Effective immediately, a 3% Credit card processing fee will be charged when using credit or debit cards when paying your invoice at our kennel. Other payment options are checks or cash.


After 30 years of being in the dog and cat boarding business, we have elected to take a couple of vacations during the year that will necessitate the closure of the kennel during those times. The following is the schedule for now. If you have an emergency and need boarding please feel free to email us or text.

We are OPEN for business except for the closure periods listed below.

  • Next closure will be January 8, 2024.

We want to thank everyone for choosing Shertom Kennels for their boarding needs and many of you have been with us since the beginning. We appreciate your continued loyalty and all the many referrals over the years.

A great big thank you to everyone!

EFFECTIVELY IMMEDIATELY: Shertom Kennels no longer requires the Bordetella vaccine but is still highly recommended to vaccinate your dog.

NOTE ON BORDETELLA: When getting the Bordetella for your dog, please vaccinate your pet at least 2 weeks or more prior to your dog arriving at the kennel unless your vet uses a killed Bordetella virus. If the killed virus is used, the waiting period would be 5 days or 72 hours to build up titer levels before bringing your dog into the kennel. The live virus can shed out to the other dogs in the kennel and your dog and the kennel dogs can be susceptible to kennel cough.

Please bring or send proof of vaccination.
