Vanessa, Fay & David – Owners and Operators of NBKC


Deciding where to leave your loved pet can be a pretty tough decision. Without a doubt, we know and understand this!

That is why we provide inspections of our picturesque facility so that prospective customers can view our grounds & grill our friendly kennel & cattery staff.

Our ‘purple people’ (aka kennel, or cattery staff), can welcome you at 11 am on any day.

Please call for an appointment on 0458962000.
