Make Reservations For Fido!
A new service matches your pet with a loving home away from home so you can travel guilt free.

    Pet owners no longer have to leave Fido or Fluffy in a kennel and feel twinges of guilt about it-when they go away. Because now from Florida to Hawaii there's Pets Are Inn, a sort of bed and breakfast for the four-legged members of the family.
    For roughly the same fee a kennel charges, Pets Are Inn matches your dog or cat with a pet-loving family that's happy to play host for days or weeks. It costs $16 to $26 a day to board a dog; $10 to $12 a day to board a cat. The price varies depending on which area of the country you live in.
    "Animals need to be around people say Pets are Inn owner Jim Platt, who started the franchise with his wife Ann after their pet Chopin balked at being kenneled.
    They say their franchises can find a home away from home for guinea pigs, ferrets, rabbits, birds and squirrels and serve an appropriate breakfast for each. For details call 1-800-248-PETS.
