RESORT HOURS
When Can I Check-In and Check-Out?

The Little River Pet Resort is open to the public during the following hours:

Monday - Friday 8:0010:30 AM
  4:006:30 PM
   
Saturday & Sunday 9:0011:30 AM
   3:005:30 PM
Please note: In order to maintain a consistent and reliable schedule or play and naps for our guests, we ask that clients honor the hours posted. A fee of $15 or one day's boarding is charged for opening the resort for check-ins or outs during off hours. These off-hours openings are available only in extreme circumstances at the Resort's discretion and must be pre-arranged.

Tours and Site Visits:
We invite you visit the facility! To minimize disruption to our guests daily schedule, we offer tours only during our regular Check-In and Check-Out hours. Call or email to schedule a visit! 

Because inclimate weather affects our guests' daily schedule of playtime, and much of the tour is outdoors, we do not conduct tours during heavy rain.  If it is raining at the time of your scheduled tour, call to see if tours are still being conducted. 

To ensure safety for our guests and for your pet's peace of mind, we do not take pets into the boarding area with their owners during tours or when checking in or checking out.  New visitors and current guests both react in a much more controlled and safe way to our staff introducing a new pup to the environment one they check-in for the first time.  If you are concerned that your pet might not adapt well to the resort environment, we would be happy to schedule a day of daycare to test it out! 

Holiday Closures and Modified Hours:
Our office will be closed to the public on the following days: Easter Sunday, July 4th, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year's Day.

The Resort is open in the afternoon only on Labor Day, Memorial Day, Martin Luther King Day, Presidents' Day, and Columbus Day and in the morning only on New Year's Eve .

Note: Space is limited during holidays and a three day minimum stay is required to confirm a reservation that includes any of these holidays. Discounts and promotions (excluding family discounts) do not apply during holidays
