It’s never easy to leave your pet, but when you board your pet at Hawthorne, you can rest assured that your pet is great hands. We have been taking care of pets for more than 50 years, and that includes boarding both dogs and cats. Our head supervisor of boarding at Hawthorne Animal Hospital, Steven Zacha and his skilled team not only handle the daily tasks of feeding, occasionally cleaning and care for your pets wellness but also treat them as esteemed members of the Hawthorne family!

​Vaccine Protocol 

Record History and Vaccination Updates Prior to Stay

Boarding reservations for non-clients are NOT to be scheduled or confirmed until vaccine records are provided, reviewed and approved by a technician.   It is the owner’s responsibility to have the records sent to Hawthorne. Once the vaccines have been reviewed, a technician will call the owner  to discuss any vaccines required prior to the reservation. The owner will have the option to make an appointment with their primary veterinarian or with Hawthorne prior to their stay to ensure the pet is sufficiently vaccinated.

A running spreadsheet will be used for boarding staff and reception when taking reservation calls for non-clients. The spreadsheet will act as a checklist for the Tech Flex to use when reviewing vaccine records. After the records have been reviewed and the owner has been informed of the pet’s vaccine status we can confirm and make the reservation, initialing and marking it “complete” on the spreadsheet.

Any client pets that are not up to date on vaccines should be appropriately scheduled for an appointment prior to their boarding reservation. If they are unable to make an appointment prior to their stay, an appointment must be set up in coordination with their estimated check-in time to ensure that the owner is present. Be aware of early check in/late check out fees. Once the appointment is created, the client’s reservation can be scheduled. Upon check-in, pets must complete their appointments before boarding technicians can complete the check-in process.
