We've been setting new pet care standards since 1995.

Best Friends Pet Care has top-notch, employee-owned facilities offering a variety of services: boardinggroomingdaycare, and training. Each location has its own unique charm, reflecting our commitment to excellence and strong ties within the local community.

We focus on building upon the strengths of your business while maintaining what makes it special. Collectively we will determine the best approach to nurture your employees, grow your business and protect your legacy.


Promote your team to stakeholders.

We ensure that our team shares in our success in a meaningful way. That’s why we introduced an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP).

Through the ESOP, our employees become part owners of the company and enjoy financial benefits from their hard work. This provides a direct incentive for them to give their best and take pride in their contributions.

As a result, your employees will not only become part of our team, but also become owners of our business.


Secure your legacy.

We recognize that building your business has been a remarkable journey. It has required years of dedication, hard work and determination to shape it into what it is today.

Therefore, we understand that deciding to sell your business is an immense decision – one that we will support every step of the way.


We have a knack for simplifying the complex

here's why....
