Pet Friendly - Rolling Hills Casino

I know it seems that I talk about Casinos a lot but I do notice them when I'm traveling - and sometimes stop in to lose some nickels. I was driving from Sacramento to Redding, CA a few months ago and noticed a Casino along the the highway, I think it was I-10. I usually have no time to stop, but I happened to notice a sign that said "Free Pet Boarding" and that piqued my attention. I made a quick stop to check it out.

I found out that they have a separate building where the pets stay - and it is free. The only problem is that they keep them in cages. I guess that is easiest since otherwise they would need your pet's immunization records and I'm sure not everyone carries them - except those that have read my blog!

The woman pointed me in the direction of the pet storage building - I mean pet lodge and I drove around looking for it. I didn't have time to go in but it is nice to know that there is a place where your dog can be safe for a few hours while you have your fun - or your meal.

I have heard that there are many more Casinos that have the same or similar service but this was the first time I actually saw it for myself. Seymour hasn't been in a cage - except his crate - since I rescued him so I'm not sure I'm ready to do that. But I think it is a needed service for pet-owners so it would be worth checking out.


  1. I've never heard of that--that's pretty interesting. I'm sure Seymour would be fine in a "cage", but what would be the point of that? Couldn't a pet just stay in their "cage" in the owner's RV?

  2. Only if there was an electric hook up to keep them cool in the summer - and many people don't travel in RVs so they shouldn't leave their dogs in the car.

  3. It does get pretty hot up there during the summer, and I normally don't even stop because the car would get so hot. Having an air conditioned space -- even if it is a cage -- is a life saver for that hour or so for lunch. The cages are pretty darn clean though!

  4. Thanks for the info - that is good to know.
