Tail-Waggin' Reviews

The Critter Cradle is amazing. You can tell they honestly love their jobs and my pets are always excited when we drop them off. The staff is loving and caring. What I love most is they send you pictures about twice a day of your fur babies to let you know their doing well .. I can go on and on about how wonderful they are!

Tanya Walker, Bardstown, KY

We put our two puppies here for the first ever time being away from us. The staff were so friendly and did a great job with our pups. They could tell I was nervous about leaving our pups for the first time and they did everything they could to assure me they would be well taken care of. I definitely recommend board with them!

Jasmine Gowen, Bardstown, KY

Everyone at the Critter Cradle truly loves every pet that walks in their building! They took in my fur baby as if she was their own! I love that you get photos and updates on how your baby is doing. Such a great way to get their energy out while knowing they are still being well taken care of. HIGHLY recommend!!
