Boarding for Dogs and Cats in Glen Carbon and Edwardsville

Comfy Accommodations & 24/7 On-Site Vet Care

You always want your pet by your side, so when you have to head out of town, it can be hard to find someone who will care for your dog or cat as well as you do—especially if they have serious medical issues.

When you board your pet at Hawthorne Animal Hospital in Glen Carbon, you can trust our team will treat them like our own. We’ve been caring for pets for more than 50 years and know how to ease the anxiety and worry many feel when they’re separated from their families. Our skilled staff not only performs the daily tasks of feeding, walking and exercising your pet requires, but ensures their stay with us is like their own mini-vacation, complete with plenty of playtime and belly rubs.

Most important, because our cat and dog boarding kennels are connected to our pet clinic, your pet has access to an on-site veterinarian and full medical staff 24/7. We can administer medication and injections, monitor your pet’s condition overnight and even deliver emergency care on the spot, no matter the time of day! This high-level medical boarding ensures older pets and those with chronic health conditions are continually supervised.
