Owned and operated by Reini Strasser, we have over 25 years of combined experience working with animals.

We got into this business for the love of animals. We provide the genuine care and affection that only true animal lovers can give, leaving you with complete peace of mind that your furry friend is being well looked after.

At Yarrambat Kennels & Cattery, we have an extensive history of providing 5-star cat and dog boarding.

We pride ourselves on being a sustainable, environmentally conscious company. We have a 5-kilowatt solar system in place to help keep our carbon emissions to a minimum. We reuse all the water used for washdowns to water the dog runs, and we have a large roof collection system to reuse our rainwater to keep our business as green as possible.

But above all, our focus is providing love and care to the animals that stay with us. With Yarrambat Kennels, you can have the ultimate peace of mind that your pet is in good hands and will enjoy a home away from home.
