K9 R&R Pet Retreat is a place for your pet to stay while you are away. We are conveniently located near Durham, Hillsborough, and surrounding areas. We provide a peaceful environment so that your pet can enjoy their vacation too. Being a smaller facility than some, we are able to spend quality time with your pet. We learn details about your pet and truly get to know them.

We offer daycare boarding, overnight boarding, full-service grooming, as well as Group Play. Your pet will have a choice of extra activities to enjoy while staying with us. At K9 R&R, your pet will have individualized time with staff members that will keep them happy and healthy, mentally and physically throughout their stay. We truly base our care on rest & relaxation and emphasize a gentle, calm, and happy atmosphere.

Tours are welcome Monday-Friday during normal business hours. Come let us show you how your pet deserves to be cared for while you enjoy your vacation.

Please note that we are closed for check-ins and check-outs on all major holidays, which include: New Year's Day, Easter Sunday, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve Day, Christmas Day.

Although we are closed these days for business, rest assured we are here providing care for your pets every day of the year.

K9 R&R Rescue Sanctuary

We also provide a sanctuary to dogs who have been rescued from death row in shelters. We do not however take in strays or abandoned dogs from the public. The dogs in our sanctuary belong to local rescue groups. Please check out our "Rescue Me" page if interested in volunteering, donating, fostering, or adopting.

K9 R&R Board & Train Program

Let your dog learn while they stay with us overnight or during daycare!

In memory of a very beloved close friend and client, Ms. Ann McCracken. We will always remember the amount of love she had for her dog, Columbus, and any other paws that crossed her path. The K9 R&R family will miss her tremendously and will remember her as we carry out the mission to love and care for animals as she did.
