27 Apr 2020

If there’s one member of the family unfazed by social distancing, and soaking up all the extra attention at home – it’s our furry friend!

However, if you become unwell, are working odd hours, or find yourself having to take care of others, there are still plenty of safe and easy pet boarding and daycare options available.

Kylie Mackay, Resort Manager of Northshore Pet Resort at Rothwell, is assuring the community that, as an essential service, the doors are still open for those in need of pet care during the COVID-19 crisis.

Times may be tough, but Northshore Pet Resort is tougher, and they’re here to relieve the burden on busy families.

In recent weeks, Northshore Pet Resort has cared for pets whose owners:

  • Are emergency service workers on long shifts
  • Have gone to hospital to have babies
  • Have become unwell
  • Have been in quarantine or isolation
  • Are health care workers travelling to provide essential services

And it’s not just medical or work-related circumstances Northshore Pet Resort can accommodate for.

If your pooch is bored, playful or simply needs a break and change of scenery, drop them off for some social time at doggy daycare.

Finally making a start on those home improvements you’ve been putting off? Book your dog or cat in for a short or long-term stay so they remain safe and content, and you can get that project done!

Contactless drop-off & pick-up

Like other businesses in the Moreton Bay Region adapting to the interim ‘new normal’, Northshore Pet Resort is offering contact-free drop-off and pick-up.

Call ahead, pay over the phone (or via Eftpos), and your beloved pet can be picked up from the safety and convenience of the carpark. Transport and bath service options are also available – just another step to ensuring happy and healthy pets, as well as their owners.

More accommodation for doggies & moggies

Mountain View Pet Retreat at Wamuran is open for business. The Retreat, which offers short and long term-stays, has introduced a few changes to help protect everyone and reduce the spread of COVID-19. If you require emergency accommodation for your pet, Mountain View Pet Retreat can also pick up directly from your house, while adhering to social distancing rules.

Set on 40 picturesque acres overlooking the Samford Valley, Samford Pet Resort is another great option for your furry friends – with all the five-star luxury extras! Samford Pet Resort is also helping the community with vet appointment transport options, and even pet medication and food collection.

Cypress Lodge Boarding Kennels & Cattery in Burpengary has announced a 40% discount on boarding due to COVID-19 emergency requirements (hospitalisations, emergency/essential workers etc). It’s their way of giving back to the community, and yet another great example of a local business proving ‘tough’ in the face of challenging times. Cypress Lodge is located just 3 minutes off the Bruce Highway at Burpengary, between Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast.

Pet shops and cafés to keep those tails wagging!

You’ve got the accommodation and daycare sorted, and now you can still get all your pet essentials and doggy boredom busters to keep those tails wagging.

The doors are open and knowledgeable staff are ready to help:

As essential services, pet boarding and vets currently remain open, and people are allowed to travel to these places of business. So, get in touch with your local store or veterinary practice to continue caring for your pet and/or if you have any concerns.
