In 1989, Roger and Cheryl Naumann became the proud parents of a lemon beagle they dubbed Pogo. The pup's playful demeanor was clouded by a host of congenital health conditions, each handled with unrelenting love by her owners. Pogo brought joy to Roger and Cheryl for 16 years and left her stamp on the world in the form of Pogo's Place, a pet-adoption facility in the lobby of Second Home Pet Resort.

Inspired by their beloved pooch, hotel executive Roger and his wife Cheryl, president and CEO of the Arizona Humane Society for almost six years, combined their talents to open the pet lodge. Nestled into a mountainside like a billy goat's summer cottage, the 16,500-square-foot haven boards cats and dogs in luxury suites, with staff onsite 24 hours a day.

Air-conditioning and heating systems maintain comfortable temperatures in cats' and dogs' separate quadrants and play areas. Pooches being boarded or babysat at doggie daycare frolic around an area that spans 1,000 square feet, with more than an acre of grassy knolls and playground equipment surrounded by 7-foot walls. Under supervision, they explore the Splash & Play water park's decks and waterfalls to cool off or practice their synchronized-swimming routine. Kitties scale trees and paw at scratching posts in the cat atrium. Pet cams accessible via the internet at any hour and extra care for special-needs pets give owners peace of mind, and grooming offered onsite pares down their to-do lists.

The Arizona Humane Society has provided shelter and rehabilitation to homeless and abandoned animals since 1957, watching over more than 46,000 dogs, cats, and smaller critters every year as they await new homes. After proving their eligibility for adoption and consulting with the shelter staff, new owners can choose a companion from any of the pets prowling the menagerie, from puppies and kittens up to 9 months old to adult dogs and cats. Rabbits and ferrets also scurry about, searching for farmers' carrots carelessly planted in an animal shelter. For current owners, the society provides low-cost spaying and neutering services as a public service, as well as education and outreach programs to promote compassion and ensure a safe home for all creatures.

Pooches of all breeds and sizes scamper into Kosmo's Doghouse and, after spending a short time with the facility's professionals, head home cleaner, neater, and better trained. Inside, dog owners utilize a multitude of services, including grooming sessions conducted by a team that has more than 50 years of experience with more than 160 breeds of dogs and cats. At self-serve washing stations, faucets blast away dirt and give pups the swagger they need to stand tall during street fights with the household vacuum. The shop also stocks a variety of treats and toys, and works closely with no-kill shelters, frequently hosting adoption and fundraising events.
