Many people say animals are their life. But when you have 6 dogs, 3 horses, 4 goats and 3 cows like Joyce Aliaga does, it’s really true. Joyce started her professional pet journey 12 years ago when she became a certified dog trainer and volunteered at the Humane Society in Harrisburg, PA. After moving to Florida and working as a kennel tech for just 3 months, she was promoted to general manager at a 160-dog facility in Fort Myers. During Hurricane Irma, she and her staff hunkered down with more than 120 dogs to ensure their safety. The experience led her to become Pet CPR & First Aid Certified, as well as FEMA Certified for Emergency Management during natural disasters.
There’s nothing in the world Joyce wouldn’t do for an animal, including finding the perfect partner to help take care of yours. Enter Frank Hake, fellow animal lover and construction industry professional. With a shared passion and complementary skill sets, Joyce and Frank set out to create the very best daycare and boarding facility known to dog. And when yours trots through the new Pampered Pet Resorts door, rest assured he or she is immediately part of the family.
