After careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to close the Kitty Loft. As of January 1st, 2019, we will no longer offer boarding for cats. No new bookings will be taken for December 2018 — if you already have a booking, it will, of course, be honoured. To all our feline friends and their families, thank you for the patronage and support you have given us. We wish you well for the future.


Hy Country Kennels & Pet Resort - Pet Boarding in Vernon

Hy Country Kennels & Pet Resort’s 10-acre pet boarding facility is located just minutes outside of downtown Vernon. Throughout the years, we’ve had a lot of repeat guests come and stay with us. Take a look at what some of our previous guests have said and contact us for inquiries.

Long-Lasting Friend


Hello my name is Bliss, Bliss Scott-Kennedy,Bliss Kennedy because I am Dad's dog too!

Let me tell you about myself. I am the terrifically fit 13 year old “Grande Dame” of Hy Country Kennels & Pet Resort. My Mum and Dad work and I need a really great place to spend my daytime. I had visited Hy Country as a regular boarder but when my Mum asked Russ about me coming for daycare, he said “sure I’ll give it a try”. Now that is all “History”. I have been going for over 8 years and I LOVE IT! I get to see my buddies Max, Miller, Taco, Huey, Chubb, Inca, Bones, Colt, Ryle, Pella, Zoe, Casey, Cricket, Dakota (a Great Dane) and Nikita. We are so fit because we hang-out and play, sleep, we get lots of room to dig, there’s even a play house to climb up into and big huge tires to run around, we even get snacks!

My Mum said that if anything ever happens to them, then I am going to stay at Hy Country with Russ, Trisha and the girls. Now, that is an indication of how much confidence my parents have in Hy Country and the loving care I receive every day.
Hope to see you there soon!

Love Bliss… AKA Kennedy… Scott-Kennedy


Just a note to say thank you for looking after Bo and Bahlou for us, since we moved to Vernon in Jan 02. We always felt at ease that they were in “good hands”.

Good Care While You’re on Vacation

Thank you again for your kind care of Mikey while we took our vacation. He seemed no worse for wear. We were thrilled to see him in such good condition. Thank you.

Clean Pets

I just wanted to thank you and your staff again for the excellent care Taco receives while boarding and in day care. It was marvelous to give a huge hug to a clean dog when I picked him up. Knowing what a challenge he must have presented getting him near soap and water, I really appreciate you going the extra mile with him.

Good Care of Your Pet While You’re Away

Dear Tricia and Russ
Just a wee note to thank you for the excellent care you gave Rica, while I was in Europe. It is very re-assuring to know about your kennel and should the need arise that I have to travel again, without hesitation I would board her with you. With Appreciation.


Thankful Boarders

Thanks for all you do for us

Thanks for your good care throughout the year!

Friendly Staff

Our basset hound Barkley is a full time attendee at Hy Country's Doggy Daycare. He knows where we're going as soon as we start up the hill and he usually paces back and forth in the car just waiting to run out and see his buddies. I know he's being well taken care of by the Hy Country staff, who are always friendly and very accommodating. Hy Country Kennels is definitely a home-away-from home for Barkley. Thanks so much for all the work you do!

Committed and Loving

Thank you so much for taking such great care of Sheeba through the year. It’s very nice to have a great place to bring Sheeba while we are away. We never worry about her at all. Your commitment & love towards all the animals is obvious and very inspiring. Thank you

Happy Visitors

Dear Russ & Tricia
Thanks for taking such great care of our dogs. It made us feel good that they were being looked after by you while we were relocating back east. By the way they looked great when we picked them up from the airport. We’re not so sure that they’re even happy to see us. The best of luck to you in your business and again thanks so very much.

Reasonably Priced & Trustworthy

Dear Russ & Tricia
Just a note to say thank you for the wonderful care our Sheltie, Yoshi, and our cat, Pussywillow, have received each time we have left them in your care. We moved to the Vernon area last year from Ontario, and needed to find a good kennel which we could trust. Our jobs include time on the road, so we were in search of a facility that offered good care. We thought we might have to try two or three, but know we had been fortunate on the first try when we found Hy Country Kennels. Clean and spacious, reasonably priced and in a wonderful setting it offered everything we were looking for and more: your service of trimming Yoshi’s nails has improved his walking considerably.

We adopted our pets as a pup and kitten when our two youngest children were about 10. Yoshi is 11, Pussywillow is 15. Needless to say, we are the ones who inherited the dog and cat when the kids grew up! One of the things about Hy Country that I have discovered and appreciate so much is that it really is a family affair. Your daughter Morgan told me how she goes and plays with Yoshi. I know he would love that!

When we pick him up, Yoshi is pleased to see us, but he clearly fells at ease with all of you. He always looks great and never a ‘Kennel smell”. Pussy willow enjoys the thoughtful living arrangements, especially the perch provided by the window where she can snooze.

We’re really grateful to you for your easy and friendly way, consistent good service and helpful advice. Many thanks.
