Pet Boarding

Pet Boarding

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.



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.

Dogs must be vaccinated 2 weeks prior to boarding against Rabies, Distemper/Parvo, Canine Influenza and 6-month Bordetella (Canine Cough or Kennel Cough). Proof of an annual Heartworm test and Fecal test are required.

We require all clients to fax vet records before admission. A $15 verification fee will be charged if we must obtain the records ourselves.

Cats must be vaccinated against Rabies, Feline Leukemia, and Feline Distemper. Proof of an annual Fecal test is required.

Records can be faxed or emailed.

Our fax number is (919) 847-2013.

Accommodations for Dogs

Our entire kennel is heated and air conditioned. We offer two types of enclosures for your dog:

Indoor/Outdoor Runs:

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. One daily walk is included.

Be sure to reserve our indoor/outdoor runs well in advance since they book up quickly!

Indoor Runs:

Our indoor runs are comfortable for most small- to medium-sized breeds and are located completely inside the kennel. Two 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.

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.

What to Bring to the Kennel

We aim to provide everything for your pet while they are boarding with us. The kennel is not responsible for lost items and will not replace or pay to replace lost items.

Other Services

Optional activities for boarding pets include Extra Walks, Cookie Time, Play Time, Daily Brushing, Frosty Treats, Frozen Kong, Phototime, Treadtime, Laser Tag, Pamper Time, Cheese & Crackers. Prices range from $2.00 for a Cookie Time to $12.00 per session for Play Time (which is our most popular activity!).

Special Needs

We treat every pet as an individual. However, if your pet has any special dietary or medical needs, fees may be assessed for the administration of these needs. Please ask about the fees when you call.

We can provide bedding at the kennel. We ask that you do not bring any items from home, besides treats and chew bones. Upon request, orthopedic cots are available for dogs with hip problems or arthritis.

Pet Medical Care

While Armadale Animal Hospital is a separate business, they are available to us should your pet need medical care while boarding.

Medications & Diets

We provide a range of Bil-Jac® brand dog foods including Adult, Puppy, Lite, and Senior. There is a $2.00 per day fee to feed food from home, as well as Purina Pro Plan Engastroentric (sensitive stomach) and Natural Balance fish and potato (low allergen). Armadale requires that food from home be packaged in Ziplock-type baggies, 1 meal per bag. All medications must be brought in with the original pill bottles with label. Pills may not be mixed in with dry food packages.  There is a per-dose fee for all medications, supplements, topical treatments, and eye/ear care and medicating.

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.
