Gold Collar Academy & Resort


Jones Bridge Animal Hospital's Gold Collar Academy and Resort is a state-of-the-art lodging facility where dogs are provided with suite-style lodging rooms, and cats have their own cozy space.

Our facility has an atmosphere of being a home away from home with cots and blankets, fresh water, and meal times that model how owners feed at home. Pets can also participate in our optional TLC package that includes playtime with other lodging dogs and staff members. Cats enjoy time in our spacious catio, boasting a multi-level cat tree and a large window to the outside world. Pets also enjoy classical music during their stay with us, helping to promote a calm environment. As always, every pet gets personal loving care.

All the lodging rooms at Jones Bridge Animal Hospital are temperature controlled, disinfected twice daily, and provide easy interaction with staff members for each lodging pet. It is our goal to keep the environment as peaceful as possible. Although dogs communicate through barking, they are rewarded with praise when resting calmly or being quiet.

We feed our canine guests Royal Canin Gastro Intestinal Low Fat, which is an easy-to-digest food to ensure that there is no stomach upset resulting from abruptly changing your pet's diet. Feline guests enjoy Science Diet Sensitive Stomach brand cat food. If you feel more comfortable, you may bring your pet's current diet from home. The staff at Jones Bridge Animal Hospital asks that you pre-measure each meal in individual bags for consistency in your pet's diet.

Due to the potential for loss or destruction, we do not accept toys from home while lodging. We have many toys available for your pets to play with while staying with us!

All lodging dogs are required to have current Distemper, Rabies, Kennel Cough, and Canine Influenza vaccines, as well as an up-to-date fecal exam. All cats are required to be current on Distemper and Rabies, as well as an up-to-date fecal exam. If you are not a current client, printed records must be provided beforehand or at the time of lodging. An exam and vaccines can also be scheduled to be administered by our veterinarians while staying with us.
