As part of our annual commitment and way of expressing our gratitude, we’re offering free boarding and daycare to active military families as part of “Operation Home for the Holidays.” Show your military ID to receive free boarding at either of our two Arizona locations or Maple Shade, New Jersey location from November 25 to December 6 and December 20 to January 2.
We want to make accommodations for pets, one less thing our military personnel have to worry about when traveling to see loved ones this holiday season. Plus, to spread the word we’ve teamed up with Arizona Heroes to Hometowns Foundation who welcome home our wounded Service Members who, because of injuries sustained, can no longer serve in the military.
We began Operation Home for the Holidays in 2009 and then expended it to include Thanksgiving. We request that you certify that all dogs be up to date on Rabies, DHPP, Bordatella (Kennel Cough) and Parvo vaccinations. Depending on the age or health of your dog, a veterinarian’s certification of health may be required.
Villa La PAWS has fully supervised indoor/outdoor play areas where the dogs enjoy socialization together during the day, and at night, it’s an indoor Slumber Party where dogs get to sleep in the same room…staying true to their natural pack mentality. This helps prevent separation anxiety. We also have 24/7 webcams throughout our facility, both inside and out, so you can watch your fur kids online while you are traveling. Traveling for a longer period of time? Call and ask about our nominal daily rate for travel beyond the program’s dates.
Who is eligible to participate in “Operation Home for the Holidays”?
This program is designed for:
▪ Arizona active duty, retired or reserve military personnel
▪ Arizona resident families that have an active military child, spouse, parent or grandchild who cannot make it home because of duty restrictions, or are in a hospital recovering from wounds or sickness that precludes them from coming home for the holidays
▪ Arizona resident military survivors that had a child, spouse, or parent that has been Killed in Action (KIA)
Have another situation? Let us know, we’ll definitely consider it. We look forward to seeing you and having your pup for a night or several!
