The Twin Cities’ Pet Lodging and Animal Wellness Center

At Auntie Ruth's Furry Friends we know that your pets are part of the family, and we make them part of our family while they’re here-whether they come for a day or spend a whole vacation with us.

We offer:

  • Premium lodging for dogs, cats and other furry friends
  • Animal daycare
  • Skilled convalescent care for post-surgical, geriatric, diabetic and other special-needs pets
  • Pet grooming
  • Massage with or without Young Living Essential Oils©
  • Behavior Training
  • Nutrition and wellness products for pets

We’d love to have you visit with your pets. You’ll find a clean and temperature-controlled, welcoming environment, friendly staff, and room for your little (or not so little) ones to run and play. Let us know if you’d or your pet would like to arrange for a visit or make a reservation.

A wonderful thing for you to know about Auntie Ruth's is that we are the only boarding facility in the twin cities that mandate employees to be professionally training by a Certified Professional Dog Trainer with Behavioral Expertise (CPDT-KSA.) Staff go through several training sessions in order to be able to provide the most safe and stress free handling of all pets here. Staff learn how to read body language, safe group play, fear and aggression. 

After all, you don’t want to leave them with just anyone. So bring them to the place they’ll feel at home and be well cared for.
