Home Alone Pet Cottages is a boarding facility for dogs and cats located on a scenic country property in Keswick, Ontario. We recently received the Georgina Chamber of Commerce award for Business Excellence for outstanding Micro Business.

We are a licensed facility and are inspected annually by the Town of Georgina. Our business has been in operation since 1998 and we are recommended by local veterinarians.

For your dog, we offer spacious, individual "Pet Cottages", with attached outdoor patios. Your cat will enjoy their stay in our four-level "Kitty Condos", with ample area for lounging and play.

We want your pet to enjoy their stay with us and work towards making them as comfortable as possible. Therefore, we encourage you and your pet to come and visit our facility before you board.

For your convenience, we operate the kennel 7 days a week*, however, in order to minimize disruption to the pets already at the kennel, we are open for pick-ups, drop-offs and tours only during certain hours every day. Our morning hours are from 9:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. and our afternoon hours are from 4:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. We are also closed a few times a year to perform kennel maintenance. Also, due to the fact that our kennels are electrically heated and very expensive to heat in the colder months, we will no longer operate from late-January to the end of February.

We hope to see you and your pet soon!

Revised boarding contract effective
Sept. 6, 2014

Due to personal reasons, we have extended our shut down periods, as follows:

Annual Winter Shut-Down
January 23 to March 1
Due to the high cost to heat the kennels (over $2,500 per month in the winter) we can no longer justify operating during this time.

Annual Spring Maintenance Shut-Down
May 30 to June 20
We take this time to perform our annual
kennel repairs (ie. painting, tiling, upgrading fencing, etc.)

Annual Fall Maintenance Shut-Down:
September 12 to September 29
