Dogs first began bounding happily through Cascade Kennels, Inc. in 1975, when the pet-care facility opened on a rural, wooded plot of land. The owners fully rebuilt the facility in 1999, and today, dogs continue to thrive in secure, heated areas designed for safety and comfort. Caring staffers tend to canines' physical and emotional needs during daycare and boarding sessions, engaging them with activities such as grooming, one-on-one play sessions, and social interaction with other dogs. Canines aren't the only guests welcome at Cascade Kennels, however; caretakers also look after cats, birds, rabbits, and other household pets.
Amore Petcare’s team of animal-care specialists provides grooming services for dogs of all sizes and breeds. They can pamper tail-wagging clients with haircuts, baths, and nail treatments, or get pet owners situated to wash their own pups with cleansing stations stocked with all the supplies needed to get doggies clean without making a mess at home. Each station comes with shampoo and towels, as well as nail-trimming tools and a hair dryer. The shop’s waiting area gives humans a comfortable place to wait for canine companions being groomed by the staff. In fact, the whole family can wait it out, since the area boasts sofas, pet beds, and dry-erase boards for children to draw on or teach long division to schnauzers.
You Dirty Dog is a grooming, daycare, and walking service that boasts a cage-free, fully-fenced indoor facility. Groomers deeply clean and brush the coats of cats and dogs and offer a walk-in shower for elderly or giant-size canines. In addition, they trim bird wings and the nails of reptiles and other small animals. You Dirty Dog also offers doggy-daycare and walking services, as well as pet-taxi and delivery services.
Spay and neuter surgeries change the lives of free-roaming cats. For females, it means a lower risk of infections and pregnancy complications; for males, less fighting and fewer health problems. When the Feral Cat Spay/Neuter Project started in 1997, the mission was to spay and neuter as many free-roaming cats as possible, helping reduce overpopulation and the need for euthanasia deaths in community shelters.
Today, the organization has expanded its work to include all cats, including those with homes. When a cat arrives for surgery, it also receives a basic health exam, rabies vaccination, and, for free-roaming cats, an ear tip to identify it as spayed or neutered. Since its inception, the Feral Cat Spay/Neuter Project has performed the surgery on more than 82,000 cats. The organization collaborates with other like-minded groups and individuals striving to care for animals in a safe, humane environment.
With 18,000 square feet of boarding facilities and 10 park-like spaces for pups to romp in, the Academy of Canine Behavior is a true pet-care destination. Dogs bunk down with the staff of trainers and behaviorists for the signature five-week Board and Train program, during which they learn proper manners, such as how to share toys, greet guests, and do their own taxes. Both boarding and daycare guests frolic in indoor or outdoor dog runs during the day, and cats can daydream about enemy birds in their own exclusive area. Owners can also schedule sessions with the on-site groomer, who has experience with hard-to-handle animals, especially those who insist on doing their own makeup.
