I recently had to place two cats at this terrible place and I am not a happy camper, maybe if I would have went camping my cats would be happier because they would have went with. I made the first call and I was so impressed that I told my husband too bad we are not animals, boy we would have it made. I went to meet with Mr. Liar himself and of course I went when he was suppose to be remoldeling the smelly place and of course since I have cats I did not get to do the 4 hur reveiw or what ever you call it. I did supply the food, litter and of course I did not know I should have supplied the free flea dip, because my cats are so infested wtih fleasthat I feel so sorry for them they have never had fleas and yes I can say this and back it up I have indoor pershin cats who by the way are mmy two kids, they even think they are peoples. The point I am making DONOT TAKE YOUR ANIMALS TO THIS PLACE INSTEAD LETS TRY TO CLOSE HIM DOWN HOW CAN THE SPCA LET THIS MAN HAVE HIS PLACE IT IS NOT FIT FOR A FLEA MY ABILL WAS SO HIGH THAT I COULD NOT UNDERSTAND HOW THIS MAN COULD SHAPE HIS MOUTH TO TELL ME HOW MUCH I OWED HIM, I WAS QUOTED ONE PRICE WENT TO PICK MY CATS UP AND ALMOST LOST THEM TO HIM BECAUSE HE SAID HE TOLD ME HOW MUCH IT WOULD COST. MR. JOE YOU ARE A ;LIAR AND I AM GOING TO MAKE SURE YOUR DOORS ARE CLOSED FOR GOOD BUDDY YOU LIVE IN THE FILT YOU EXPECT ANIMALS TO LIVE IN YOU WORTHLESS PEICE OF MAN.

I highly recommend this facility. It is the only boarding facility in Fresno that allows the dogs to run around free and not spend their entire day locked up in a kennel. I took my dogs there for 2 years and had absolutely no problems. They were always excited when I dropped them off and were well exercised when I picked them up. I had a Manchester Terrier with separation anxiety and Joe took special care of him during my frequent out of town trips.

I am not sure why some patrons gave this facility such a low rating - I have been to fancier places that took crap care of my dogs and they HATED the experience. This is not a fancy place by any means, but the level of care makes if the best place to take your dog if you have to leave them behind.

I currently drop my dogs off at a friends house when I go out of town, but if I get in a jam will definitely take them back to Four Paws!

4 Paws Hilton in Fresno CA has their own "dog whisperer" in the owner Joe Ortega! It's my 'kids' home away from home. Fantastic boarding and play-date center for animals.

There is a lot said about bullying on the internet with kids....well, where do you think they learn it??? It seems people who are upset move to action more quickly than people who are happy, that is the only reason I can see for such slanderous comments.

My dog is the one who had to have stitches and Joe paid for the care out of his own pocket. The two dogs in question were both puppies and we know how little kids are. I have no issue with what happened and have taken Tucson back several times since then.

I've been taking my pets to 4Paws for years. The first time was when I had to relocate here after my son's wife was killed. I had no place to stay and my rottie was my baby, the thought of leaving him for the first time was painful and it was for several weeks, not just a weekend. He lived with Joe until I knew I would be relocating to Fresno and could find a place to live. I visited frequently and was impressed with how well all the dogs got alone and with how much they all loved Joe. You'd have thought they were all his and had been trained for years. A simple whistle and they all would quiet down, it was amazing to me since it took months of training for me to have obedient pets.

Every time I take my animals, they know when I turn on Clovis where they are going and get soooooooooooo excited and happy. They bound out of the car and greet Joe with kisses and obvious excitement.

If you want your animals to have freedom and love while you are away, you couldn't choose a better place. He has over 4000 customers, don't let a few bullying adults keep you from checking this place out....and yes, it is a resort for pets, not people. It isn't a sterile and cold environment. One write said a bit 'rough around the edges'....but when you think of the hundreds of dogs living and loving the place you understand.

I wouldn't take my 'family' members anywhere else.

THIS FOUR PAW HILTON IS THE WORST DOGGIE CARE EVER.. WOULD NEVER TAKE MY DOG THERE AGAIN NOR RECOMMEND ANYONE TO LEAVE THERE DOG. I LEFT MY GERMAN SHEPARD FOR 5 DAYS. WHEN WE PICKED HIM UP JOE HAD TOLD US THERE WAS A PROBLEM WITH OUR DOG SCRATCHING ANOTHER DOG. OTHER DOG HAD TO HAVE STICHES. WHEN WE ASKED TO SEE THE DOG HE SAID IT WASNT THERE. HE TOLD US THAT IT COST HIM 150.00 FOR STICHES. AFTER WE GOT HOME OUR DOG WAS ACTING FUNNY AND WHINNING ALL DAY. I THEN RECONIZED THAT HIS FACE WAS STARTING TO SWELL AN HAD SCRATCHES ON HIS FACE. THE INSIDE OF HIS MOUTH WAS TORE. HIS BACK TEETH WERE PULLED AND HANGIN FROM HIS GUMS.. AS IF ANOTHER DOG MAY HAVE BIT HIM.. NOT SURE EXCACTLY WAT HAPPENED BUT JOE IS A LIER AND WILL NEVER TAKE MY DOG THERE AGAIN.. IT ALSO SMELLS HORRIBLE AND ISNT VERY SANITIZED. FOR 20.00 A NIGHT ... FOR 23.00 DOLLARS YOU CAN GO TO PET SMART AND THERES SOMEONE ALWAYS On SIGHT...

