I never aspired to own a business. But I’ve always had a love for animals. In 2005, when I heard a dog daycare was for sale, I was sold. No question. Where do I sign? I ended up buying a very small business. We averaged about 16 dogs per day for daycare in a 4,000 sf building. In the early 2000’s, pet care wasn’t what it is now. Skip forward and over a decade later, 4-Legged Friends has relocated to a custom renovated 17,000 sf building. Dog daycare, dog boarding, cat boarding, and dog training. 24 hour staff/365 days per year. I never would have dreamt it would have grown the way it has.
I truly believe we have done so well because my goal has never been to see bigger numbers each year. My goal, every day, is to have pets leave our facility having had the best time we could give them. That’s my mark of success. And I believe it shows. In myself, my dedicated staff and the pets that go home happy.
My goal is to provide people a place that helps them keep their pets in their family. If daycare helps that rambunctious, bored, chews stuff because no one is home type of dog not land in the shelter; if our boarding helps the ‘I travel too much for work’ person from rehoming their dog or cat; when training classes help people bond to their dog, we’ve done our job. And I love my job.
Thank you, sincerely, for allowing us to be your best friend’s home away from home. We work hard to earn your trust and are honored to partner with your family.
