Here at Kip, we are determined to go the extra mile when it comes to boarding for Newcastle pet owners. Friendlier than your average kennel and cattery, we ensure your four-legged friend is happy, physical, and content with our team while you're away on holidays.
We believe that your pets should be able to enjoy the finest animal resort whilst you are enjoying a break. From the five-star service at Kip to our cosy rooms, nutritious meals, and spacious accommodation, we often find the most challenging part is getting pets to go back home after their stay!
Kip's pet boarding Newcastle service is offered in our Hunter Valley location, surrounded by bushland for your pet to safely explore during their stay. We offer a door to door pet chauffeur service for both cats and dogs, allowing you to focus on getting ready for your holiday while we get your furry friend ready for their own vacation. When you choose Kip for pet boarding Newcastle, you can count on the happiness of your four-legged friend being the number one priority.
We adore cats at Kip and have a beautiful pet resort specially built to house all feline needs. Kip is not your standard cattery; this is a pet hotel, where your cat can enjoy all the benefits of top-quality services and luxurious accommodation tailored to the unique requirements of a kitty.
Our classic room for Newcastle cats is equipped with a comfy cat lounge, and a courtyard for them to explore and play within. Kip's pet boarding for cats is within a comfortable environment, with staff on hand to give your furball all the individual attention they need. Our facilities are safe and secure, and all our cats will be stimulated enough every day without getting into any trouble. No matter the season, all rooms are fully insulated to keep pets comfortable and relaxed year-round.
Whether you need pet boarding for a day, a weekend, or longer, we assure you that your loved one will be pampered at Kip. With lots of extra add-ons for walks, brushes, and extra one-on-one cuddle time, we're positive that we can ensure your cat's stay is purr-fect.
Kip's pet boarding Newcastle service offers everything a dog could need: spacious indoor and outdoor areas, healthy meals, and all the pats in the world from our team of dog lovers. Kip's facilities have been purpose-built to house dogs the way they should be, with enough space for them to be social and play but just enough private time to relax and wind down after a long day.
Whilst staying with Kip, your pooch will be spoiled with a whole range of activities that will keep them busy whilst you are away. From Kip's very own canine water park to the surrounding bushland for your doggo to safely explore, there is no shortage of activities for your pup to enjoy. We offer two styles of room for your furry friend:
Kip's luxury villa is the pinnacle of relaxation. Your pet will have a room to itself, along with all the trimmings they need. A massive private outdoor yard connected to their room is the special touch they need to make them feel most at home. Toys, soft blankets, and a TV ensure your pup is kept busy at all times. For the warmer months, we have air conditioning keeping the room at a comfortable temperature.
Kip is against the outdated massive, shared boarding facilities for dogs. We believe dogs, just like you and I, benefit significantly from having their own space. The classic room is rich in natural light and is well insulated; plus, with a cosy bed, your pooch will have a restful sleep every night. The rooms are regularly cleaned and treated for any nasties, so you can be assured your pup will be safe and sound between the walls of the classic room. Cats enjoy climate-controlled environments that are cosy and exploration friendly.

Just wanted to say Thank you all so much for showing Ellie that her holidays with Kip Hunter ‘Happy Stays’ are so much fun. We loved receiving daily videos of Ellie and helped us enjoy our holiday as well knowing that she was so well looked after and having fun. All the staff are so very helpful and having Ellie picked up and bought home was a blessing, as she is only 1 year old and we were a little cautious of how she would go on her first stay but she has come home happy and relaxed. Thanks once again to everyone who helped Ellie enjoy her first holiday stay.
We have been going to Kip for nearly 2 years now and we love it. The staff are amazing and love and treat our boys as if they were their own. We couldn’t be happier with the care we receive, and we feel like we are part of the Kip family, not just another customer.

Mealtime at Kip
Kip knows that both dogs and cats can have sensitive stomachs. If your pet has any special dietary requirements, we are more than happy to accommodate them. We service premium pet food as standard, and we can tailor a menu to your pooch or cat as required. Mealtimes are supervised, so don't worry about neighbouring animals stealing your pet's goodies.
All pets at kip are entitled to a range of delicious treats as standard to reward good behaviour throughout their stay. There are also lots of extra goodies you can choose from to make their stay better, from pig ears to bones for them to nibble on.
Every Kip pet boarding experience comes with nutritious food, a well ventilated and spacious room with private spaces as well as a secure indoor and outdoor space to explore. Dogs can have social play with the other dogs, whilst cats are given extra time with our handlers to keep them pampered with pats. Cats and dogs are kept separate to ensure everyone has a relaxed time.
Is pet boarding stressful for animals?
Leaving your family pet behind when you go on holiday can be a stressful time – we get it. At Kip, we will ensure your pet is as happy and comfortable as possible. Animals of all shapes and sizes can make use of Kip’s custom-designed space; with a balance of social play and downtime, all pets settle in quickly and will feel right at home. Our staff are pet handling experts and understand the specific needs of your dog or cat and how to make sure they feel safe and comfortable at Kip.
