Hi Mrs. King, Thank you so much for recommending us, and all the great compliments! Our team works very hard to make sure all our furry friends are taken care of, and leave here happy.

Response from business owner

Hi Megan, Thank you so much for recommending us, and understanding the importance of us keeping a safe facility. We work very hard to ensure all the dogs in our care are taken care of as if they were our own. I spend a lot of time doing continuing education in the pet care industry to ensure we are doing the best we can for all the dogs we care for. This includes vaccine protocols, but it doesn't stop there. Our industry is constantly changing, and our job is to make sure the pet parents we work have access to the knowledge, so they can have a better relationship with their furry four-legged family member. I hope you and Lu are both doing great! Thank you for your support of the Dreamer's Foundation. We will continue to move forward and help more vets. ~ Dan

IM YO G

They gave me five free dogs

Response from business owner

Hi, IM YO G,

Thank you so much for giving us a 5-star review. While we always love to hear about dogs finding homes, I believe you might have us confused with another organization. While we do a lot with dogs, we do not sell or give dogs away. We do work with rescue groups to give the pups a fun and loving place to stay while they are looking for their forever homes. I hope your new furry family members are doing great!

Sincerely,

Dan
