A Letter from Mike & Judy
Dear Valued Customer,
As we complete our 3rd summer of ownership, we continue to look for ways we can better serve you, as well as improve our facility. So far in 2012, we have completed the upgrade of all 3 of our heat pumps to make sure all of our pets are warm in the winter. We installed artificial turf in our main play area, used for doggie day care, to ensure dogs stay clean even on rainy days. We remodeled our guest bathroom, and added a Dutch door to our office to allow greater access to the owners, Mike & Judy. We continued rehabing our dog runs, and purchased new floors for the runs so we can keep dogs warm and dry in the winter time.
In addition, we continue to strengthen our position within the rescue community, providing free shelter for select rescue groups including Wayside Waifs, T.A.R.A., Angels Left Behind, and others. We will once again host a Low-Cost Shot Clinic on Saturday October 6th, with proceeds going to Help Humane in Belton. Details of this event and an upcoming adoption event are below.
Unfortunately, costs continue to skyrocket. The increases in cost to heat and cool the facility, the increases in health care costs, and just the overall increase in all costs force us into a position where we have to raise boarding rates. In addition to these increases, we’ve seen a 20% increase in dog food pricing this year due to the impact the hot summer had on the corn crop. We’re sure you’ll be seeing this as well when you go out to buy your pets food this month. Therefore, we can no longer provide food at no charge. Despite the price increase that goes into place October 1st, 2012, we remain the value leader amongst pet boarding facilities that offer similar accommodations and play. We analyzed this increase very carefully and firmly believe that not only does it afford us the ability to keep up with the rising cost of overhead, it also gets us to a point where we can finally start adding additional benefits for our loyal customers. Effective immediately, we will offer a 10% discount on boarding for Senior Citizens and US Military personnel, both active and veterans. We continue to pursue a loyalty program similar to most hotel chains, and hope to have it in place by next spring. Look for details in the coming months. Finally, we are also going to be expanding our retail offerings, starting with Halloween collars and leashes. We will only bring products that are unique and provide value to you, the pet owner. We will look to capitalize on the number of pictures we take of your pets and start offering coffee mugs, cell phone and tablet cases, calendars, and key chains personalized with your pet’s picture on them. You can also inquire about Man’s Best Friend Pet Resort Apparel.
Our commitment to you is that we will continue to improve our facility, treat your pets as if they were our own, and provide better customer service and unique value-added product and service offerings, so that we can truly earn the distinction of being, “Your pet's home away from home.” We appreciate your support, feedback, and encouragement, both in the past and in the future.
Very Best Regards,
Mike & Judy Moore

Welcome to Man’s Best Friend Pet Resort!
Your Pet's Home Away From Home!
At Man’s Best Friend Pet Resort, we believe your pet should be spoiled. That’s why we’ve created an environment that'll have your pets' tail wagging as soon as you pull into our driveway. Pets will have the chance to play, relax, tan, and swim—whatever they desire, at our premier resort. Whether they’re here for the day as part of Doggie Day Care, or an extended overnight stay, every pet will enjoy their stay at Man’s Best Friend Pet Resort. They’ll get plenty of activity, and all the love and attention they so deserve.
Man’s Best Friend Pet Resort offers a full array of services for your dog and/or cat, including
Every one of our 57 indoor/outdoor oversized dog runs has its' own personal patio area so dogs can enjoy fresh air. On nice days, we utilize our 3.2 acres of land to allow dogs to run and play with other dogs. We have special sections for smaller dogs, as well as a senior area for dogs who can’t play as fast as they once could. Some dogs just prefer to be left alone. No worries, one of our K9 concierges will be happy to provide one-on-one playtime for those dogs who march to their own drummer. On very cold or very hot days, all dogs will play in our Doggie Day Care indoor facility.
And let’s not forget our feline friends! Man’s Best Friend is the perfect place to leave your cat. Our temperature-controlled cattery allows cats to be cats. We have special beds and toys, so cats can get plenty of exercise during their stay. Our window suite is perfect for that special cat who thinks a nap in the sun is the ideal weekend getaway.
At Man’s Best Friend Pet Resort, we love all pets. Every pet will get a pat on their back and a kiss on the nose before we say goodnight. Our goal is to give your pet the same love and attention that your pet gives you. In short, Man’s Best Friend Pet Resort will become your pets' home away from home. Don’t be surprised if, after a couple of stays with us, your pet starts dropping hints of vacation getaways for you, just so they can return to the fun and frolic of Man’s Best Friend Pet Resort.
Hope to see you soon! Judy, Mike, Cali and Chief
