Helga’s Pet Resort Daily Rates

How does our pricing work?

Multiple days: include the day of drop off, but not the day of pick up if your pet is collected before 10am. Except Sundays and Public Holidays when we are closed in the morning.

Day boarding rates up to 24 hours:  If you need short term care for your pet for day care or overnight, we can do that for you. Fitting in with your needs, we have several options.

  • AM drop off, PM pick up on the same day
  • AM drop off, AM pick up on the following day
  • PM drop off, PM pick up on the following day
  • A common question people have is why is daycare the same price as boarding for multiple days? Day boarding includes your tour, check in, set up of kennel, retrieving your pet at the end of the day and cleaning and disinfection of kennel on departure. There are no extra check in charges at Helga’s for only one day. Food can be provided if desired.

Multiple days: include the day of drop off, but not the day of pick up if your pet is collected before 10am.Out of hours fee: open closed
