Furry Friends Pet Stays (formerly Breakaway Boarding Kennels) is the new business of the Bailey-Kruger family.

Spacious boarding kennels cater towards all breeds, all sizes and all ages. Dogs have access to an outdoor play area and are given a snack treat after playtime.

Our cattery is light and airy and caters for the fussiest feline in a quiet comfortable environment. Air conditioning keeps animals cool all year round. Food consists of premium, grain free dry food plus wet food in the evening.

We can also take care of birds, guinea pigs and rabbits.

Has your pet not stayed at a kennel before and are you nervous about boarding them? We are offering first time pets the opportunity to have a morning, afternoon or full day visit to try out their holiday home. They'll gain familiarity with the kennel environment and be reassured that you'll be back to pick them up again! Please call to inquire: 4743 6363.
