Rates & Pet Transport

PET TRANSPORTATION

Because we specialize in long term dog boarding and offer a cage free facility we have customers from all over the USA. When traveling out of the country some families chose to drive to our facility, leave their car here at the farm and fly from Raleigh Durham Airport. We are happy to help you with whatever needs you have.
We can arrange to drop off or pick up. The rate is $15.00 per hour plus gas charges. If one way is longer the 7 hours it requires an overnight stay therefore there are hotel charges.
Many airlines will not fly your pet during the summer months. It’s important to plan ahead and make sure your pet arrives safely. If you are looking to fly your dog to Dancing Creek Farm United Airlines now offers a Safe Pet Transport Service and we are happy to pick up your dog at the Raleigh Durham Airport.

For longer trips (over 10 hours) we charge a flat day rate of 150.00 for the driver overnight. Gas is then added, plus tolls and hotel.

We often meet people halfway. Our most popular meeting places and cost are:

Culpepper VA – 150.00

Charlotte NC – 150.00

DC Metro Area – 225.00 ( traffic! Culpepper VA is only an hour if you can meet!)

Nashville TN – 550.00 (Includes driving, gas, hotel)
Here are the rates for United Pet Safe Program. You should always try to fly direct flights.

  • I was so incredibly blessed to find a temporary home for my Ellie. Ellie was with Tamara and her crew at the Farm for 17 months, so yes, this was her home away from home. And these lovely people were her family. They loved and cared for her like she was their own. She grew, matured, played and came back her happy, healthy and sweet self. The healthy, holistic approach worked out so well for her and I never once worried that Ellie wasn't alright. When my plans changed, Tamara worked to accommodate me. When funds were tight she worked with me and said, "Pay when u can." I consider her Ellie's second mom and the Farm her forever home away from home. Can't thank them enuf or recommend them any more highly. If you send your dog there, leave your worries behind. All will be well!

    Dancing Creek Farm is a wonderful place for any dog to stay if you need to be away. Tamara and her staff are such loving, caring, competent, considerate individuals who bend over backwards to ensure all the dogs in their care happy, healthy and secure. We highly recommend placing your loved doggie here – you will not be disappointed. We were overseas for 7 months and had an unexpected situation occur which required us to find new housing options for our dog immediately and Tamara was the answer to a desperate prayer I threw out to the universe. Her home and farm is what I lovingly refer to as a wonderful doggie resort. The facility is beautiful, well-maintained, extremely spacious, and well thought out for dogs to be dogs. Communicating with Tamara was extremely efficient. We knew if she could not answer right away, it was because she was out caring for our dog and would respond as soon as she could. When we went to pick up Nessie, we saw firsthand just how wonderful Dancing Creek Farm is for dogs and the families who love them. Choosing a long or short-term location for your beloved pet is so difficult because we tend to worry so much about our babies… rest assured if you choose Dancing Creek Farm – your dog will have the best possible time away from his/her family. Thank you Tamara for everything you did to make Nessie’s stay as comfortable as possible and for managing her ”needy” mother so I wouldn’t worry so much!
  • We boarded our dog at Dancing Creek for a year. She came back happy, slimmer, and well behaved. I would definitely trust Tamara and team to take care of her again.
