Pet Kennel

Free for the furry family members.

Carowinds proudly provides accommodations for your furry family members on a daily basis at our Pet Kennel, located just left of the Main North Gate in front of section #19. This service is provided free of charge and on a first come, first serve basis. You will need to bring your pet’s food and any medication. 

Pets are not allowed inside of Carowinds (except of service animals), but we’re happy to provide them a daily home during your visit in the park. Please note that overnight stays are unavailable. The Pet Kennel is open daily throughout the park’s regular operating season. 

Carowinds associates are not able to provide special care to animals. This includes handling, walking and feeding. Guests must bring their own food and bowls and are welcome to visit and/or walk pets in the designated area during the day of their visit. 

All kennels are fiberglass with metal fronts and come in two sizes. This area is enclosed and climate-controlled with the use of ventilation fans and air conditioning as needed.
