Cascade Kennels is here for your whole family, exotic pets included. We care for a wide variety of exotic pets (i.e. pets other than dogs or cats) including rabbits, rodents, ferrets, small mammals, birds, fish, reptiles and mini pigs. If you have questions regarding the possible boarding of your unique pet, we encourage you to contact us to discuss in detail how we may best serve your pet’s needs.
