K9 Country Kennels, Kaplica

By Margaret Sheard

Way back in 2012, while contributing articles to the Cyprus Observer, I wrote an article about K9 Country Kennels in Kaplica and this was Open spacessubsequently reproduced on cyprusscene.com in September 2012.  Of course, some of the information is now very much out of date and we are taking the opportunity of publishing a new article with current prices and information.

There is always a need to find a nice place to accommodate pets when going away on holiday or back to the UK for family matters and this needs to be done as well in advance as possible to be assured of availability.

First of all, in case readers are not aware of the location of K9 Country Kennels, I am giving directions below:-Map

From Girne follow the road to Catalkoy and continue until you come to a fork in the road and turn left and follow the road to ESENTEPE.  Keeping on the main road you will go past Esentepe petrol station then past a supermarket called BLUE DREAM,  keep going on the same main road, soon you will arrive at a T junction, turn LEFT towards TATLISU.  At Tatlisu you will come to a small roundabout  with a petrol station on the left, go straight over, about 10 minutes later you will arrive at KAPLICA Hotel on the left, we ask customers to call us from there and we can either come and meet you and you can follow us in or we can come and collect you. The telephone number is 0533 883 3366.

K9 are now happy to be able to add a new service and they can now transport your pet by CARGO to most destinations. They need weight, together with your pet, and size of your travel box to be able to give you a quote.

There is also a new webpage where you can access further information about K9 Country Kennels. www.k9countrykennels.co.uk This is in the course of construction at the moment but there is information available at the moment.

K9 Country Kennels also have a pet cemetery. They will collect from the veterinary clinic and bury your pet at K9.   The cost is 250TL plus 80TL to cover petrol costs.   It is not always possible for people to bury their pets in the garden so this is a lovely way to ensure your pet has a final resting place where you can visit from time to time.

Long view
