Local Cat and Dog Boarding for Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Connecticut Residents

Professional, personalized & flexible boarding for all your travel plans.

Cat and Dog Boarding While You’re Away

At Mini Manor Kennel we board dogs and cats of all sizes while you are out of town. We take pride in treating your pets like family while they are in our care. We personalize their stay so that they are comfortable and happy at all times. When you choose to board with us you can feel confident that your pet is in good hands.

We are located at 1011 Shermantown Road, Saunderstown, Rhode Island 02874 local to Rhode Island, Connecticut and Massachusetts residents.

We have been bringing our somewhat elderly yellow lab here for just over a year now (after moving from out of state). We were worried about finding a new place after having used one in our old location for 15 years. We and our dog have been very happy with the care and attention he gets at Mini Manor. A positive sign is when your dog walks right into the office!
