The Sandpiper Pet Hotel in Malibu has come under the scrutiny of the Los Angeles County Department of Animal Care and Control but has addressed most of the violations found, a county official told Patch. 

Officers first inspected the facility at 3946 Puerco Canyon Road on Jan. 22, said Betsey Webster, the department’s chief deputy director.

“Officers noted that all of the animals at the facility were in good health and well cared for, with access to sufficient food and clean drinking water,” she said.

However, officers did write up the owner for not having a fire evacuation plan and “noted deficiencies in the kennel and grooming facilities,” Webster said. She would not say what those were.

Officers returned Feb. 6 and found most of the violations corrected, including those associated with the needed fire evacuation plan, Webster said.

“A 30-day extension has been granted to the proprietor of the Sandpiper to correct remaining outstanding violations. [Animal Care and Control] will conduct a final inspection of the facility of March 6,” she said.
