For "all" Boarding / Day Care information visit:  About Maranatha.

Our hours on the weekends do change in the Winter vs. Summer.  We would hate to have you make a trip and not have us be open.  Please take a look at season changes.

We hope you enjoy going though our web site.  Our site has lots of photos for your viewing pleasure and as a means to enable you to obtain a good idea about the services we provide and who we are in relation to our kennel services; especially with our "Day Care" program.
