Shadow's Retreat was established from the love of my best friend “Shadow”. She was my devoted companion for over 10 years. She gave me unconditional love & made me realize that all pets deserve all the Tender Loving Care we can give them. We started in business on November 1, 2007. We are dedicated to over indulging and pampering your pet. We provide extraordinary care to satisfy every pet. Shadow's Retreat is devoted to giving all pets that TLC they deserve. The selection of a temporary home for your pet is an important decision. We want your dog to be able to say that Shadow’s Retreat is their home away from home. With few exceptions, most companion animals have been raised within a home environment and treated more like a family member than a pet.
As a pet owner, you have the right and obligation to demand the best for your pet. You want to feel comfortable about the place you let your pet stay. There are numerous pet boarding facilities available, but not all have your pet’s best interest at heart. At Shadow's Retreat it is our number 1 priority. The facility is an indoor kennel located 7 miles south of Leesburg on Evergreen Mills Road. It is a stress free country environment located on approximately 10 acres. It is a small kennel with a maximum of 20 dogs. This allows all dogs to get individual attention. Dogs are walked 5 to 6 times per day & get an individual playtime each day. We live on the property so your dog has 24-hour care. The facility is heated & air-conditioned. Beds are provided or you can bring your own. There is a fenced in play area where dogs can run free. They also can go on nature walks through the woods and by a stream with a chance to get wet in the summer. Medical records are required & all dogs must be up to date on vaccinations prior to boarding. If Bordetella has not been given within the past 6 months it can be given when they arrive at a cost of $30.00. We also accept Titer Certificates. We offer daily hours 365 days a year.
Forms can be downloaded and printed at home so you can fill them in at your leisure and bring them with you on your first visit. Once you’ve completed these forms, they are kept on file so you do not need to fill them out again. You only need to up date the vaccination record. Tours are available by appointment only.
