Birds are very skilled in hiding signs of illness. Often times when we first notice signs they are not feeling well, they have actually been sick for a few days. In the wild, birds socialize in flocks and are generally prey species. In order to survive, they must act normally so they do not get cast out of the flock and become more susceptible to predators.
When does the title “Pet Retreat” become more accurate than pet boarding?
When all of the amenities of home and more are available for enjoyment and your dog or cat looks forward to their return. Pender Pet Retreat is your pet’s home away from home.
Your cat or dog is treated as a guest at Pender Pet Retreat. Our location is very close to the south end of Dulles Airport at 4508 Upper Cub Run Drive in Chantilly, VA. No other pet retreat or boarding facility in Fairfax County is situated on 6 wooded acres with multiple fenced areas for exercise and just “great sniffing” (a concrete parking lot is just not dog friendly). We have multiple accommodation choices for our canine guests to best suite all sizes and activity levels while our feline guests have spacious condos with bird watching available if your cat prefers.
Just like Pender Vet Animal Hospital in Fairfax, your pet will have 24 hour oversight and care. We welcome visitors and love to give tours anytime during regular business hours – no need to call ahead!
Pender Veterinary Centre is honored to partner with the Fairfax County Animal Shelter (FCAS) to promote pet adoption in Fairfax County. Pender provides on-site veterinary care to animals brought to the shelter. In addition, Pender is creating the Pender Pals Membership program providing discount services for pet owners adopting through Fairfax County Animal Shelter.
We reward your choice to adopt a pet from FCAS in two big ways:
Your pet’s first post-adoption exam at Pender is free!
Pets adopted from Fairfax County Animal Shelter receive a 7% discount for life on all Pender products and services.
As an added bonus, your newly adopted pet may have already been seen at FCAS by a Pender veterinarian so we are familiar with your pet and have all medical notes on file.
Partnering with Pender is a win-win for you and your pet; you ensure you have a healthy, happy new pet and you save on veterinary care.
