High Sierra Animal Rescue


At High Sierra Animal Rescue we strive to provide your dog with the love and care they are used to at home. When you have to travel and it isn’t possible to leave your dogs in the comfort of their own home, board them with us and rest assured they are cared for with compassion, love, and respect. 


Our state-of-the-art facility was designed to ensure your pets’ comfort and safety.

- Rescue and boarding kennels are separated physically and maintained by separate ventilation systems.

- Climate controlled indoor runs and kennels accommodate small or large dogs.

- Large fenced outdoor yards for play/exercise year-round.

- Automatic fresh water dispensers.

- Temperature controlled kennel floors.

- Soft music during the day to provide a calming atmosphere.

It is the goal of our staff to fully provide for the needs of every animal we shelter with compassion and competency. We work diligently to ensure the health, comfort and safety of the animals entrusted to our care by providing for them physically and emotionally – and by maintaining the highest standards of sanitation and sheltering.

We provide comfortable doggie cots, unless your pet has a special blanket. We provide exercise/playtime four to five (4-5) times a day. Pet behavior is carefully monitored for depression, aggression, lethargy and loss of appetite to ensure the comfort of our guests.
