Hobo Pet Hotel is here to cater to our furry friends and their families! Built in October of 2001 by Carolyn and Dr. Karl Hohenboken, D.V.M, out of the desire for a home-based business, Hobo Pet Hotel extends our love for animals by offering accommodations for dogs and cats while their families are on vacation, out of state or whatever the situation may be. Hobo Pet Hotel believes every dog or cat deserves its own special attention.
This is a family-run business that offers 32 indoor/outdoor dog runs and 9 cat cubbies. To offer extra comfort in your absence, our facility is equipped with heated floors and air conditioning to combat all weather conditions. While you're away, your furry friend will enjoy free time at least 4 times a day, outside of their run or cubby. When outside, our furry friends are never mixed and will enjoy their time leash free in our fenced areas. Our dog runs are 3 feet wide by 14 feet long, with 6 feet inside and 8 feet outside, and privacy walls on the inside portion of the run.
Our staff is compassionate, caring, and have a love for animals just as we do. Open 365 days a year (no drop-off or pick-ups on certain holidays) we are here to meet your needs. We want you to know that your pet is our priority; therefore we are more than happy to have you communicate with us via text message, Instagram or Facebook to check in on your furry friend. We will be glad to ease your heart with some pictures while you’re away.
The Hobo Pet Hotel offers several services at reasonable prices for your convenience.
