Paradise Pet Resorts!
When the time comes to place your pet in a safe, comfortable place while you are away, the first thing that comes to your mind is… who can I trust? Who will look after my best friend, provide distraction from desperately missing me, and be sure every need is met until my return… Enter Paradise Pet Resorts, where our staff will be your pet’s best friends when you can’t be.
Meet the Big Dogs
No pet hotel can flourish without the big dogs in charge. Meet our Activity Directors, Lea and Lewey, who keep the humans on their toes while providing entertainment and help to every pet that comes to visit. Their mission is to ensure each pet feels welcomed and loved and for every pet to paws to have fun while they are staying in Paradise. Lea and Lewey are also permanent residents, so you can count on them to greet your pet at every visit.
Meet the Humans
Human guardians to their pets want to know that the other humans entrusted to care for their best friend are professionals working for a well managed business, where the animals get the best of their skills, dedication, and training. Like our Activity Directors, you will be impressed by the experience and devotion of our human staff. At PPR it’s not just about doing, or having a job. Pet care is the most important thing we do and you can trust us to do the right thing, provide the highest level of care, and take a personal interest in you and your pet. We take great pride and responsibility in our work with pets under our care and look forward to getting to know you and your dog, cat, or hamster! We’d like to tell you a little more about us, too.
Head human and Paradise Pet Resorts’ owner Mike Campbell has been a Santa Rosa native since 1979. Mike was educated at Sonoma State University graduating with a degree in Computer Science. His long standing and loving relationship with animals is reflected in his membership in the Founder’s Society of the Humane Society, Sonoma County, and by learning animal behavior from the Canine Behavior Academy at the Marin Humane Society. In 1996 he ventured out after a 26-year career that lead to management at Long’s Drug Store to open Camp Bow Wow in Santa Rosa. Mike culminated his need to work with animals and to owning his own business with the purchase of a Rohnert Park pet care facility and changing the name of his business to Paradise Pet Resorts in 2010. He is constantly expanding his horizons in pet care with his careful selection of key personnel, commitment to excellence in customer service, and by continuously improving the services and amenities offered at Paradise Pet Resorts.
