Sittings take place at your home and boardings take place at your pet caregiver's home.
All pet caregivers offer pick-up and drop-off for boarding services.
Your pet caregiver will send photos and videos throughout the service in addition to a thorough report card.

“Life-long dog lover & owner!”
I am a life long dog lover and owner! I currently have a 5 year old German Shepard mix that I rescued when she was 6 weeks old. I am the go-to dog walker of my friends and family, and assisted a dog walker in NYC for 6 months. I will treat your pup like my own and can't wait for safe and fun walks!

The Aspen Animal Shelter is Aspen's largest animal shelter. It is a private, for-profit, no-kill shelter that provides a healthy and happy sanctuary for animals without a home. They mainly get their income from The Aspen Boarding Kennel. Each pet that comes through their doors is vaccinated, microchipped, and neutered before they can be adopted.
AAS is known for having one of the top 100 animal shelter programs within the United States - can you say pawtastic? Their special dog walking program allows their shelter dogs the proper amount of exercise and human interaction that each animal so desperately needs. This shelter also believes youth education and community education about the proper care and treatment of animals is essential to reduce homelessness in the pet population. Therefore, they host a variety of educational programs within local schools and communities to teach people these important values.
Lucky Day Animal Rescue has a similar mission and philosophy as well. They are a non-profit organization that only has foster homes for their rescued animals, which means they don't have a physical adoption center. All animals are placed in loving and healthy homes until pups and kitties find their forever homes. Lucy Day was only started in 2011, but they have already helped thousands of animals! They take community involvement and education very seriously and provide educational animal classes for children in the community and host a variety of community-based charity event for their animals throughout the year.
Wintersköl is one of Aspen's biggest winter events and the event is never complete without the super-adorable canine fashion show! It is sponsored by the Aspen Animal Shelter and is a must-attend event. There will be celebrity judges and some of the most pampered pets in the state. This event will take place during January, and well-behaved dogs are more than welcome to attend with you and your family as well. So bundle up and head out to this fun event!
This annual Dog Day Afternoon event is a super fun community carnival! There is a bounce house, a dunk tank, free food and drinks, and so much more. There will also be some adoptable dogs attending the carnival as well. You are more than welcome to bring your pup with you so they can join in on the fun as well. Donations are expected when you attend this event and all proceeds go right to the Aspen Animal Shelter to help their dogs and animals in need!
With specific dates being released closer to the event, this May the Fourth Party is always put on by Aspen Meadows Pet Resort. Celebrating the space-age legacy everyone knows and loves, this party combines fur-buddies and Star Wars (and we aren't talking about Ewoks). They have plenty of puppy-treats available for your furry friend, including cupcakes, dog chews, and super fun lightsaber ice cream bars. (If you give your pup a lick of ice cream, we won't tell.) You definitely don't want your pooch to miss out on this super fun day!
Although this event takes place outside of Aspen, it is definitely worth the drive with your pup. The event is held on a day in February at the Bennett Canine Training facility. Admission to this event is free even if you decide to bring your furry best friend with you - which you pawsitively should! If you actually want to have your dog participate in the event and to have them tested at the end, there is a small fee of $15.00.
We still need to wait for more dates to be announced as the event nears, but the Aspen Animal Shelter hosts numerous Hound and Heart nights for you and your pup throughout the year. Events include food, drinks, puppies, and loads of fun! A portion of the proceeds benefits the Aspen Animal Shelter and Jazz Aspen Snowmass. It is always a night full of adorable puppies and delicious food, and it makes for a great way to spend an evening with your favorite humans and your favorite pups!
