What makes Pender Pet Retreat so special?

It all starts with us selecting only passionate pet lovers for our team and having 6 acres of suites and trails helps too!  Additionally, we have trained staff on site 24/7.  We’ve been serving the Northern Virginia community for over 35 years and understand the needs of pet owners and their companions.  We strive to offer the absolute best value of any pet retreat around and encourage everyone to drop in for a tour during our lobby hours.  It’s one thing to read it here, its another to see for yourself.

What types of animals board at Pender Pet Retreat?

We accommodate all ages, sizes, and shapes of healthy cats and dogs here at our 6 acre retreat.  Cats have their own separate comfy condo area and dogs stay in several different sized suites, depending on weight and owner preference.

What types of extras do you offer?

At Pender Pet Retreat, our pet guests enjoy our “Stay, Play, and Spa” experience with discounted activity packages and spa packages.  Our activity and spa packages are designed to keep your pet engaged and pampered throughout each day of their stay with us.  We also offer pet owners their choice of individual activities and spa services through our a’ la carte menu.  To learn more, please go to our reservation page, select the dates of your stay, and click on each activity to expand detailed information.

Where is Pender Pet Retreat located?

We are conveniently located at 4508 Upper Cub Run Dr., just off the intersection of Stonecroft Rd. and Willard Rd., near the auto dealerships just off of Rte 28 and Rte 50.  For those flying away on vacations of their own, we are very close to Dulles International Airport (IAD), feel free to drop off your pet on the way to the airport and pick up on the way home.

My pet is on daily medication, can he stay at Pender Pet Retreat?

Yes, we accept healthy dogs and cats who must take regular oral medication, just give us detailed instructions and we’ll take care of the rest.  If your pet requires injections, frequent observation, or attention from medical personnel we recommend you choose medical boarding at the 24/7 Pender Veterinary Centre in Fairfax, VA.

Do you have a veterinary clinic at the Pet Retreat?

Yes, we have a full service veterinary clinic that sees regular appointments, oversees the health of boarding guests, and handles any elective procedures our guests may request during their stay.  We find that many of our clients like the option of having dental cleanings performed by our experienced veterinarian and nurses.

I’m moving out of the country, can you help me ship my pet to my new country?

Yes, PenderAIR is the only full service, concierge pet shipping company in the area.  We specialize in all inclusive pet moving packages, handling everything from all labwork and health certificates to country-specific regulatory paperwork, airline tickets, and airport delivery and pickup.  We also offer individual services related to international and domestic air travel.  Check out our website for more information or simply call 703-364-5810 to be connected to one of our experienced Pet Travel Coordinators.
