The Range Pet Lodge hopes to create a “home away from home” for Carmel’s dogs and cats.

And unlike most boarding facilities, this new pet hotel will be staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Just opened on Dec. 18, this new facility was started by veterinarians at Companion Animal Medical Center. Their third clinic will open right inside this 14,000 square foot building, situated where the former Lotus Garden restaurant operated at 1045 N. Range Line Rd.

Services include boarding, daycare, grooming and veterinary services.

The facility will hold 103, “dog cottages, dog cabins and feline bungalows.”

Not only will there be plenty of amenities for pets – including 10,000 square feet of outdoor play space with artificial turf designed specifically for dogs – but owners should feel safe leaving their pets there. Hal Bond, owner of The Range Pet Lodge, said the 24/7 supervision is a big draw.

“Pet owners we’ve talked to are interested to find out that we have a trained team member on the premises at all times,” he said. “This allows us to more closely imitate a guest’s regular home routine, where they are taken out for a walk later in the evening. By not making them wait twelve hours overnight, we can help reduce unnecessary stress.”

The Range Pet Lodge is accepting reservations. Visit them online at Call 571-7777 or email
