Owned by a vet and vet technician for over 30 years, Armadale Farm Kennel has been providing a healthy, safe, comfortable & happy environment for your pet while you are away. Even though we have a large facility, we treat each pet with individual care. Our staff takes great pride in getting to know you & your pet as well as tending to any special needs they may require. You can download our general admission form using the button below.GENERAL ADMISSION FORM
Armadale Farm Kennel requires that all pets coming in for boarding, day camp OR grooming must be up-to-date on all vaccinations. This is for the safety of your pet as well as all of the other pets we have boarding in our facility.
We prefer all clients to fax vet records before admission. A $15 verification fee will be charged if we must obtain the records ourselves. Otherwise, a written copy must be presented when your pet checks in.
Dogs must be vaccinated against Rabies, Distemper/Parvo, and 6-month Bordetella (Canine Cough or Kennel Cough). Proof of an annual Heartworm test and Fecal test are required.
Cats must be vaccinated against Rabies, Feline Leukemia, and Feline Distemper. Proof of an annual Fecal test is required.
Routine veterinary care can be arranged through us with Armadale Animal Hospital if necessary. All veterinary costs before, during, or after boarding will be borne by the owner of the pet.
Make sure we have all of your pet’s vaccine information BEFORE drop-off day. You can send them by mail, fax, or you can drop it off and receive a tour when you come. Most veterinary offices will forward the information to us if they receive ample notice. It can be time consuming to you and our staff and can delay travel plans if we have to attempt to get the information at drop-off time.
If we must verify vaccination information, you will be assessed a $15.00 verification fee. Our fax number is (919) 847-2013.
We require a $25.00 non-refundable deposit for all reservations. The deposit will be applied to your boarding visit at check out.
We require a 72-hour cancellation notice prior to the reservation start date for non-holiday stays. We require a 5 business day cancellation notice for all holiday stays prior to the reservation start date. If you cancel within the cancellation guidelines, your deposit will stay in your account to be used for future visits. We do not refund deposits.
Reservations will not be made without a deposit. Deposits will be made at the time of reservation booking. Armadale accepts cash, check, Visa®, Mastercard®, and Discover®.
Tours & Check-ins
We welcome you to tour our facility before your reservation date. We will ask you to say your farewells in the lobby at the time of drop-off. Please allow 10-15 minutes at check-in to fill out an admission form and any other necessary paperwork needed for drop-off as well as discussing any issues your pet may have with our staff.

Accomodations for Dogs
Our entire kennel is heated and air conditioned. We offer three types of enclosures for your dog:
Indoor/Outdoor runs are our most popular enclosure. Your dog can run in and out through a swinging door throughout the day. Dogs do not have outdoor access at night. These runs measure 15 feet long and are 3 to 4 feet wide. A daily is included.
Be sure to reserve our indoor/outdoor runs well in advance since they book up quickly!
Our indoor runs are comfortable for most small- to medium-sized breeds and are located completely inside the kennel. two outdoor walks daily are included each day as a part of the standard boarding rate. Each indoor run measures 3.5 feet by 4.5 feet.
Accomodations for Cats
Our cat facility is separate from the dogs and is bright and quiet. Skylights add natural light to the cat environment. Your cat will have an opportunity to exercise and play every day.
Each cat condo measures 3 foot by 3 foot and is about 6 foot high. There are two levels to the condo which include a perch on each level.
