High-Quality Pet Services for Your Furry Friends

We combine quality and variety at Hilltop Kennels in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. By continually adding quality offerings to our pet service portfolio, we succeed in enabling customer delight.

Our services continue evolving as we receive valuable feedback from our customers. Our staff is made up of inspired professionals who are always eager to find imaginative ways of making the experience truly worthwhile for you and your pets.

Think of our pet boarding facility as a place where you can always feel reassured about your pets being well taken care of and that all their needs are efficiently given proper attention.

Cat Boarding

Let your cat stay in climate-controlled boarding rooms isolated from the main dog boarding wings. The cat area is in a bright, airy setting where your pets receive personalized care and attention while with us.

Cat Boarding Rates

1 Cat - $25 a Day
2 Cats Boarding in the Same Pen - $40 a Day

It’s all right to bring home toys or items if it comforts your feline friend.

Dog Boarding

1 Dog – $33 per Day
2 Dogs in one pen – $62 per Day

For every boarder, Hilltop Kennels has private, climate-controlled indoor and outdoor runs that are 20 feet long.

You are welcome to bring blankets, small beds, toys and treats for your dog.

Add-on playtime sessions with a staff member are available for boarding stays for $6. This includes a one-on-one play session within our security fence outdoors.

Exercise sessions are also available for $12, including a 10-minute walk along the trail around our pond.


Pets requiring medication during their stay will be administered according to your directions. For this particular service, fees may apply.

Our Doggy Daycare Facility

Let your dog enjoy supervised play with other dogs in our spacious indoor/outdoor climate-controlled facility. Because we’ve installed a new fresh air exchanger, dogs playing indoors enjoy fresh air from outside.

Add to this our new K-9 grass, where dogs will surely enjoy playing on grass 365 days a year. Depending on temperament and energy levels, dogs are placed in play areas designed specifically for them. We assess all pet dogs beforehand to determine this.

Meet and greets are conducted Monday to Thursday, and these sessions take 3 hours. Pet owners need not pay any amount for the 3 hour meet and greets. Dogs may stay the whole day after meet and greet. Half day rates apply after 3 hours.

All dogs must be spayed/neutered and must be up-to-date on all shots. Dogs that are unable to get along with other dogs may be placed in isolation until pickup time. We monitor them through video in play areas and isolation pens.

All dog owners will be required to sign waivers. Please know that dog owners will be fully responsible for any damage your dog may endure and/or injuries they may inflict on other dogs.

Whether your dog is a good fit for our facility will be at our discretion. Every opportunity is given to dogs before we remove them from our facility.

If your dog is booked for overnight boarding with us, you must pay an additional $18 to have them join the daycare facility each day.
