Individual care for dogs and cats


You and your pets will get a warm welcome at Tinto Kennels.


Why choose Tinto?

I love animals, so will ensure the highest welfare standards for your pet. The proceeds from the kennels go towards running my animal rescue centre.

Your pet's home from home

Convenient location

Within easy reach of Edinburgh, Lanarkshire and the Borders, Tinto Kennels is a premium boarding kennel and cattery set in peaceful countryside just outside Biggar. I run the Kennels personally, and for more than 22 years I have been complementing the Kennels with a busy and successful animal rescue operation funded largely by the boarding income.

Exceptional levels of care

With a limited number of spaces in the Kennels, I guarantee individual attention to every pet placed in my care. All boarders have regular exercise and playtimes, and all special needs and diets are meticulously cared for. I have built up a dedicated list of regular customers who appreciate the exceptional level of care I give to their pets, and who enjoy the lively ambience of the Kennels and the varied assortment of rescue animals normally in residence.

Competitive pricing

The Kennels are run to the highest professional standards, and competitively priced. While advance booking is recommended, vacancies are sometimes available at short notice. If you want the best pet care while on holiday, call me on 01899 308 667 to discuss your needs. I’m usually outside with the animals so may not be there to take your call, but if you leave a message I will call you back.
