Apple Creek Kennel in Marion, Iowa Welcomes You

Staffed 24 Hours a Day, 7 Days a week for the care and safety of your pet

Apple Creek Kennel is the only Pet Resort in Marion and the only one in the Cedar Rapids area staffed 24 hours a day – 7 days a week – 365 days a year.

Who can love your pets as much as you?

Having cared for and loved their own dogs for over 27 years, and after 10 years of successful dog boarding at their home, Mary & Stan Pfoff knew what they wanted to see in a pet boarding facility. They created Apple Creek Kennel’s new Marion location as a home away from home – a place they would feel comfortable boarding their own pets.

What Our Clients Are Saying About Us

Best place to take your puppy, hands down. I wouldn't trust anyone else to watch my Maggie! The staff is very flexible and friendly. I know they love my Maggie as much as I do!

Megan Dodson

Thor is so excited when we pull into Apple Creek and completely exhausted after a fun day of play. The staff is outstanding and I cannot express how comfortable I fell when boarding him while traveling.

Lorie Brydon

Boone likes going there as much as he likes going home. His tail wag is definitely to the right, meaning he thinks they're family. Thanks for great care.

Angie Miller

The only place my lab will let me take her! They are so flexible and nice and always seem to be able to keep Sadie even if it's short notice! I trust them and i'm not worried when I'm away which is such a relieving feeling. It is also very nice to see the cute pictures sent to my email and posted on their page. I highly recommend Apple Creek daycare and boarding!

Tori Pratt

A clean, friendly environment. The main priority is based on the quality of care that they can provide to the dogs.
