Suntar’s Kennels, located in Saco, Maine has been offering quality boarding/daycare and grooming services at our family run facility for over 25 years. The owner of the facility is on-site.

We provide your pet with a healthy atmosphere and the personal attention you would provide to them in your own home. Our facility is in a convenient country setting, close to U.S. Route 1, which makes it an easy commute to and from I-95 and the surrounding towns of Old Orchard, Biddeford, Scarborough and Portland.

Our kennels are temperature controlled to ensure your pet is warm in the colder months and keeping their cool when the warm weather approaches. Your dog will also enjoy individual walks and consistent nap times.

We are considered an essential business and we will remain open to accept boarding and daycare clients. We are only offering curbside drop offs and pickups MONDAY – FRIDAY, 7 AM-10 AM and 4 PM-6 PM  to ensure everyone is practicing the appropriate social distancing. If you have current appointments that you would like to cancel, we would greatly appreciate as much notice as possible. We would like to thank all of our dear clients for your support and flexibility during this difficult time and look forward to continuing to take care of your fur babies as you need us.
Please call 207-282-1948 to schedule drop offs by appointments only.

Pet Boarding

Pet Suites, Play Time and Roomy Play Yards Your Dog Will Love!

Suntar’s Kennels knows your pet is your family. Our staff will provide quality care and playtime to ensure the best experience possible with us. We have both indoor/outdoor suites for small, medium and large dogs which are connected to roomy play yards in a very comfortable country setting. Each dog will have a raised Kuranda bed and soft microfiber blanket for added comfort!

Throughout the day, approximately every 2 hours, the dogs go out to play. We encourage friendly dogs of similar size to play in the group play, with the owner’s permission. Play groups are organized by size, age and energy level to ensure everyone has the best time possible.

Dogs who prefer their independence will be taken into the yard by themselves and also be entitled to individual play time and walks on the property. All of the dogs staying with us will enjoy one-on-one time with our staff taking walks and of course, everyone will have their nap-time and it is our goal that everyone has a pleasant night’s sleep!

We highly recommend a trial visit during the day so your dog can become familiar with our facility, suites and routines prior to boarding. Especially if you are considering bringing your puppy to stay with us!

Vaccination Requirements

In order to board your pet we require that each dog be vaccinated against rabies, distemper and Bordetella. Cats must also have up-to-date rabies and distemper shots.

Unneutered Dogs

A service fee of $10 will be applied for unneutered dogs over the age of 1 year.

Day Care

A place where new friendships blossom!

Suntar’s Kennels is the perfect place for your dog if you work all day and your dog needs to burn off some energy. Socialization and exercise are important to the overall health of your pet. Our Day Care is a perfect solution for you and your dog. Drop-off and pick-up times are the same for Boarding or Day Care.

Your dog will enjoy play time approximately every 2 hours. Play groups are organized by size, age and energy level to ensure everyone has the best time possible. We even serve your dog snacks and lunches if the owner provides it.

Aggressive or unpredictable dogs are not permitted in the Day Care group.

The Cat Room

The purr-feat place for your feline friend!

We know how important it is for your cat to feel safe and relaxed when they’re not in their own home. Our Cat Room is specifically designed for your cat’s ultimate experience. While staying with us each cat will have their own condo and be let out several times a day. This room feels like home with cabinets to climb and hide in along with a large window for bird watching. This bright and sunny room is located in the front of the building so if your cat likes to be social, they can see customers coming and going from our facility. There will be toys, treats and even a sink to drink from!
