My name is Shannon and my husband is Josh. We are thrilled to be the owners and operators of Cookeville K9 -n- Friends, since 2015!
My life has always passionately revolved around animals. We had dogs, cats, guinea pigs, bunnies, a parakeet, hamsters, a mouse, rats, a snake, and fish. I wanted to care and spend time with them all! I followed that passion and went to the Bel-Rea Institute of Animal Technology to become a veterinary technician. From there I gained experience in veterinary hospitals, a teaching hospital, rescue and shelters, and finally at a dog daycare and boarding facility. I helped build a new dog daycare and boarding, from their first day, to a successful and well-loved daycare facility, located in the St Louis region. That was when I knew that I wanted to have my own facility, which I could run with the high standards I expect and the ethics I so strongly believe in. Josh is an Air Force Veteran with an entrepreneurial spirit, a degree in business management, and a love for animals. His experience is geared mainly towards dogs and cats.
Our mission is to provide the utmost care and compassion to your pet, such as you yourself would give. We want to provide a fun and active environment, where boarding pets feel that they are on vacation too! By providing options for socialization, activity, mental stimulation, and delicious treats, we will keep all pets happy, healthy, and enriched!
We look forward to meeting you and your pet and hope to be an integral part of your lives!
