Handsboro Animal Hospital has the solution to your boarding needs for companion pets. Are you going on vacation, having renovations done to your home, or do you just need someone to watch your pet for a while? If you live in Gulfport, Biloxi, Long Beach, or Ocean Springs, and you need reliable lodgings for your four legged friends and caretakers you can trust, bring your babies to Handsboro Animal Hospital and we’ll take good care of them for you.

At Handsboro Animal Hospital, we provide clean and secure climate controlled indoor boarding facilities that accommodate both canine and feline companions. Our canine guests are housed in comfortable indoor kennels and are taken for walks multiple times each day. We also have outdoor covered runs where pups can stretch their legs out throughout the day.

Our feline friends are housed indoors only. They stay in a separate room away from their canine counterparts so that all boarding guests have a relaxing stay. Kitties are housed in spacious but cozy kennels to keep them purring.

We provide Science Diet for both canine and feline guests. We welcome you to bring food from home to make your pet feel more at home, to avoid any upset tummies, or to provide a special diet. Our staff monitors the appetite and urination/bowel movements of each boarded pet, and our veterinarians will be alerted if any problems are noted. You may also bring your pet’s favorite toys, blankets, beds, or anything that will help them feel more at home. Just keep in mind that if they get bored or angry, they may tear up things in their kennel.

When you board your pets at Handsboro Animal Hospital, you can have peace of mind knowing that our experienced staff will give them all the care and attention they need to keep them healthy and happy. We also go the extra mile to ensure your pet’s safety. We pride ourselves on our safety and reliability, as each border is checked in using a security protocol matching pets to owners. Additionally, all pets are required to be current on their vaccines in order to protect your animal and inhibit the spread of disease.

Serving pet owners in Gulfport, Long Beach, Gautier, Saucier, and Wiggins, Mississippi, whether you need us overnight, for an extended stay, or just during the day, we offer superb boarding services in a safe and stimulating environment. Because space in our boarding facility can fill  up quickly, we ask that you make reservations in advance, especially around the holidays.
