OUR MISSION is to provide the best possible care for your pets so you can relax and know that you need not worry about your pets when you leave them with us.

Professional Affiliations

Pet Care Services Association (PCSA) (formerly ABKA)
Kathie joined the American Boarding Kennel Association before they were sure they could find a kennel to operate.  Even then she began attending professional seminars and conferences to learn everything she could about boarding kennels.  Ken and Kathie’s affiliation with other kennel operators across the country has provided insight and inspiration over the years.

The PCSA is the association through which all employees obtain their first level of training certification.  It is also the organization in which Kathie is an inspector for inspections of other kennels and the accrediting organization which certified Belle Creek Kennels, Inc. as a Voluntary Facility Accreditation (VFA).
