* COVID-19 Update * 

As the situation with the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) evolves, our top priority continues to be the health and safety of our clients and our employees. That being said, to ensure we are doing our best to keep you safe, we will be closing our facility as of March 23rd, 2020. No Boarding, Day Care or Grooming services available for a minimum of two (2) weeks. For clients who have their pet at our facility, we will continue to care for them until you are able to pick them up. Furthermore, any clients who have appointments or reservations during our closure will be contacted. 

As of now, we will continue to allow free public use (after 4pm) and private rental of our Off-leash Dog Park. Please make note that we will not be allowing rentals for large groups or gatherings. Payment for rentals can be done over the phone with a credit card, by e-transfer to manager@pinetreepetresort.ca, or by cash to the lock box located beside the entrance to the park. 

We thank you for your cooperation and understanding during this time. We will continue to monitor the situation as it evolves and we will adjust accordingly. If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know. 

Sincerely,                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        The Team at Pinetree Pet Resort
