RUN, REST, & RESTORE AT THE VON TRAPP ANIMAL LODGE

Our Animal Lodge is proud to offer one-of-a-kind daycare, boarding, and rehabilitation services for dogs and cats under the close supervision of a licensed veterinarian. 

Visit us soon and let your pets Run, Rest and Restore their minds and bodies with guidance from a friendly licensed professional...

Studies have shown us that living with pets relieves stress, promotes social interaction, and improves our own emotional and physical health. At the von Trapp Animal Lodge, we give back to our selfless companions - pets give us so much yet they ask for very little in return. Allow your furry friends to experience our unique pet retreat, which provides alternative sources of pain and stress relief as well as the opportunity to safely socialize with other animals, all while you’re at work or on vacation.
