our-facilityPet Boarding Facility Features

The safety, security, and comfort of your pet is always our first priority! Your companion deserves the best, and that’s what we have to offer… without compromise. You’ll find all the comforts of home in our fully heated and air conditioned 18,000-square-foot dog and cat boarding facility in Franklin, TN. All of our luxury pet boarding suites are built on raised floors. Unlike the rest of the kennel industry, we reject the notion of pets ever sleeping on cold concrete slabs or surrounded by dangerous chain link fence.

NEW! My Second Home Pet Resort and Spa now has an APP! Search for “My Second Home Mission Ct Tn” in your iPhone or Android device. Save with punch-cards and coupons, and never miss out on specials and events!

Fresh air is provided by a system of charcoal filtration, ultraviolet light and introduction of additional ozone. This controls the air quality, eliminating the airborne pathogens which could lead to disease or cross contamination. Combined with cold plasma processes and dual intake ionization, our air is kept at a state of the art level.

Strict sanitation and housekeeping procedures, including fresh bedding and pre-screening of all pets for shots and general health, ensures a clean and healthy environment. In the unlikely case of an emergency, our wonderful on-call vet is available 24/7. We also have constant video monitoring through twenty-two interior and exterior cameras.

Our luxury pet boarding service provides bedding for all of our guests, freshly laundered in our industrial-grade washer and dryer.  Luxurious soundproofed suites, specially made for the size and breed of each guest, promote a relaxing and serene environment for your furry friend.
