Greenbelt Kennels
Where your pet stays, and plays, with family.

About Us


Our goal is to provide quality pet care services, including boarding, daycare and grooming, to the Des Moines area and surrounding communities.


 

For the canine members of your family, the boarding facility offers indoor-outdoor climate-controlled runs of various sizes.  If Rover or Spot is the couch potato type, we can provide them with a cozy and comfy spot to kick back and watch the world go by.  If King or Princess prefer to spend the day romping and chasing butterflies, we have outdoor runs and a backyard play area that encourage the burning of canine calories.  And Luna and Leise can share the same run while they are here on vacation, just like they would at home.

 

For the comfort of your feline, we offer spacious but contained living, so that your favorite royal companion can be involved with the goings-on and feel involved without worrying about mingling with the neighbors.
