Ponderosa boarding kennels and cattery love to look after your Cat or Dog.  Located near the Melbourne Airport the Boarding Kennel offering comfortable pet accommodation has been in operation for nearly 30 years, the site was formerly a Zoo and so in keeping with its history we have decided to maintain the link to the name Ponderosa.
Our dog kennels & cattery  (Pet Hotel) cater for Melbourne metropolitan, and country areas.  We cover the Hume district, encompassing Melbourne airport surrounds, Craigieburn, Greenvale, Keilor, Essendon, Roxburgh Park, Broadmeadows, Sunbury, as well as Eastern and Northern suburbs, due to our proximity to Tullamarine freeway, Hume Highway.
Why not drop your pet(s) off at Ponderosa on your way through to Tullamarine airport?  On the way back you need only pick up your pet(s) and go straight home, and never feel that empty house without your favourite furry friend.
At Ponderosa Pet Resort we pride ourselves on creating a positive and fun stay for your pets.  We want to make your pet as comfortable as possible, and even happy when they return another day.   
We now also offer PET Transport (dog transport and cat transport) - We can easily arrange for crate hire & transport of your pet interstate with the minimum of ease and competitive pricing.
Pet accommodation at an affordable price.

Welcome to Ponderosa Pet Resort - Dog and Cat Boarding

Operating with current management since 2010 we offer caring and professional  dog boarding and  cat boarding.
We have a specialised dog kennels complex - fully grassed exercise area which enables dogs to run freely during their exercise time.
The cattery is climate controlled, and is inside a building, so not open to the elements.  They are located in a separate complex to the dogs.  All suites have three level access and scratching poles to ensure your cat can move about and be entertained during their stay.
We can arrange for pick up and delivery if required.  Prices will be supplied on application. .
