In April 2002, Kim Whiting and Bonnie Allen developed the concept of superior pet care philosophy which became Pappy’s Pet Lodge. An architect and contractor were engaged to build the first Pappy’s Pet Lodge and was opened for business in 58 days. The level of care was immediately evident with a sold out lodge during the very first weekend in business, and Pappy’s Pet Lodge has grown successfully by maintaining this well-regarded standard of service.
Soon after opening, Pappy’s was recognized as a leader in pet care and in the community. The recognition and awards in pet care received by Pappy’s Pet Lodge has driven their growth to 5 successful locations serving the Dallas Ft/ Worth Metroplex.
Pappy’s has been honored with awards from the Richardson Chamber of Commerce, Plano Chamber of Commerce, Best of D Magazine, Living Magazine, Top 10 Companies in Collin County, Plano Star Courier, and Enterprise Banks Celebration of Enterprise Award which lead to a growing satisfied customer base of over 10,000 pet families. Pappy’s Pet Lodge is proud to have been featured on Fox TVs “Renovate My Family” with Dr. Phil’s son Jay McGraw, “Sheer Dallas”, and NBC Channel 5 “Home and Lifestyle” TV show.
