Dog Boarding In Boston

The Dog Kennel Alternative

Dog owners love Rover's Boston dog sitters. 536 owners have reviewed sitters in Boston, giving them an average rating of 4.77/5.


Sit a Dog, Save a Life

Sit a Dog, Save a Life lets you raise money for local dogs-in-need by doing something you do already: asking your neighbors to watch your dog instead of leaving them in a kennel. Many Rover sitters in Boston donate a percentage of their earnings to nonprofits through Sit a Dog, Save a Life. When you book with a sitter who has the Rover Donation Badge on their profile, you're helping dogs in need, right here in Boston.

Broken Tail Rescue

Broken Tail Rescue, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit animal rescue organization run by a group of dedicated volunteers in Massachusetts. They save dogs and cats from euthanasia and find them loving, happy homes. They focus on local animals in the New England area primarily but we also assist southern dogs as well when space permits. If you are looking to adopt a dog or cat, look no further!

Paws New England

Paws New England started in 2006. PAWS now has over 75 volunteers, and a wonderful network of foster homes and rescue partners, including New England shelters, veterinarians and trainers. Based out of Barrington, Rhode Island, Paws New England has become one of the most recognized rescues in the area.

Paws New England started with a simple mission: save lives, one dog at a time. Over the last eight years, more than 7000 dogs from Tennessee, Missouri, our local communities, and various other shelters throughout the country have been put into loving homes.

PawSafe Animal Rescue

PawSafe Animal Rescue exists to provide a better life for adoptable companion animals without homes and to assist in the effort to limit the overpopulation of these animals through a low kill methodology.

PawSafe tirelessly strives for and envisions the day where every adoptable companion animal has a loving, responsible home, where no animal will suffer from abuse, neglect or ignorance. They look forward to a society that no longer views adoptable companion animals as a disposable commodity and people responsibly spay or neuter their animals to put an end to the overpopulation that exists today.

Poodle Rescue of New England

Poodle Rescue of New England is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue and placement of homeless poodles, providing services throughout New England (Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island).

They are an all volunteer organization that works with veterinarians, shelters, families and other rescue organizations to care for and re-home poodles. Before placement, all dogs are spayed or neutered, heartworm tested, vaccinated and groomed.

Survivor Tails Animal Rescue

The Survivor Tails Animal Rescue aims to decrease the euthanasia rates of our high-kill shelter partners by promoting adoption and educating the public on the importance of spaying/neutering and microchipping their pets. We strive to maintain a network of dependable foster families, capable veterinarians, and experienced trainers to ensure preparedness of our rescued pets for healthy, fulfilling lives in their adoptive homes.

Where history meets modern culture, scenic Boston is sure to provide your dog with plenty of opportunity to enjoy the outdoors and city life. Complete with trails, dog parks, and splendid city views, Boston is the destination for the urban dog.

Wander up Beacon Hill or into Kenmore Square and you will find plenty of stores and restaurants that will gladly cater to your precious pooch. If that doesn't suit your fancy, simply take a walk down cobblestone streets, visit the city dog parks, or play in the water along the nearby harbor.

Centrally located to some of the most desired vacation spots, Boston offers the chance for quick weekend getaways to Cape Cod and Gloucester. However, not all Bostonian travel plans readily accommodate dogs. That's where we come in.

Rover.com offers a hub of dog lovers that makes it easy to find Boston dog boarding, dog sitting, and dog walking options for your canine companion. You love your dog. We love your dog, too. How much? We'd love to show you. Stop by our blog and see what we're all about.
