Elaine's Pet Resorts has been family-owned and operated since 1989 and is proud to be in its third generation of high quality family pet care. In the mid-1980s, Elaine Nestell was in search of a facility that she felt comfortable with leaving her pets when she was away from home. After she did not find perfect facility, she decided to design a resort where best friends could stay – a place she could leave her own pets with confidence.


Elaine's Pet Resorts was founded and designed to be where best friends stay. Pets are our first priority! Here are a few reasons why pet owners choose Elaine's Pet Resorts, and even drive from as far as Bakersfield and Yosemite, for our award-winning pet care.

We're open seven days a week for lodging, daycare, training and grooming. Elaine's offers services to suit every pet owner's needs.

For 25 years, Elaine's Pet Resorts has been where best friends stay. We provide high quality dog boarding services that give pets a comfortable and enjoyable environment at our two Central Valley locations in Fresno, CA and Madera, CA. We are not your typical dog kennel or dog boarding facility. We feature accommodations that can be tailored to make each stay a unique experience. Our individual and family-style rooms allow for privacy, relaxation and comfort. Spread across three acres of land, Elaine's Pet Resorts is securely fenced with daily housekeeping that maintains the highest standard of excellence in cleanliness.

For 25 years, Elaine's Pet Resorts has been where best friends stay. Cats are very independent by nature, but we know they need just as much love as dogs. Our cat boarding accommodations are clean and comfortable, and all our feline guests enjoy regular and loving attention from our caring, experienced and certified staff. To provide them a safe and relaxing experience, our cat boarding guests receive their own special Kitty Condos in a dog-free section of the resort.

Does this scenario sound familiar? Your dog regularly takes YOU for a walk, jumps on visiting friends and family, and just can't stay still - no matter how many times you tell him to stop! This is a story we've heard over and over again. We can help! Lodge & Learn Dog Training at Elaine's Pet Resorts is just what your dog needs to stop these unwanted behaviors and improve communication between you and your pet.

If you're looking for a fun and safe environment for your best friend while you're at work or away for the day, our doggy daycare activities are just what you and your dog needs. At Elaine's Pet Resorts, dogs get an action-packed day filled with play, exercise and rest at both our Fresno and Madera locations. Under the supervision of our trained staff, our dog day care guests receive positive social interaction in either a group or personal play that will leave your dog tuckered out at the end of the day!

There's nothing better than coming home to a fresh and clean doggy! Elaine's Pet Resorts provides spa services that will make your pet sparkle. We offer all the luxuries you expect from a human spa in both Fresno and Madera. Whether your pup needs a clean up after a day of fun at our invigorating daycare, or just some extra TLC, your pet is guaranteed to look amazing after a luxurious day at Elaine's.

We'll make your pet look fabulous with one of our many services:

  • Premium bathing services
  • Nail trimming or filing
  • Ear cleaning
  • Brush-outs
  • Medicated baths
  • Sanitary trims

Each of our landscaped resorts features two doggy water parks with beach front entry pools surrounded by all-weather artificial turf to allow every dog the chance to run, splash and play year-round. Our focus is entirely on the care of your furry friends. While they stay at Elaine's Pet Resorts, your pet will make new friends, learn new social skills, get plenty of exercise, and leave with an enriched spirit- happy, stimulated, and refreshed. Visit us today at our locations in Fresno, CA and Madera, CA and take a tour. We'd love to show you around.
