We Love Your Pets!

My dog and I love going to Armadale Farm -- we've been going for about 10 years or so now. We live in eastern NC and I had a consulting position up there and now am in the area for meetings and taking care of a family member. My dog starts getting excited when we get close to the exit ramp off of I-540. They treat her very special, fight over taking care of her and she LOVE them!!! Which means I do too!

We Love Your Pets!

We've been boarding our dogs with Armadale Farm Kennel for over 12 years and we are very pleased with their service and the care they provide our pets. Their staff know us and our dogs by name when we call, they are always courteous and professional and you can tell they LOVE having the dogs there. They offer all kinds of extras for the dogs - extra walks, playtime etc and our dogs are always happy to go on 'vacation' there.
