We want to take the stress out of going away! So we have partnered with a range of vets, groomers and day care centres to take the stress out of going away. No matter where you live, a Vern Ryan’s Pet Resort collection centre is only moments away. We have collection centres spread across the greater Melbourne and Geelong region and run our collection service from Monday to Friday. 

To utilise a collection centre you need to drop your pet off at the centre before 10:00am. When you return from your holiday you will need to pick your pet up from the centre after 3:00pm. If you want your pet to be collected from your home we require you to be there to meet us

The collection charges are priced per family and are $25 each way.

Customers are welcome to drop off their pets and inspect our resort in person as it is located at 3332 Geelong-Bacchus Marsh Rd, Balliang East.

Find the nearest collection centre to you below and book now. If you haven’t decided on your accommodation type – take a look at the dog boarding and cat boarding packages we offer at Vern Ryan’s Pet Resort. 

      Our dog stayed here for 9 days. We were so worried because he had only ever stayed with someone he knows. Since staying at Vern Ryan's pet resort, Bruce is happier and healthier than ever. We want to thank you so much for looking after our best friend and we will be back again one day!

      Great facility, very clean and good outside areas. Leave my dog there and know he is being so well cared for. I don't feel at all guilty leaving him there. It's like he's having the holiday. Run by professional and helpful staff.

      Surpassed my expectations! Lovely caring staff were a breeze with my 'difficult' and over excited naughty pups. Moose and Miso had a blast! See you in December x

      My cat has been attending Vern Ryan's pet resort for probably ten years now. They have always been fantastic, particularly now he is getting older (17) and is on prescription diet and medication and is a fairly anxious and antisocial kitty. I know they pay attention to him because they never pretend he is a cuddly, friendly cat!! (But they still love him!)

      Left my Dogs Bella and Max over the school holidays. Was blown away by the rooms, they were good enough for a person to stay in. The dogs come home and slept for a day as they had obviously been running around mad having a blast. They come home smelling wonderful after their bath and i was really impressed by the customer service.
