Our Story.

Jackson Country Kennel is located in Jackson, Georgia, at the heart of Butts County. It was established in 2007, and has quickly become the premier boarding and bathing facility in the area for both dogs and cats.

The Weeks family, owners and operators of Jackson Country Kennel, have always been animal lovers and are passionate about taking care of animals in need. As a United States Marine Corps Veteran, Mike is proud to now serve the community by providing a safe and comfortable place to board beloved pets. Mike’s daughter, Shannon, is planning to go to vet school in the near future to further her career in caring for animals.

The Weeks are active in the area, and have recently spearheaded a donation drive for a local rescue organization, Butts Mutts. They have also worked with many rescues to provide a temporary home for newly adopted dogs in the process of being transported to their forever homes. Their goal is to give all pets the very best care as they treat them as part of their own family.

Frequently asked questions.

Are reservations required?

Yes. We require boarding reservations to ensure that all of our guests have a place to stay. We tend to book up very quickly, especially on holidays, school breaks, and over the summer, so we encourage clients to make reservations as soon as possible.

We also require appointments for drop-off bathing services.

Are vaccinations required?

Yes. In order to protect your pet, as well as all other guests at the kennel, we will not be able to board or bathe any pet that is not up-to-date on their vaccines. Jackson Country Kennel must have written proof from your veterinarian that your pet is up-to-date on all of their vaccines prior to boarding or bathing.

Dogs must be vaccinated against Rabies, Bordetella, Distemper Parvo, and K9 Flu.

Cats must be vaccinated against Rabies and FVRCP.

Do you have a minimum age requirement for boarding?

Your pet must be at least 4 months (16 weeks) old to board with Jackson Country Kennel.

Most puppies receive their last round of puppy shots around 16 weeks old. In order to board at JCK, puppies need to have finished all of their puppy shots. This minimum age requirement is for your puppy’s own protection. Even though we require every pet that boards with us to be vaccinated, puppies immune systems are not fully developed and they are at a higher risk of being exposed to air-borne viruses and have a harder time fighting them off.

Our check-out time is noon. While you are not required to pick your pet up by noon, if they stay past the check-out time, you will be billed for that day.

Should I bring my pet's food?

We do encourage you to bring your own dog food. Any changes in your pet’s eating habits could lead to an upset stomach. We ask that you bring your pet’s food in a labeled, sealed airtight container or zip-lock bag. We have a refrigerator if your pet has special food that requires refrigeration.

Should I bring my pet's medication?

If your pet requires medication, we ask that you bring the medication in its original prescribed container, with the instructions from the veterinarian. Our trained staff will provide your pet with the medication needed during his or her stay. We do have a refrigerator if the medication requires it.

Should I bring my pet's comfort items?

We encourage our clients to bring anything that would make their pets feel more at home. We do ask that owners label all items that they bring. Please do not bring items, toys, or blankets with sentimental value.
