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 Doreen Baker, who has been with Best Friends since 2007, has long been active in the pet community as a volunteer with Great Dane Rescue. Dori and her dog Benson, a Great Dane / Lab mix, are Therapy Pet Certified, working with autistic and special needs children, and in the R.E.A.D (Reading Education Assistance Dogs) program at a local elementary school. Dori shares her home with five other dogs, four cats, one rabbit, and a turtle.


Our vacation retreat for pets offers a 10-acre country setting with fields for romping and a pond and woods to explore.

Our facility takes full advantage of the beautiful setting: dogs enjoy spacious indoor-outdoor suites and Kitty City has a big window so feline guests can bird-watch.

In addition to walks around the pond and woods, canine guests can romp with friends in our large fenced play yards or our climate-controlled indoor camp room, depending on the weather. Our manager lives in the historic horse barn right on site, giving pet owners added peace of mind.