Horrible! Sounded great over the phone. Left a Jack Russel Terrier for five days, he lost weight smelled awful and as soon as we arrived home gave him food and he ate and drank like he had been left without food and water for days. He is now very afraid as if he was abused during his stay and I just hope he will recover! I feel so guilty for leaving him at this Four Paws Hellton.

We cannot believe that people would disparage Joe or his kennels. We found the kennels to be excellent in every way. Our puppy even returned home with nicely manicured feet!
We have made two more bookings, as we could not be happier. We definitely recommend the Four Paws.

I have to disagree with the previous reviewers. I tried other boarding kennels in Fresno and had bad experiences. My dog is a high energy dog who was traumatized by being locked in little cages with only a short walk everyday. One of the most expensive places actually forgot to schedule her walks for a week and lost all her toys. The poor thing was a wreck when I picked her up.

I had to go out of the country to work for six weeks and was desperate to figure out where to board her. Finally after talking to Joe at Four Paws, we did a test run (for free) to see how she would handle their place. She sooo happy when I picked her up. I left her for six weeks with no problem at all.

I even got my second dog from Four Paws. When I returned from my long trip, they told me my dog had met a special friend. Someone had dumped a stray off in their front cage, and rather than deposit the dog at the SPCA, they were trying to find a home for her. Four Paws kept taking care of the new dog for another week (again, for free) while I negotiated a second dog with my landlord.

Now, the place is not typical. It is a little rough around the edges and not a fancy boutique kennel. When you enter, you will see dogs in the office, dogs inside, dogs out in the pen. They group dogs together by temperament. I raised an eyebrow when I first looked at the place, but they do care for the dogs well. And unlike other more expensive places in Fresno, they don't just shove them in cages.

He feeds each dog separately so no one gets jealous, and has been good when I have special feeding requests. As far as heat goes, I have been in the kennel on hot days, and it was a good temperature in there. He will only take new dogs early in the morning to allow them to be slowly introduced to the regulars. He also requires a half day (usually for free) before any overnight boarding so he can check the socialization skills of the dog.

As far as I'm concerned, everyone in the place can have their shirts off (see comment below). They take very good care of my puppies and that is what matters.

Highly recommend! The owner and employees are down to earth, friendly and flexible. We needed boarding for our Border Collie, who is a nervous nellie, while our home was being built out of town. Employees reported to us he was a leader! One time we could only pick up Onyx at a off schedule time, we were given an exception due to our circumstances. We wish this place was in our new hometown!!

Pros: Open air! Its all about the dog! Wonderful owner/staff!

Cons: None

My pit, pit mix, and chow mix love this place. Plenty of room to run and play. It is not an air conditioned, sterile environment, and no caged animals. Very much a dog oriented place. I have never been in a kennel/boarding environment that was this calm and quiet.

Pros: Great place where dogs can be dogs.

Cons: Not the best part of town and on a very busy 4 lane road.

My dogs love this place. I have left them there 4 times and they can't wait to get in there and play. I have never had a problem with them.
As far as it being the"ghetto" the immediate block could use a little paint but if you travel just a little farther south by 2 blocks the neighborhood is very nice.

Describing this place as the Four Paws Motel Six would be too generous. On the phone this place sounded great---no cages, bring your own food, need time for socializing before the overnight stay, good pricing. The place smelled worse than the pound. It was hot, loud, and dirty. I wouldn't leave a biting stray dog there. It was run by two men, one of whom had his shirt off, I'm guessing due to the heat. The dogs are left unsupervised at night in the "yard" which was essentially a dirt lot surrounded by a chain link fence. The owners live in the house next door and said they can hear if the dogs need to be checked on. I was very sad for the dogs that were there. I will be calling to report the conditions to the authorities. I didn't know places like this even existed in town.

Their "air conditioned" kennels were 90 degrees. Not enough water provided. They took horrific care of my dog. If I can deture one person from this god forsaken place is all I hope for.

This boarder is awful!!!!! They say air condition all the time, ( it was 90 degrees (w/ their air on) My Dog was not provided adiquite water. My dog loves all other dogs and in all 3 years of his life never been aggressive, they said he bit 2 other dogs, NO WAY. They lied and said he was foaming @ the mouth the whole time, he was slightly drooling when I left cuz he wanted to play W/ the other dogs. They said 4 hours later I had to pick him up because he had diaria. Which he only had because he was dehydrated from their lack of care. THIS PLACE IS IN THE GETTO AND IT IS AWFUL, AWFUL, AWFUL.
I'm sooooo glad I did not leave my baby their for more time.
