y father is a veterinarian and taught me to love and care for animals from a very young age. And I, in turn, passed along our family’s passion for animals to my daughter. I guess you could say it’s in our blood! It may be my name on the building, but Hagan’s Pet Resort is truly a family-owned business, reflecting three generations of animal lovers. And I wouldn’t have it any other way.
The idea started when I was at Auburn University. Boarding my pets felt like punishment. They were locked in smelly wire and concrete “cages” that passed as kennels. I wanted so much more for my beloved animals. I wanted to see them healthy, happy and carefree. For me, few things in life bring greater joy.
That’s what drove me to build a pet resort that surpassed any other boarding facility. I wanted a place where pets would feel at home, cared for by people who love animals as much as their owners and I do. A place where every one – with two or four legs – would feel welcome. In short, I wanted the best for the animals I love so much.
So I began to dig around. I spent years visiting and researching different types of boarding facilities around the Southeast, looking for the ideal combination of care and quality. What I found were kennels that smelled like barns and felt more like a holding cell than a home. Our pets deserve better.
These loving creatures are our children. It may sound trite, but it’s true. They’re our fur family, and they’re loyal from their heads to their paws. They don’t see our flaws or imperfections. They simply love us unconditionally. And I wanted to honor that love by creating a place that was as close to home as possible.
Once you’re here, you’ll see the care that went into building a state-of-the-art boarding facility that caters to your pet’s every need. We hope you’ll make us your pet’s home away from home.
