After browsing through the demos and feature lists of pets themes available on the market, we realized that the majority of them are optimized (in terms of available inner pages, widgets or integrated plugins) for businesses that differ from pet hotels in concept and operating principle. These are usually either grooming salons or vet clinics, or large pet care centers providing a whole suite of services (where overnight boarding may or may not be one of them.)
