Adam’s Folly is not a traditional boarding kennel. Guests receive individualized attention, lots and lots of love and spend their time in a comfortable homey environment. Depending on your dog’s personality and size he may spend the night in either a spacious indoor/outdoor run, or in one of the special suites we have for families or our older patrons. We reserve the right to determine where your pet may be most comfortable. We limit the number of guests so call for reservations well in advance. We also request that you call as soon as possible if you need to cancel reservations.
Per NC State Agricultural law, all food must be stored in airtight containers. Therefore, we cannot accept food in ziploc or plastic bags unless it comes in an airtight plastic container with a sealed lid. Also, all medication must come with the original pill bottle with the dosage, name and vet on the label in order for us to administer it. If you put medication in a pill box or ziploc bag, we still need the empty pill bottles to be able to show the inspector. We have bedding here so please do not bring huge beds that we are unable to fit in a washing machine and wash if needed. You may bring smaller beds and blankets if you prefer.

Adam’s Folly is closed for check-in and check-out on these holidays:
Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas Day, & New Year's Eve.
Due to high demand for the Thanksgiving and Christmas Holidays, we have instituted the following policy effective 1/1/2023:
There is a $25 Booking Fee for any days during the week of Thanksgiving or Christmas. It is non refundable (even if you cancel) and does not go towards boarding charges. It is an additional charge just to book the reservation, due to so many people booking these dates "just in case." We will take the payment prior to booking any reservations.
Stays over the holidays must be at least a 3 day minimum stay.
OTHER THINGS WE WANT YOU TO KNOW
Proof of current vaccinations are required. Dogs must have proof of current inoculations for rabies, distemper, parvo and Bordetella (kennel cough).Puppies must have proof of current rabies immunization and other age appropriate inoculations. Your veterinarian can provide you with the necessary verification paperwork. Ask them to fax it to us at 1-910-898-8033. Since vaccinations can take up to 7 days to take effect, we recommend that they be done at least 7 days before you board your pet.
If your dog is on medications we will administer them at no additional cost. Please be sure to label all medications with dosage instructions before arrival.
We serve our guests high-quality, Diamond Chicken and rice flavored dry food topped with Natural Balance canned chicken. If you prefer to bring your dog’s food from home be sure it is packaged in a labeled, airtight container. We provide refrigeration for foods with that requirement.
Healthy snacks including dog biscuits and soft treats are given throughout the day at no additional cost.
We provide all our guests with Kuranda cots and/or quilts.
You are welcome to bring any bedding and toys from home, however we cannot guarantee their return or condition.
INSECT & PARASITE CONTROL
We strive to keep our Adam's Folly Bed & Biscuit flea and tick free.
The perimeter of the facility is sprayed for fleas and ticks. If we see fleas and ticks on your pet we will bathe it and there will be an additional $25 (and up, depending on size of dog) fee charged.
Despite the precautions we are unable to guarantee that your pet will be free of parasites when you check out.
A Walk on The Beach - $25
When boarding your dog with us choose a "Walk on the Beach!" We will take your dog for a one on one 30 minute walk on Oak Island's dog friendly beaches once during his stay. When you're away, let him frolic and play in the sand and the waves to ease the guilt of leaving him behind! Includes transportation to and from Oak Island.
