“I love getting to know our clients and their pets and seeing how excited they get to stay with us!”

  • I have been a part of the Pet Palace family since June of 2019. I started as a Customer Service Specialist at our Columbus, Airport location, and currently hold a position as the Assistant Manager.
  • In my spare time, I like to be around friends and family. I also enjoy spending time with my pups, Camilla (pictured) and Toby.
  • I love Pet Palace because of our clients and especially the dogs!


Loved and Trusted By Pet Owners

  • Our dog is boarded at the Pet Palace Resort – Columbus Airport – as least once a year. He receives excellent care. He is groomed by Kim at least eight times a year. She has a great deal of patience. It is difficult to groom a moving target. Kim always makes him look wonderful.

  • Once again, I had great peace of mind boarding Maya at Pet Palace Columbus, OH 43219. They were able to provide me with a complete record of her activities, including play times. This is definitely her “home away from home”! THANK YOU!!

They take care of your pets really good and you don’t need to worry about your little ones when you are vacation. We have been using them for more than 10 years now, never disappointed

  • We rarely leave our dog anywhere. This group did the best they could to make us comfortable. We liked all of the extras offered to make sure our dog got enough attention. Easy check in and out.

  • Pet Palace-Columbus is the only place to take your dog!!! My dog Russell has been boarded and groomed there for the past 5 years and loves his home away from home so much that I don’t even need to have him on a leash to go inside. He has stayed there as long as 16 days in a row and always comes home healthy, clean, fresh, rested and happy. Best staff, great groomer and perfect location!!! I wouldn’t go anywhere else!!!

  • Being new to the area, finding a trustworthy boarding facility that I found suitable for my dog was a top priority. Now that I’ve boarded my dog here, I just can’t board him anywhere else. The staff is knowledgeable, super friendly, and incredibly accommodating to the needs of both you and your pet. I trust them completely to provide excellent care for my dog.
