Best of Burque 2019


Best Place to Board Your Pet

Canine Country Club & Feline Inn


There’s a place in Albuquerque called Canine Country Club & Feline Inn. It’s designed to make sure that your trip away from home is untroubled by the ongoing and glorious lives of your pets, who can spend your away time in a relatively luxurious and nurturing setting, safe and happy, well fed and exercised even as you conquer the world, city by city and client by client. The top-notch care includes onsite veterinarians, specialized playtime, plenty of walkies and food that’s good enough for Fido’s human half. Cats dig the place too; some say it’s the aroma of catnip and reggae music in the air at this funky resort. (August March)
