We will also be offering a once or twice daily "playtime" option for our cat boarders to get out, stretch, scratch, and interact with our kennel staff. So, next time your kitty comes to stay with us, bring a favorite toy (we will have toys available if you don't wish to bring a toy) and we will happily provide more enrichment during his/her stay! Playtime is $5 for 10 minutes, and you can choose this to be a once or twice daily service.

We still offer our regular cat boarding in the traditional stainless steel cages at $27.50/day

Unique Pet Boarding Opportunities

Full boarding facility in Alexandria

When you board your pet with Fort Hunt Animal Hospital, you're ensuring they have access to medical care while you're away! You can enjoy your vacation knowing your loved one is having a ball.

Our boarding charges range from $20 - $30, per day (not per night) and are determined by weight and type of pet. Additional charges may be added for special care boarding, extra walks, medication administration, and requested services.

Speed up the check-in process by completing our boarding paperwork prior to arrival.

Ensure the safety of your pet and others


Due to AAHA regulations, we are not able to accept medications to be administered while boarding in any container other than the original container or container with prescription label affixed.

We apologize for any inconvenience but hope you understand that this is in the best interest of your pet.

Required Vaccines

For the safety of our staff, your pet, and other boarding pets, we require all pets staying with us to be up to date on the following:


• Rabies (1-3 years)

• Distemper (1-3 years)

• Bordetella (6 months)


• Rabies (1-3 years)

• Distemper (1-3 years)

ALL PETS must have a current annual fecal exam

You may provide proof of all required vaccines and tests prior to or at the time of drop off. If your pet does not meet these requirements, we will take care of whatever is needed when you drop your pet off for boarding.

Please note that whenever possible, it is highly recommended by our doctors that pets be vaccinated at least two weeks prior to drop-off. Most vaccines are not considered fully effective until 14-28 days after the pet receives the vaccine.

This is not a requirement, it is simply a medical recommendation meant to keep all of our pets as healthy and happy as possible.

Cancellation Policy

Our policy states that you may cancel your boarding reservation without penalty 72 hours or more before your scheduled drop off date. If you cancel your reservation within 72 hours of your scheduled drop off date, you will be charged $80 per pet scheduled to board.

I have been using Ft. Hunt Animal Hospital for about 30 years and have always found the doctors and staff to be very caring. I appreciate the time spent explaining specific findings and answering questions. I never feel rushed.
