Pet Friendly RCI Resorts in Canada

Timeshare resorts that accept pets in Canada

The following is a list of RCI-affiliated resorts within Canada that permit domesticated animals i.e. dogs, cats, and birds. This list is subject to change, and you should always call the resort prior to making reservations to confirm their pet policy. Be aware that each resort’s policy is unique.  Common differences between resorts include pet deposits, restrictions regarding the pet’s weight and/or breed, and whether or not the animal can be unattended in your room.  Most resorts allowing pets do have kennels nearby, and you should contact them at least 3 months in advance of your stay to secure a place for your pet.  Always be sure to bring all of your pet’s pets papers, vaccine information, medications, and tags with vacation contact information.  For more information on successful vacations with your pet read – Traveling with Your Pet? and Flying with Your Dog – Tips for Taking Dogs on Airplanes
