Penzance Kennels and Cattery has been the leading Dunedin pet boarding facility since the 1960s.

About 10 minutes from the city centre, surrounded by a stunning natural environment, Penzance has all the facilities to keep your wee ones comfortable, safe and stimulated.

The Penzance team takes pride in offering all human and furry customers (16 weeks and older), the very best in service, standards and boarding experience. Staff are meticulous, well trained and above everything else, are passionate animal lovers with much loved pets of their own.

We know how hard it can be to leave your pets behind without feeling guilty. At Penzance you will find a genuinely caring and friendly community, ready to cater for individual needs. You can feel confident and relaxed about taking some time away from your pet, because the owners live on site and the staff have a thorough understanding of each pet after taking time to listen to your instructions and history. We encourage you to view the facilities prior to their stay. To arrange a viewing, call us or send us an email.
