In 2004, we started as Driftwood Kennels. In 2016, we became DRIFTWOOD BOARDING & WELLNESS to reflect our shift in our approach to animal care under new ownership. In November of 2017, DRIFTWOOD VET officially opened to serve as a local veterinary clinic for small animals.

We provide compassionate, affordable care that is insanely convenient, starting with sudden service and ending with delighted clients.

Located just a mile north of city limits near the Highlands and Fallbrook neighborhoods in NW Lincoln, we are just a few short minutes from the airport and downtown Lincoln, Nebraska, Our facility is situated on 20 scenic acres of rolling native grassland, with private hiking trails carved for our special guests to explore.
