"Hello: I picked up Freya this morning after needing to go to Melbourne for a family event. From booking till now, service was excellent with Freya being collected from home on Friday morning, to me collecting her today. She had been groomed, looks like the little princess she is. Can highly recommend these kennels and service that they offer. Thank you."
"This is an amazing place and the people look after the animals so well. It’s also the fist cattery out of 6 that I have taken my cat to that he didn’t come back smelling of pee, either by other cats squirting him or he slept in his own because his time was so crappy. When I get my beloved cat back I’m so happy that he’s had such a great time, makes me happy to bring him back time and time again knowing he’s going to have the best few day-weeks possible without me. It may seem a little pricy but it’s totally worth it, they even brush them and spend time with them, which my cat loves."

"To all the staff, Thank you so much for the beautiful photos you sent after Barney passed away; they are the best we have of him. Little monkey used to turn his back to the camera and look over his shoulder as if to say "not today". We miss him so much and we would like to say a very big thank you to you all for all the times he came to you and your care, we knew he was happy with you because he always got so excited when we approached the kennels and we never had any doubts about leaving him with you because of his response. Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts for over 12 years of excellent care. Best wishes from Linda and John Hillier (and Barney) P.S Can we visit sometime to see you all?"

"Dear all, many, many thanks for your wonderful care of our old schnauzer Lucy. She has come home in a happy, healthy and beautifully clean state. We haven't holidayed in 5 years because of our previous bad experiences with boarding kennels, you guys are the best! Many thanks again & see you at Christmas."

"After having a previous bad experience at another kennel we were very reluctant to leave our dogs anywhere. A friend recommended Penfield Kennels and we are so grateful they did. On our first visit we were met with friendly, smiling faces which put us at ease straight away. Both our dogs were comfortable around the workers and were happy to leave us. Upon picking our dogs up, they had been washed and were very happy. We travel over an hour to take our dogs here and won’t stop. Highly, highly recommend this wonderful place!"
"Thank you all for the care you gave her and the support and reassurance you gave me over the years. It has been much appreciated."

"Really, this is a thank you to all of you, Chris, Jim, Carol 1, Carol 2 and Skye. You have all been wonderful carers for our darling Sargi and we thank you sincerely. It has been good to see you regularly and get to know you a bit. Not sure what we are doing re a new dog but hope to see you again in the not to distant future. Carol 1, you will have to train another dog to hump your leg, no more "Boyfriend" we are devastated but will move on eventually. Many thanks again, Brenda and John. P.S. Bet it's a bit quieter there now!"
Brenda & John Barei
"Thank you for looking after me so well during the year when Ian and Wayne went on holidays, I really look forward to a holiday of my own when I get to play with you and all the other dogs, but I don't tell "you know who" all the details. I look forward to my next R&R next year and coming to see you again. Love, Remy."
Ian & Wayne Whyte
"Thank you very much for looking after Rex and making him feel at home. I was very worried about him, thankfully there was no need for it. He is still the same playful "big kid" he ever was. Following commands to the last letter or suffering from selective hearing when it suits him. Thanks again for taking such good care of him."

"The Penfield Kennels and Cattery is a home away from home for our dogs, run by Chris and Jim and assisted by a team of wonderful caring girls we always know our dog is safe, happy and well looked after. The kennels are kept clean, not smelly like some other kennels we have used over the years, and the fees are extremely reasonable. We have tried many kennels over the last 30 years, and even though we have to travel nearly 20 kilometres to get there we reckon Penfield Kennels is the tops and well worth the effort to get there. It's nice to know your loved pet is safe and happy."
Ron & Yensi Barnes
"Penfield kennels has been my dog's holiday place for 8 years. It is great to see his tail and exuberance when he meets the staff, seeing him so happy helps relieve our anxieties about whether we made the right decision. It is difficult when there is a need to find a placement for a much loved pet, we certainly tried a few before a chance advert directed our attention to Penfield Kennels, and as we travel from the mid north to Adelaide it is not far off the main highway to find his accommodation. We also appreciate that there is a vet nurse on site as our dog requires attention to his dietary requirements, with the facilities of dog grooming and staff who have worked at the kennels for sometime, we feel our dog is being cared for."
"To whom it may concern, I am pleased to recommend Penfield Kennels at Virginia. For over 10 years they have cared for our family pooch Jester when she had to be boarded out, "in sickness and in health". She was always pleased to jump out of the car at the kennels to be welcomed by Chris, Jim, Skye and the team. That I take as a true appreciation of the value of the care she received at Penfield Kennels. With grateful thanks for the special service over the years."

"Thank you for delivering home my two darlings yesterday, of course they look wonderful after their baths. It is nice knowing I have somewhere for my two to go when I am away and I appreciate the care and attention they receive from you and your staff Thanks, too, for providing the drop off service which makes it very convenient for me. Many thanks again, Jill."
"George has had multiple visits and there is no place else I would ever take him. George isn't the friendliest dog on the planet and at nearly 60 kg you have to know how to interact with him. The staff have taken the time to get to know his mannerisms and are brilliant with him. I can not recommend them high enough. 5 stars doesn't do them justice. I will be a customer for life."
