Your Pet’s Home Away From Home

Make the Boarding Experience a Comfortable One

At Academy Kennels Boarding & Grooming Salon, we are proud to serve you and your furry friends with pet boarding in Albuquerque, NM. We work diligently with you to ensure your cat, dog, bird, guinea pig, or any small pet is comfortable throughout their boarding experience.

When you choose Academy Kennels, our highest priority is your pet’s safety and comfort. Our staff is dedicated to making sure your pet’s special time with us is a great experience.

We will accommodate your pet’s feeding and dietary needs, as well as any medication instruction throughout their stay. It will be up to your discretion for your pet to have daily playtime. We suggest a “going home” groom on your pet’s departure day.

Boarding for Dogs

Treat your canine to a comfortable and spacious private suite with a private sleeping area and access to the sunny and airy atrium. We board each dog alongside other similar-sized dogs, so you don’t have to worry about your little one being stuck with a dog five times their size.

We keep our kennel climate-controlled year-round and cleaned with a safe detergent before arrival for your pet’s maximum comfort. With comfortable bedding, fresh water, and high-quality meals provided, we achieve the ultimate home away from home for your furry family member. To optimize your pet’s stay and ensure their health and safety, please feel free to bring food if they require a special diet and medication with instructions, if necessary.

Boarding for Cats

We board all types of cats in a different area than our canine guests, here they can enjoy a brightly lit room and relaxing atmosphere. Music is played at your cat’s leisure to invoke relaxation and comfort. The Catery is equipped with perches to allow cats freedom to roam.

Comfort is maximized with plush cushions provided for your cat to lounge on and a litter box changed daily. Unless on a special diet, we feed all cats with premium cat food, dry and moist, your preference. We allow all cats to periodically roam the cattery to socialize with other guests if they desire or stretch their bodies and exercise.

Boarding for Birds & Exotics

We are happy to board various small animals and exotics here at Academy Kennels Boarding & Grooming Salon. With two heated rooms located away from high volume noise, we can provide a safe and comfortable stay for birds, guinea pigs, and other small animals or exotics. Our team will assist you with any cages or set-up for your pet to be comfortable during their stay.

“They are very friendly, loving, and caring, clean facilities and took fantastic care of my girls. I love that they can have supervised outside time during their visit. We also took advantage of their grooming services, which were excellent also. Thank you, Academy, for making us feel our babies are safe while we were away.”
