When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
Who doesn't love dogs?? We never want to leave home without our dog but sometimes we have to. Happy Tails, where the elite with four feet meet, fills in that void. We're here for you and your dog when you can't be. We love to get to know each owner and dog and what makes them unique.

During their stays at Nancy Crane’s Family Pet Care, dogs and cats alike play and lounge under the doting eyes of the animal-loving staff. In the dog kennel, pups sprawl out on heated floors when it's chilly or let their floppy ears waggle in the breeze from central air conditioning on hot days. Outside their doggy doors, hounds can take in the fresh air on daily indoor and outdoor runs.
In the separate cat area far away from disdainful pooches, kitties in most units peer out their windows in search of songbirds, squirrels, neighborhood children, and other natural prey.
The facility's staff is on hand 24 hours a day, to ensure that help is always nearby in case your pup has that recurring dream about eating a gigantic bone. For dogs, the caregivers also dole out some optional pet-pampering services, including outdoor playtime, grooming, and treats of peanut-butter-filled bones and ice-cream cones.
The Central Missouri Humane Society exists to prevent and alleviate the suffering and uncontrolled reproduction of companion animals with an emphasis on public education, adoption and providing basic veterinary services for under-served pet owners.
Yips and Yaps just might be a better place than home, especially when dogs' owners are away. Here, pets can get groomed, play with friends, or even stay overnight while their owners travel. Though staff provides bowls, beds, and blankets for boarding charges, pet owners are welcome to pack their pups' own belongings from home. During daycare sessions in the center's outdoor and indoor play yards, pets acquire crucial socialization skills they can't get at home, no matter how often they try to play tug of war with the houseplants.
Kelly Shaw has a long history of animal advocacy. In addition to volunteering with local rescue groups, she's traversed state lines to help fosters and strays find their forever-homes. She even welcomed two of those rescues into her own family.
Over the course of her work, she saw how dogs' bad behavior was connected to a lack of exercise and attention. That bad behavior often frustrated owners to the point where they would take what could have been a beloved pet to the shelter. That's why she and her husband, Brian, opened Club K9—to give dogs a cage-free place to safely roam and play with other canines.
Their facility features two large play rooms covered in rubber flooring, as well as a separate space for small dogs. It also offers an outdoor area with both shade-covered and sunny spots for dogs that need to keep cool and dogs that need to get some color to prove to their friends they had a nice vacation.
Inside the boarding space, where soft music constantly plays, dogs can count on sleeping in the same crate each night with their favorite toy from home. If owners don't want to crate their dogs, Club K9 boards them in spacious private suites. In addition to daycare and pet boarding,
