Success Story
For the Gardners...Pets are Inn!

    When Tom and Kaye Gardner went on vacation, they did not want to impose on friends or neighbors to care for "Briggin" and "Bruno". The thought of using a traditional kennel facility..you know..having their cherished family members locked up in a stuffy/cramped "cage" or "cell" did much to limit their family's travel.
    After the Gardners learned of the Minneapolis based franchise Pets Are Inn, they were overjoyed to find a company that was concerned about the "emotional" as well as the "physical" well being of "Briggin" and "Bruno". You see Pets Are Inn takes pet boarding a step further my providing a private home environment to personally care for the pet's unique personality and needs, a "Host Family".
    In fact the Gardners were so sold on the concept and service that they opened their own business in the Dallas/Plano area in Texas. And after establishing a Top Franchise, they were promoted to Regional Director status, having the rights to sub franchise in the Dallas/Fort Worth market. The Gardner's customers prefer the peace of mind and worry free services of Pets Are Inn.
    With locations nationally and in Hawaii, the company's direction and success has been to network in the veterinary and hospitality/travel industries by forming partnerships with Carlson Wagonlit Travel the American Auto Club of America and with Dr. Jim Humphries the nationally known media veterinarian.
