About Us

Welcome to the Coronation Kennels & Cattery, near Macksville and Nambucca Heads on the mid-north coast of New South Wales, where your pet can truly enjoy the ‘home away from home’ feeling and be treated and cared for as if it were one of our own family pets.

We understand that leaving your pet for any length of time can be an emotional experience for both you and your pet which is why the owner lives on site to provide the best possible care at all times; right down to each and every pet getting a bedtime hug!

The owner of the Coronation Kennels & Cattery has successfully operated the Lochinvar Pet Motel in the Hunter Valley for over 15 years and has in depth industry knowledge to ensure your pet is properly cared for in a spotlessly clean environment.

Our dedicated staff are passionate about animal welfare and look forward to meeting you and your pet when next they need to be cared for.

For your convenience and to protect you and our staff

We are aiming to minimise the time you spend dropping off your precious pet to just 10 minutes. Our staff will take your pet to their kennel or suite while you finalise the paper work; but you can have someone else with you who can accompany your pet and our staff member while you finalise the paper work. The Coronation Kennels & Cattery is one of the few facilities that welcome you to accompany your pet(s) to their kennel or cattery accommodation but please do this as a ‘kiss and drop’ as at these times we often have many other clients to attend to.

All your details should have been taken at reception before you move to the accommodation area.

We reserve the right to refuse any booking without cause or reason.

Our staff are here to help you and care for your pet - if you have an issue please treat them with courtesy and respect.

For normal boarding (not Daycare or Extended Stays - 30 days or more), please use our online Express Check-in for dogs & cats below.

If you are experiencing difficulties with our online booking system, please call 0456 189 619.

If you are leaving one or more cats with us we will need to board them together in the same suite. If this arrangement is not suitable for your cats for any reason we reserve the right to decline your booking.
