Welcome To Applewood Boarding Kennel in Benton Maine

We will be taking time off during the holidays!

We will be closed after December 15, 2017

Pet Wash Update

After December 12, 2017, we will be forced to close our Self Service Pet Wash on weekdays to protect our equipment from the winter temps.

This is due to users failure to close the exterior door, thus putting our equipment at risk.

We will have the Pet Wash Open on weekends except:

December 29-Jan 1, 2018

January 19-20, 2018

February 9-10, 2018
