Daycare with a holistic approach focuses on the dog as a whole, exercising the mind and body; we train basic commands through out the day, have constant staff supervision and interaction, and maintain small group sizes of no more than 15 dogs per day. All of our team members in both our grooming salons and daycare are trained in pet first aid/CPR and basic dog behavior.
To provide healthy and safe food, quality accessories, and Holistic Pet Services at a fair price with your pet’s best interest at heart.
Growing up we always had pets. With my Mother’s animal loving nature, the apple didn’t fall too far from the tree. Our home was a consistent foster haven for many kittens and puppies. We also provided rehab for many wild animals. In 8th grade, I raised a baby squirrel myself and I logged my experience for my 8th grade science project. I received 1st place for my work! Mother taught me how to groom when I was 12, and I had a consistent clientele of my own throughout high school.
When I was 11 years old, my parents started Noah’s Ark Animal Sanctuary. Rockford needed a non-kill shelter for the over abundance of stray cats and dogs, and Noah's Ark quickly filled that void. I spent many Saturday mornings as a kid volunteering by cleaning cages, feeding the animals and taking the dogs for walks. I also volunteered my time to groom the incoming dogs with haircuts, baths, and general grooming maintenance.
After attending Eastern Illinois University and receiving an Accounting Degree and CPA Designation, my first job out of college was in banking as a commercial lender which I enjoyed for 15 years. A large part of my job was to analyze different business models and their financial stability to determine if their operations were viable enough to repay their borrowing needs. It was during this time that I developed my entrepreneurial desire to go into business.
