Carolina Pet Resort in the Irmo area of Columbia, SC, is family owned and operated, and we are committed to making your pet’s stay pleasurable and safe. We enjoy what we do and are proud of the excellent reputation we have built. We offer boarding for dogs, cats, and other small pets. We also provide grooming for dogs.

Carolina Pet Resort has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau and has been a member of the IBPSA (International Boarding & Pet Services Association), or its predecessors, since we opened the pet kennel in 2001.

The 5,300 square foot facility is located on 8 wooded acres in the Irmo/Dutch Fork area NW of Columbia, SC. The building is centrally heated and air conditioned, and features an ADT security system. Carolina Pet Resort is large enough to meet your needs, yet small enough to ensure personal attention.

Carolina Pet Resort is open 7 days a week. Reservations for boarding your dog, cat, and other small animals are required for both boarding and grooming. Payment can be made by cash, debit card and credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express).


We are open seven days a week:

Monday-Friday: 8:00–12:30 & 3:30–7:00
Saturday: 9:00–11:00 & 5:00–7:00
Sunday: (no morning hours) 5:00 – 7:00

Closed (no drop offs or pick ups) on New Year’s Day, Easter, Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.
