Owners are Spanaway locals, who live on property allowing your pet to feel 100% at home at all times. It is the Shaggy Shack Pet Resort & Spa mission to provide outdoor experiences to dogs living in an increasingly urban world.
When the opportunity came up with Green Acres Pet Resort for sale, I about fell off my chair! The lord answered our prayers. Floor covering is a tough job. David is now 54 years old and the wear and tear on his back and knees will get him soon. To be able to own and run a business like this, with the love we have for animals is a true blessing. He will be able to retire without permanent injury and I will be able to do what I love with my doggie zoo. This is an opportunity of a lifetime for us to fulfill both our dreams.
David has currently been in the floor covering installation industry for 35 years. Tonya has been currently a Real estate agent for over 13 years.
Out of the blue one day last spring, David mentioned of how cool it would be to take over my family mini farm and run a dog kennel. Of course this was just a pipe dream, but a dream none the less.
I grew up on a mini farm where we boarded horses as extra income. We had dogs, cats, goats, ducks and rabbits growing up. I was the child that brought home every stray I found. Luckily my parents were receptive and allowed me to keep them until we found the owner and if not then we kept them and gave them a loving home. I can remember as far back as I can and always telling my mom that I would own a zoo someday! She just always, grinned and said she was sure I would.
David grew up in the North end of Tacoma. Not quite farm country but grew up raising Giant Schnauzer’s. A very rare breed of dog. He too, came from an animal loving home.
We have many plans for this place and improvements coming. This will be family owned. Our daughter will be living in the manufactured home and us in the house. My other daughter will be going to college next fall but will take part as she can. Along with the existing employees, we are going to be a great family! It will take a bit of time but we will get there! We are very excited to start a new adventure and to service our new friends.
We sincerely look forward to working with you! Feel free to come and visit and see what we are up to!
