OUR STORY

Welcome to Southern Pines Pet Lodge, the place where love, care, and an intimate understanding of animals fuse together to provide your fur babies a home away from home. I am Chelsea Lanigan Williams, the passionate heart behind our Pet Lodge.

My journey with animals is not a newfound love, but my venture into the kennel business is novel. I took the reins of Southern Pines Pet Lodge in April 2021, marking the beginning of a remarkable chapter in my family’s lives.

We nestled into the heart of Richland County a year prior, following my husband’s retirement from the Army. The tranquil surroundings of the county drew us closer to our family roots, and it’s here that our two furry companions, Francis and Ranch, as well as our two toddlers have chosen to grow roots. The transformation of Southern Pines mirrors the dedication we’ve poured into this endeavor.

We’ve spent countless hours renovating and upgrading our facilities, infusing our love and commitment into every nail and board. Our constant vision is to shape Southern Pines into a paragon among kennels and daycare facilities. We strive to create an environment that caters to your pet’s needs, fosters joy, and exudes a sense of belonging.

Our mission? To be the best, and nothing less. We eagerly anticipate the opportunity to extend our services to you and your pups. We understand that each pet is an integral part of your family and promise to treat them as a part of ours. With us, you’ll find more than a kennel – you’ll discover a warm, loving community for your four-legged friends.

Join us at Southern Pines Pet Lodge. We can’t wait to welcome you and your pups into our family!

Since new management has taken over, Southern Pines Pet Lodge is a great place to take our dogs! With the extra attention given for supervised play, it makes us feel comfortable leaving our furbabies. Would highly recommend as a doggy daycare or boarding while on vacation. Your dogs will love it!

My puppy has been going to Southern Pines for about 4 months now, and he LOVES them! Anytime I drop him off he’s so excited to greet everyone and go play with his doggie friends. I never worry when he’s there because I know he is in good hands with the employees. They love on him like he’s their own and I’m so appreciative of the care they give to him.

Grace B.

Can’t recommend enough! Apollo has been going there for a month and loves going in every day for daycare and playing with his friends. He gets lots of playtime, and it makes my day when the staff tells me about all the dogs he played with. He loves the staff and I can see that they genuinely care about the pets in their care. Exceeded my expectations, worth every penny!!!

Have Questions? We're Here to Help.

Many common questions about about our services are answered here.

Here at Southern Pines we offer Overnight Boarding, Daily Daycare, On and Off Leash Training, and even Grooming services such as baths, haircuts, and nail trims!

An evaluation day is required for all new pets coming to Southern Pines Pet Lodge. This is a full day reservation much like our daycare day, where we screen a dog or cat for any aggression towards our staff or extreme kennel anxiety that would make it unsafe for them to board with us. If you are coming from out of town, we will work with you to get a referral from your local boarder to clear your pet.

While it is not required to bring your own, we do always suggest that you bring your own pets food for digestive purposes. Switching your pet’s food quickly can cause a tummy upset. This can lead to vomiting, diarrhea, and other medical problems. Bringing your pets food is the best choice.

We spend a large portion of the day with your pet, so we really get to see and understand how your dog interacts and behaves. We are able to quickly notice changes in your pet’s behavior. If they seem “off”, or don’t feel well, action is taken as quickly as we can. We use TWO NOTCH ROAD ANIMAL CLINIC during open hours, and CVETS after hours. The first thing we will do when we notice an injury or illness is contact you or your emergency contact and see how you would like us to proceed. We then will contact the veterinarian if you wish us to. Should we be unable to contact you or your emergency contact we will care for the pet as our own and get them the care they need. You are solely responsible for any and all veterinary care received by your pet during or after their stay.

We happily take puppies over the age of 16 weeks (4 months) as long as they are up to date on all required vaccines. We love having puppies in to get them socialized and used to new surroundings!

All pets are required to have their Rabies, Canine Influenza, Bordetella and Distemper Vaccines. They also need to be on a flea medication.

It is our goal to have a safe, stress-free environment for every dog who stays with us. We highly suggest bringing your pet in the morning hours to make the transition smoother for all pets involved. The later into your home routine your pet is, the harder it will be for them to adjust to our environment for the day. The pups all have to greet and adjust to new dogs coming in, and the later in the day that happens gives them less time to settle in.

There’s a 3-day minimum for all holiday reservations during our holiday blocks.
