About Us

For 20 years, we’ve been treating your pets like our family.

From day care and overnight stays to grooming and training, we do it all under one loving roof.

Manager Kelly Lugo joined Best Friends in 2000 and was promoted to manager soon after. She has managed Best Friends White Plains and Chestnut Ridge NY locations as well as the North Plainfield center. Kelly earned a BS in Animal Science from Rutgers, and worked as a veterinary tech before joining Best Friends. She has been pet parent to two Rottweilers and has special expertise with dominant dogs; she is also experienced with shy and fearful pets. 

Chestnut Ridge,

Offering the best of all worlds, our boarding facility combines state-of-the-art accommodations and a professional pet-loving staff with a beautiful country setting – yet, we’re just minutes from the Garden State Parkway and I-287.

Choose from all-day group play in our spacious doggy daycamp room, or one-on-one playtimes in a large fenced-in yard. Our all-suite Doggy Village is entirely enclosed for your dog’s safety and comfort, while Kitty City is a quiet sanctuary of multi-story condos.

Located right at the state line, we serve pets, and people who love them, from both Bergen and Rockland Counties.
