So the holiday travel plans are set, but you don't have a neighbor who'll come over and feed Fido? Maybe it won't be necessary. Orange County is home to several "pet hotels," including some that will provide valet service so you can be spared the ordeal of dropping off the furry loved ones. The kennels operate normally on a first-come, first-served basis. Most welcome customers to peruse their facilities and some ask that a pet's favorite toy, blanket, rug or doll be included to make a stay less lonely.
