As of November 1st, 2017
The Pet Brigade will require all dogs to have the canine influenza vaccine.

Why is this change happening?

Hi Everyone!

There have been confirmed cases of the dog flu in Washington State.  We want to ensure that every dog that stays at The Pet Ponderosa Resort & Spa’s is safe.

As of November 1st, 2017, Pet Ponderosa will require all dogs to have the Canine Influenza vaccine. Please be aware that the initial vaccine is given in a series of 2 shots. The second shot is given 2 weeks after the first one.

You will need to have completed the series to receive any services. Just a side note on all vaccines; please make sure you are updating your vaccines at least 2 weeks before services so that your pet has time to build immunity.

We would like to thank all of our loyal customers for their patience and cooperation in this matter. We have your pet’s best interests at heart. Please feel free to contact us directly @ 253.847.7763 if you have any questions or concerns.

Thank you,

Pet Ponderosa

Opened in 2008 we are the only “privately owned boarding facility” on a military post in the U.S.

The Pet Brigade worked with JB Lewis-McChord personnel to develop this kennel so that military families, retirees, and civilians with JBLM access would have the finest accommodations for their pets, paired with convenience of location.
