A great place for your pets.
Who we are
We are the third owners of our boarding kennel that has been in business for 40 years.
Four Generations of my family moved to GA from CT in 2017 along with my husband and myself.
Most of us have worked with dogs for years. Howard has experience breeding and showing
dogs, while others work with rescue dogs. Together, we work to make the Happy Tails
experience a good one for pets and owners. We get to know each dog & cat and try to give
them what they need to make their stay with us the best it can be. We strive to live by our
motto “Happy Tails Playhouse…where your pets are family.”
