I was so nervous leaving my kids.  They'd never been boarded.  Laurie really helped ease my mind and sent me pics and vedeos while I was away.  My kids were happy and well taken care of.  Highly recommend.

So before we left for our weekend trip, we had to drop off our two fur babies to be boarded. We have never had to board any of our pets before. And, being the softie I am, I cried after we dropped them off because I just knew that they wondered why we left them by the way they watched us as we drove away. But, no worries! We left them at Best Friends Rescue’s new boarding facility with Laurie Deese. Y’all, this is the place! [❤️]


[❤️] It’s very clean and roomy. It was so big, they were able to stay together in one kennel. They had an inside kennel with a doggie door leading to their own covered and fenced outside kennel. From their outside kennel they could go into the fenced outside play area. From the inside kennel, they could be taken to the inside playroom. They were played with, given treats and spoiled. We received pictures and videos of them from Laurie. We were able to enjoy our trip because we could see that they were enjoying themselves too! They played so much this weekend that once we got them home, all they have done is sleep! [😂] [😂] [❤️]


See our happy faces after we picked up Lucy and Hazel to bring them home? We highly recommend Best Friends and we will use them again when ours have to be boarded. Thank you, Laurie!

Rescue Reviews

Lacey is our 4 year old fur-baby and is a major part of our family.  She is attached to us and has only been left with someone other than us one time.  Finding Laurie and Best Friends Boarding has been a blessing.  The kennels are spotless, large and welcoming; even having a bowl of treats and a cot with a blanket and toy waiting for her arrival.  The dogs have their own doggie door to the outside with areas to potty, play and socialize.  The enormous playroom is equipped with toys for the pups and extra from the owner & staff.  I received pictures and videos each day of Lacey playing and wiggling.  She was so happy.  We will definitely be having Lacey return for future visits.

Boarding Reviews

Gunner and Ruger are our crazy fur-babies and very high maintenance [😂] because they are both different breeds of Spaniels. We always hate to have to leave them alone when we travel or have softball tournaments. We have been searching for almost a year now for a Boarding facility. Our groomer recommended Laurie and Best Friends Dog rescue and Boarding. We knew immediately when we drove up that this was going to be their home away from home. The kennels are in a new building that has tons of room and doggie door with huge fenced area for them to play. Laurie also provide beds, blankets, toys, and treats! Laurie and her staff played with them in a huge playroom for the dogs and she even sent me pictures and videos of them. We loved having that piece of mind that they were safe and taken good care of. We will definitely be returning for more visits. We highly recommend this facility for anyone with fur babies.
