A 25% discount will be applied for same family pets sharing a single enclosure. This discount is applied to the daily boarding rate not of the first pet, but for each additional pet in that enclosure. We also offer a discount to animals staying for more than 30 days.


To protect the health of all animals in our care, a health check provided by our vet upon arrival at RAK AWC is mandatory and free of charge. If you want the health check to be done in the week before boarding commences, so you can be sure that your pet will be accepted for boarding, we charge a 100dhs  deposit, which will be deducted from the boarding bill.


Check-in: Saturday to Friday, 9am - 12pm and 4pm - 6pm.

All guests must make an appointment with the vet prior to check-in to have a free health check. This is to ensure that they are completely healthy before they begin their stay. To give our guests the best opportunity to settle into their holiday accommodation we would recommend that they arrive as early in the day as possible.

Departure: Saturday to Friday, 9am - 12pm and 4pm - 6pm.

Public Holidays – No arrival or departure


All dogs and cats must receive a dose of Frontline upon arrival at RAK AWC for any boarding period exceeding twelve hours. Charges per dose range from 60 dhs for dogs and 50 dhs for cats - price depends on the weight of the animal.


A quick call or e-mail will reserve a place for your pet. A provisional booking will only be held for 7 days, until a booking form is completed and returned to us with a 50% deposit paid to confirm.
