Peace of mind that your dog is always in a safe and loving environment.
Come try us out for a free half day!
Our goal at the Harbor Hounds is to provide a clean and safe environment for your pooch during their stay with us. We promise to send your dog home tired and happy each evening! We all want the best for our pets, that's why at the Harbor Hounds we only use organic cleaners while sanitizing our facility at the end of each day. We promise to love your dog as much as we love our own dogs!
What you can expect from us
We aren't like all the other day cares. We focus on having a well-behaved friendly environment where your dog can play, rest and learn. Not all day care centers have to be filled with barking and bad mannered dogs! We strive to produce a day care that isn't full of barking and rough housing all day. Your dog will have plenty of time to rest/nap while he or she frolics with the others! Our facility along with our outdoor area is sanitized daily.
A day in the life of a Harbor Hound
Your dog's day will include playing, resting, napping, more playing and lots of cuddles from the staff! We have plenty of doggie beds that your pup can lounge on whenever they decide to! Have a dog that needs extra quiet time? No worries! We have an entirely separate room for those dog's who just need some alone time.
When you pick your dog up
When you pick your dog up, you will be able to see how many times your dog was outside, the number of times they used the bathroom, and if they have received any special requests from the owner. We want this to be as EASY as possible for our clients!
*All dogs must be up-to-date on the following vaccinations:
- Kennel Cough (Bordetella)
- Must have had a clear fecal exam within last 6 months, including Giardia Elisa test

Where it all started
Ever since I was little, I would home any animal that I found that looked like it needed help, from birds to salamanders, to stray mother cats to stray dogs on the side of the road, I have ALWAYS had a niche when it came to animals, especially dogs. My first rescue, was my dog Oakley-my best friend and love of my life. I found him on the side of the road in Florida where I went to college. He was 8 weeks old, covered in fleas, he had mange and was clearly starving. I knew at that moment he was mine, and now almost 6 years later he is the best addition to my life I could have ever imagine.
Fast forward 4 years after college, from office jobs to playing secretary, I came up with the idea of a day filled with dogs. The perfect situation,me surrounded by dogs all day!

I have been fostering with Last Hope K9 Rescue for about 2 months now and let me tell you, it is the MOST rewarding thing I have ever done. So far three dogs I have fostered have all gone to some pretty amazing families! Every foster that leaves takes a piece of my heart. Check the pictures below to see the dogs we have fostered so far! Warning : they are EXTREMELY adorable!
