Heartstrings is located in the beautiful New River Valley in Blacksburg, Virginia.

Our staff and management are dedicated to the loving care of our guests. They will do everything possible to ensure that your pet has a relaxing and enjoyable experience. Our facility was developed after six years of research and multiple visits to other facilities for ideas and functional facts. We provide a new concept for the care and comfort of your extended family members from our private suites to our small canine and cat condos. We strive to eliminate the stress and anxiety often associated with boarding.

We ask our clients to adhere to our posted business hours. Any clients that need to pick up or drop off their pets outside of our regular business hours will incur an additional nights boarding fee. This fee applies whether we know you will be present or not. Our facility closes at 6 PM, and if arrangements have not been made for late pickup, your pet will be bedded down for the night at 6 PM and be provided with house amenities.

Heartstrings will require a Reservation Deposit of 20% for all Boarding appointments made either three (3) or more months in advance or during major holidays and certain   VT events (Winter/Spring Commencement and Breaks).
