When will Fenway Bark open?

Fenway Bark Stay.Play.Heal. has received many, many inquiries about when we anticipate opening our doors for business. We are delighted and humbled by the interest in patronizing our business and we will take great delight in meeting and exceeding your expectations!

Where we can't meet your expectations right now is giving you a predictable and dependable opening date. Now that both the business and the off street parking lot have been unanimously approved by the Boston Zoning Board of Appeals, there are a number of steps that need to be taken by the City to issue the actual permits. The speed at which that happens is not within the control of Fenway Bark. To that end, we are reserving publishing an opening date until we have more information from the City.

We will continue to post milestone information as it becomes available and as we start crossing the last few hurdles in what has been the equivalent of a zoning Iron Man marathon. We hope to be open for the back half of the summer. Keep your fingers crossed!! Thanks for the support!!

Fenway Bark Stay.Play.Heal. wins off street parking zoning appeal in a 7-0 ZBA ruling!

Fenway Bark is delighted to share with you that the Zoning Board of Appeals has unanimously approved our zoning appeal for off street parking in front of our building at 553 E. First Street, South Boston. Now that the zoning board has unanimously approved both the change of use to a dog hotel and the parking for our patrons and employees, we can begin the process of moving forward and getting this business open and ready for our valued clients!

Thank you to the literally thousands of people who have sent messages of
support, helped get the word out, and were the voice of reason in South
Boston. We have begun to take reservations for daycare through those
who have called us proactively and we are approximately 1/2 full for
daycare and every dog is from Southie! Please share this site with your
dog loving friends in the Boston area and New England. Thanks for
helping a gal seek out a dream in a difficult economy!
