Welcome to The Palms Pet Resort & Spa, "The New Standard in Pet Care"  - providing a safe and healthy environment in a state-of-the-art facility for San Antonio and surrounding areas.

Our goal at The Palms is to provide a environment that nurtures both the emotional and physical needs of our guests.  Our facility was specifically designed with this goal in mind; from the 8 separate air conditioning systems with 100% fresh air returns, to the double fenced yards with 8 ft. perimeter fencing, from individual TV’s and webcams, to an in ground pool.  Cats have a 240 gallon fresh water aquarium for interest and calming effect. Each suite area has separate outdoor play yards.  All staff are PCSA certified pet care technicians to provide optimum safety and care.  We strive to be the stress-free option for times when you have to be separated from your four-legged family member.
