About Us

"We have used the Eastway Kennels on a number of occasions and our Molly has been well looked after.  The owner and staff are very friendly and knowledgeable and the kennel is well maintained.  I’ve referred several friends and family members and  everyone has been satisfied with the services.  Molly will be returning to Eastway while we are away and her sister, Sally, will be joining her."

Irene Bilinski

Eastway Kennels is a family-run business in Orleans, Ontario, Canada. We built a brand-new fully air conditioned and heated facility in 1996 to better house and provide for our residents. We focus on the comfort and safety of your pet and provide both basic and premium boarding services, so you can meet your dog's or cat's individual needs. 

We also have on-site grooming and training services to ensure that your pet makes the most of his or her stay. You can drop off your pet (or engage our pick up and delivery service) knowing that they're receiving the best care and attention we can provide. Whether it's grooming, medications, or just some extra play-time, we'll build the service package your pet needs to keep them (and you) happy.
