PLEASE NOTE: This form is NOT for scheduling your reservation. To schedule your reservation, please call 815-288-3394.

Please fill out and submit this form at least 48 hours prior to your reservation.

We will NOT release your pet to anyone without authorization. Please inform them we may ask for identification.

PLEASE NOTE: All medications need to be brought in their original packaging or prescription bottle. We will not accept medications that are not labeled properly.


We REQUIRE Rabies and Distemper/Rhino vaccines for any cat boarding with us. If you have not had your pet vaccinated here, please enter the veterinary clinic name and phone number where you pet has received vaccines. If your pet is not current, we will vaccinate while he/she is here.

If receiving a vaccine at River Ridge Animal Hospital, a Wellness Exam will also be performed at a fee of $24.10.

Please notify us when you arrive at the clinic if you have brought something different.

Occasionally, some pets develop diarrhea due to stress while boarding. This condition is not uncommon and usually responds to minimal medical treatment. There is a fee for the medication dispensed. Should your pet have this problem, please indicate how you would like us to proceed.

If, while boarding, the kennel staff notice any other issues with your pet that need a Doctor's attention, please indicate how you would like us to proceed.

In the event of a serious medical condition, you will be contacted. If we are unable to reach you, your pet will be treated at the Doctor's discretion until you can be reached.

**PLEASE NOTE: For the best interest of all pets under our care, all patients will be examined for external parasites (fleas, lice, ticks) while here. If parasites are found, the pet must be treated at the owner's expense to prevent spread to other patients. Our staff will explain if any additional follow up care is necessary.

Thank you for taking the time to fill out our online boarding admission form. This helps make the check-in process more efficient.

We have had such great treatment of our dog, Maggie at River Ridge, even when we've called during off hours. From the doctors, office staff, groomers, boarding and daycare staff, everyone has been friendly and professional. Our dog loves to go there and we feel confident that she is getting the best care from everyone.
