In 2008, the duo heavily contemplated selling the kennel. When they finally decided to sell the facility, the one condition they had was that the new owners would have to have the same passion, dedication, and care for the guests as they did. In late 2009, Dawn and Samantha finally found the right couple to take over, Dave and Cathy Contrada.


Dave and Cathy are avid animal lovers. They have had pets for years and currently have six dogs and three cats. Their love for animals runs deep and as a result they decided to pursue this lifelong dream. Cathy has taken a certified dog training course and has her pet first aid certificate. Dave has his pet first aid certificate.


It is their mission to maintain a very clean facility where your pets’ health, safety, and enjoyment continue to be paramount.
