The Sawgrass Pet Resort hosted its open house to a packed crowd on March 6 and 7. The 5,000 square-foot facility provides dog daycare, boarding and training, among other services.
Kate Wagner, owner of the Sawgrass Pet Resort, said she was excited to see so many Ponte Vedra Beach residents come out to show support for her new business.
“It’s so exciting because we are locals and we live here,” Wagner said. “Everyone has been texting and telling me they are so happy we are here. It's been wild.”
Wagner founded the Sawgrass Pet Resort after seeing a lack of available boarding houses in the area. Due to her work running the Grayter Good Weimaraner Rescue, Wagner has established relations with the Humane Society, S.A.F.E Pet Rescue and Florida Urgent Rescue (F.U.R.).
Wagner said that what she is most excited for is the ability to host organizations like these for charity and community events.
“We have a seasoned staff of professionals in the industry,” Wagner said. “I am going to focus on doing the altruistic stuff. Quarterly adoptions, football nights and Round Up for Rescues.”
In addition to providing boarding, hosting events, daycare and training, the resort will offer dog reiki and Pawsitively Delectable locally made, all-natural dog treats. Currently the facility is accepting registration for dog boarding and daycare. Visit sawgrasspetresort.com to fill out an online registration form or for more information.
