At Cascade Hospital for Animals, our doggie daycare, The Crate Escape, is the place to be! We give your dog hands-on attention, companionship, healthy exercise and naps! Your pet will improve his/her canine social skills and have the opportunity for healthy, supervised play in a group setting with other dogs of similar temperament and size.

We will send a daily photo to an email or phone number of your choice showing your pet and their friends having fun in our indoor/outdoor play areas.

We offer convenient Daycare Express drop off between 7:30 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. Reservations that are no longer needed must be cancelled with 24-hour notice to avoid a no show fee.

Your Dog's First Day

At The Crate Escape we make the health and safety of our furry friends top priority!

On your dog's first day at The Crate Escape, which is free, your dog participates in a daycare play assessment. We will introduce your pet to other daycare pets to see how they interact. If all goes well, your pet is welcome to play for the rest of the day.
