We have an
extremely high volume of emails, calls and texts daily and try to make our website
as informative as possible to help with this volume.
Please also considering texting brief questions that are not listed above to April's personal cell phone at 208-899-7487 . Please choose ONE means of communication, it is extremely time consuming
as well as frustrating to respond to the same question via text, email and/or phone call before we realize they are all from
one person :) .
Do NOT call or text outside of normal business days/hours.
Scotch Pines no longer offers boarding. Please contact your vet for recommendations on boarding facilities.
If you are checking registration confirmation, please note
on the registration form that notifications for class are not emailed until at least one week prior to class, first
check your spam mail. Thank you for your understanding!
