It's where VETS leave their Pets!


Yamba Boarding Kennels & Cattery has been proudly owned and operated by Garry and Tina Downes since July 2000.

In addition to an on-call veterinarian, we have the combined experience of over 45 years of caring for domestic animals, so you may rest assured your pet will receive a high standard of love, care and personal attention.

Dogs must be vaccinated with at least a C5.

Cats must be vaccinated with at least an F3.

Proof of vaccination is required on, or before, the day of arrival. Unvaccinated pets, or those without proof, will NOT be accepted.  


We do NOT accept pets with sutures, or pets requiring bandage/dressing changes!

The cattery is located away from the dog kennels, so as to minimise noise and/or stress. It is surrounded by native gardens in order to provide a safe and relaxing environment.

Likewise, small and large dogs are housed in separate blocks in order for everyone to fully enjoy their stay.

Basic brushing is included in your daily tariff, but if your animal has a long coat which requires extra attention, please enquire about grooming fees when making your booking.

To minimise unnecessary stress and/or excitement - we do NOT allow people to visit, or take their pets out for day trips.


We ask customers to respect our drop-off and pickup times, so all our boarders will have a quiet and enjoyable stay with us (and owners will avoid paying the $80 "out of hours" penalty fee).




7:30am to 10am   and   4pm to 6pm

$80 PENALTY FEE if outside kennel hours

(Closed Sunday Mornings and Christmas Day)
