A Letter To You

Christmas Card image large1test

A letter from Annette:

I thank you for considering Orion Kennel Club, Inc. for your pet (‘s) boarding and grooming needs.

My career choice into opening Orion Kennel Club Inc. was and continues to be one of the most notable in my life. I am a genuine animal lover. I thank everyone who has allowed me to do what I love most. I also hope that many others recognize my passion and realize that my desire is as strong as ever.

Over two decades ago I designed what was considered by many as the most innovative, traditional building, long before new trends followed. I built a 15, 000 square foot building with advanced construction. Much was applied into the cost/design to ensure a safe, large, comfortable and clean building environment. A security system, heated floors, heavy gauged chain link fencing, power wash cleaning system, advanced ventilation system, and double and single rooms are just a few of the aspects applied into the design. I’m proud of my building and take pride in the daily, weekly, and yearly maintenance.

Undertaking this profession for so many years has given me an opportunity to gain an excellent, established staff. My co-workers and I share an abundance of maternal talent and fondness for animals. We have educated ourselves on many canine and feline topics including animal behavior, emergency pet first aid, and the evolving training techniques. I am proud to say we are very qualified as your pet’s personal caregiver. Being privileged to care for numerous animals over the years is an honor. We take our jobs very seriously, and we continue to maintain the most sincere supervision for each and every one of our guests.

Without a doubt, pet ownership is very common. I recognize your pets are family members. I have been in this career for over 25 years, and it has been a privilege to care for many generations of pets. It is apparent our alumni have valued the individual care, and I would like to think that is my most noted credential. For anyone who needs a home away from home for their dog (s) or cat (s) and/or grooming services, please consider Orion Kennel Club Inc. 

From one animal lover to another,

  • Orion Kennel Club Staff,
    I have some very sad news to share. My sweet boy contracted Mega Esophagus and I lost him to the disease on July 18th. It's left an incredible hole in my life. Please give a special thanks to Barb for me as she always made me feel so at ease when I dropped Pogo off (she always greeted him as her little man) for his stays at Orion Kennel. I always felt that all of you embraced his "idiosyncrasies" and appreciated him. ...
