I cannot even begin to thank this crew for how much they have saved me this week with my new puppy addition! I was not ready to leave the little guy at home, so upon short notice, they have taken my pup for day boarding during a hectic week with absolutely no fuss about it! He is still very young, so even pup day boarding made me nervous. I appreciate the consciousness taken to care for each individual dog’s needs and not lumping him into a crowd. After day one, Marshall took to this team extremely well and now grabs his leash from me in the lobby and off he goes…he is just as happy on the other side when I come to pick him up. I feel this to be the best outcome when trusting a small business with your furry best friend! I have decided to day board once a week to let him socialize and become more comfortable being away from us for bits of time! Thank you to the Ark team for loving my fluff ball!

Passing through town, she was able to watch our pups for a couple hours last minute so we could go explore. Super friendly and accommodating. Much appreciated!!

We bring our dog here about twice a year for a week each time. They're absolutely the best kennel I have ever been to! I highly recommend this place!

We had a wonderful first experience with Noah's Ark kennel and Cattery. We were preparing for the birth of our second child and trying to find care for both our dog and our first child, and their kind and professional service took the stress out of arranging things for our dog. Noah's Ark was flexible and accommodating, even after we made a mistake with our booking. They took great care of our Coonhound and shared updates with us. We look forward to boarding with them again in the future!

Our dog loves going here! Her tail wags from when we arrive to the time we pick her up. As soon as we get out of the car, she is pulling us towards the front door. The staff is wonderful and always gives us a personalized summary of her visit. This is our #1 recommended kennel!

Lynn and Ellie take phenomenal care of our pets every time we're there! I moved to Chapel Hill during the pandemic, and it was a stressful enough time trying to find someone who was boarding, let alone someone who was able to care of both my cat and dog. Every time the pets come home they are incredibly happy from their stay, and are overjoyed to go back. Lynn and Ellie at Noah's Ark make a point to shower your pets with love and give them the care they need while you are away. I cannot recommend this place enough. Truly, if you are in need of somewhere to board your pets, I can confidently say that Noah's Ark is the place to go for both Kennel AND Cattery!

Thank you for taking care of my little Pepper, an older and sometimes cantankerous gent. I'm grateful for the many walks you took him on and the special attention you showed him during his 6-day stay. It's hard to leave him when I travel, but I felt very reassured that he was safe and happy in your care.

I’ve had the best boarding experiences with Noah’s Ark. Lynn has always been accommodating and loving to my dog and cats. My experience has never felt busy or rushed. I leave my pets feeling they will be cared for and attended to lovingly. My pets have always returned home happy without any adjustment issues. I can’t thank Lynn and her staff enough for making our vacation time worry free knowing our pets are safe and happy.

Great place, Lynn is a professional who obviously loves animals. My dog Nugget loves to go see her. Reasonably priced and great service.

I am surprised by the one star review left by JS not long ago about Noah's Ark, because he implied the renovations had a long way to go and that just is not the situation at all. I have been present for the rebuild since it started and with the exception of the shell of the building, everything else is brand spanking new and totally clean. I'm guessing he confused Noah's Ark kennel with a different one he toured that day. Noah's has the best cat boarding facility that I know because they can opt to go outside and breath fresh air in an outdoor partitioned cage if they want. The dog boarding is also great for the same reason in that the boarding dogs are not confined to indoors like most boarding facilities but rather they can go indoor/outdoor at their own choice when they please.

Took a tour. Still needs lots of work. Even though they are reopened, I would hold off until they get this place up to speed. I'll check back in 6 months.

This is such a nice place. The owner Lynn and staff go above and beyond to care for these animals staying at this facility. Lots of playtime and love. One of the nicest places I've ever been to. Staff is extremely caring and they take great pride in caring for each and every animal that comes through the doors

As a relatively new dog owner I was very anxious about leaving my dog at a kennel while I went of town. To make matters worse, the place we initially had booked her online, had double booked themselves and were actually full. Thankfully, Noah's Ark had space for her, and they will be our first choice from now on! The staff were amazing, especially Ellie, who went out of her way to put my mind at ease by giving me regular updates, including this super cute photo of Nela. Thanks so much Noah's Ark, we'll be back again!

Love the renovations! Colorful, cozy, and clean. Noah's Ark has always had loving caretakers and so happy you are open again! Can't beat the loving attention your fur babies will get from Lynn and her team.

I have kept several generations of my dogs at Lynn's kennel and it is the best around I drive 30 minutes and it's well worth the time. the new facility has been designed for the care comfort and safety of its borders. Lynn's love for animals is evident by the care and attention given to all of her guests.The facility is cheerful clean and odor-free. If you read a negative review they probably mistook it for another kennel or had never been to the facility. Medical needs are addressed by Lynn promptly and she is very capable of administering any needs. My dogs are always clean and calm when I return. Her care is rare; almost unequalled. I can't say enough good things about this offacility. And Lynn is always tolerant my neurotic phone calls for progress reports. Claire and for Evil Betty, Nigel and Sweetie Pea

Our dog stayed at Noah’s Ark for 6 days and came back well taken care of. He wasn’t down or stressed when we got home. Very grateful for the team here that took our babe in.
