Dog Kennels


After we moved to George for business reasons, we bought the small holding we are presently at and started the Barnyard Donkey Sanctuary to accommodate the abused and neglected donkeys in the area. In an effort to raise funds, we converted an old milking stable on the property into 12  boarding kennels.
Through the years from 2000, we have increased the kennel facilities to 67 dog kennels.
We have 4 large grassed and securely fenced play areas for the dogs which they enjoy three times a day. Access to the play areas is through a double gated secure area making it impossible for any dogs to get out. All kennels have wooden beds and soft bedding to create a home like feel. Kennels are sterilized and cleaned daily with clean bedding as needed.
Please ensure that all items brought are CLEARLY MARKED. Please do not bring any items that have sentimental value or which you would be sad to lose. Management will not be held liable for the loss or damage of any items supplied. Should your dog arrive with any ticks, fleas or any other nasties we will treat and charge accordingly.


All dogs are fed twice a day, unless otherwise specified by the owner.
We feed Montego served with something nice to entice.
We understand that there are many varying diets for dogs and are happy to feed according to your dogs diet. Please provide your dogs pellets in a clearly marked well sealed container (no plastic bags). Please also supply a marked cup for measuring, as we cannot be weighing each individual meal.
Should you feed a raw diet please weigh it at home and portion each meal in tubs.


 Please ensure all medication is in its original packaging with the Vets instructions clear. Ensure there is enough medication for the duration of your pets stay. We are able to administer all medication and injections as well as the dressing of wounds. An additional fee will be charged accordingly.



Do not make a big fuss of your pet prior to arrival at the kennels, they pick up on the owners anxiety, which makes it difficult for them.
Kiss them goodbye and we will do the rest.
When your pets arrive back home spoil them with love and playtime.
Do not spoil with junk food and sweets it can cause an upset tummy.
