Did you know there’s a campus for pets that can serve as an overnight hotel or daycare with fitness areas?

Paw Haven (, located at 1175 State Street, opened in late June and is the perfect place for busy pet people to keep their fuzzy family members happy and engaged. And you can stay connected with them through webcams in the play areas and luxury boarding suites or via the daily report cards they send out for each pet.

Paw Haven’s new dog and cat-friendly 15,000 sq. foot venue includes state-of-the art pet boarding options with memory foam dog beds, and it’s located right off both I-95 and I-91, which also makes it convenient if you are using Tweed Airport or Union Station.

The best part? They offer light grooming too! What more could you want for your four-legged friend?
