Boasting a 1.5-acre fenced-in yard and 11 boarding suites, The Dog House keeps pets comfortable and safe during daycare and boarding sessions. The attentive staff separates dogs by size for supervised daytime play sessions and also offers bathing and training services.
Dr. Josh Kindred and his team of pet-loving vet technicians have dedicated their small practice to providing personalized care for each critter they see. Recognized as an accredited practice by the American Animal Hospital Association, Kindred's intimate care center handles an array of diagnostic and treatment procedures, including laser surgery, x-rays and ultrasounds, dental care, and immunizations. Dr. Josh and crew also host overnight guests for owners traveling out of town, providing supervised care in a climate-controlled kennel. During their stay, pets can safely frolic and share plates of spaghetti in the outdoor enclosure of the recently added play area. While pups romp around the grass, staffers keep their well-trained eyes peeled for behavioral changes, allowing each fuzzy face to enjoy a safe and pleasant residency.
Before she opened Nature's Pet Grooming, Lisa Jordan traveled across the United States to hone her skills. In Charleston, she apprenticed show groomers; in Oahu, she worked as a mobile groomer; in D.C., she groomed top dog politicians. Finally, she officially became a master in the field at the Paragon School of Pet Grooming
and settled down in Florida.
As the owner of Nature's Pet Grooming, she's fostered strong relationships with her canine customers. Her deluxe baths cater to a dog's natural anxiety about grooming with a relaxing hydromassage shampoo delivery, cozy towel wrap, and gentle ear cleanings. Extras such as massage, lavender aromatherapy, and citrus rinses make pooches feel extra special on their birthdays or graduation from space camp.
Founder Carole Baskin never dreamt she'd one day oversee a 55-acre sanctuary inhabited by some of Earth's largest cats. In 1992, she and her late husband were at an exotic-animal auction seeking out llamas for their farm. A man had a 6-month-old bobcat that he could no longer care for, and the pair decided to give it a place to call home. They then traveled to a bobcat breeder for another playmate, but upon seeing the horrible conditions the animals were kept in, they bought all 56 kittens. They rehabilitated them back to health, and gave them permanent homes on their then-40-acre site. Soon, word of her knack for nurturing spread beyond the Tampa area, and callers began donating abandoned or orphaned cats. Her mission to save these animals also reached the ears and hearts of many celebrities, including contributors Harrison Ford and Bo Derek.
After 20 years of hard work and learning, Carole is still caring for abused and abandoned big cats at her rescue site, accommodating more than 100 medium and large creatures from bengal tigers and black leopards to lynx and lions. Her staff of volunteers helps care for the animals and leads groups in tours that educate visitors on the plight of these animals both in the wild and in captivity.
Whenever Brian Corby bathed his dog Presley, she shook and squirmed, flooding the bathroom and exhausting her owner. Taking her to the groomers was hardly better: careless clippers nicked her belly and chipped her nails too short, dashing her dreams of modeling in poker dog portraits. Fed up, Brian enlisted his long-time pal Greg to come up with an alternative, and the result was Green Dog Wash. They staff professional dog groomers whose exacting standards dictate that fur is cleansed with natural shampoos, teeth are brushed, and ears and eyes are cleaned. Owners can also bathe their furry companions themselves in a professional grooming center with tubs, shampoos, and towels, avoiding the hassles of cleaning up at home. When pets drop by one of Green Dog Wash's two locations, they often pull their owners over to the gift section, which stocks eco-friendly treats and toys. The goods, including Natural Balance dry dog food, West Paw Design beds, and K-99 natural treats, double as enticing bribes for dogs reluctant to shower off.
