Many pet owners struggle to find options for dependable care for their dogs and cats when they have to go out of town. Animal Care Center in Oxford, Mississippi provides the perfect solution for pet parents who want veterinary supervision for their furry family members to ensure a healthy, happy, comfortable stay. If you need an affordable home away from home for your four-legged friends, bring your babies to us, and we’ll take good care of them for you. When you board with us, you can have peace of mind while you’re away knowing that your pets are safe and well cared for.

At Animal Care Center, we offer clean and secure, climate regulated boarding facilities that accommodate both dogs and cats. Our loving staff of trained technicians and kennel personnel monitor each pet and provide love and attention throughout their stay. We maintain separate quarters for our canine and feline friends to ensure a stress-free stay for all visitors.

Our doggie guests are accommodated with spacious indoor kennels such as stainless steel Shor-Line cages or Mason kennels (either 3’ x 5’ or 4’ x 6’). complete with bedding. If you would like your pet to have his/her own food, toys, or bed, please bring these when you drop off your pet. If your pet is on any medications, then please furnish these as well. Dogs are walked at least three times a day and have outdoor time.



Kitty lodgers are housed in a separate room with a window view. Each cat has a roomy cage for stretching out and catnapping. Our kitty friends receive individualized attention at least twice a day, and they are supplied with cozy beds, blankets and litter boxes.

All pets are fed food for a sensitive stomach, however pet owners are allowed to bring food from home to avoid upset tummies that occur with a sudden change in diet. Our staff monitors the appetite and urination/bowel movements of each boarded pet, and our veterinarians will be alerted if any problems are noted.

All boarding guests must be current on shots and parasite free for their own protection and for the safety of other boarders and patients. If your pet gets sick while boarding with us, we will make sure that he/she is stable, and will then contact you through the numbers that you leave for additional treatment instructions.

After an extended stay, to ensure that your pet goes home fresh and clean, we recommend a bath. We offer separate bathing services that you may want to take advantage of while your pet is staying with us. Please let us know if you care to have your pet bathed when you make your boarding reservation.

Pets may be dropped off for boarding or picked up during our regular business hours. An additional pick-up time is available Sunday evening at 6:00 p.m. For this service, we require prepayment.

Please call today to make a boarding reservation with Animal Care Center. We recommend booking a spot in advance since we tend to fill up quickly during holidays and popular vacation times.

Come by anytime to check out our kennel facilities. Our boarding service is convenient for pets in Oxford, Abbeville, Holly Springs, Pontotoc, and other nearby areas.
