September Brings Pups to the Purr’n Pooch Playground



September may have the kids heading back to school, but at Purr’n Pooch our friends are back to the playground. Our daycare and boarding dogs love to learn, play and socialize with friends all over the dozens of supervised playgrounds and water parks we have designed specifically for their enjoyment. From games of chase with dogs that share their personality and temperament to down time hanging with our staff, we help you to keep your dog’s mind stimulated all day long.

September is also Happy Healthy Cat Month and one of the biggest myths about cats is that they can be left for long periods of time without socialization. At Purr’n Pooch, we have created a custom cattery to meet our feline friends’ social needs with rock walls and shelves for playing and lots of TLC from staff who visit them throughout the day and night.

Call us in Tinton Falls at 732-842-4949 or in Wall at 732-528-8100 to make your pet’s reservation. Be sure to also reserve your pet’s stay now for the holidays.

Funds raised from the gala will help continue to support these heroic organizations.
