Meet Our Staff
My name is Chelsea Lanigan Williams. I am not new to animals but I’m new to the kennel business. I just purchased Southern Pines Pet Lodge in April of 2021.
My husband and I settled down here in Richland County last year after he retired from the Army to be closer to our family. We have our own two fur babies, Francis and Ranch, as well as a baby boy that joined us in October 2020. We have put our heart and soul into up-fitting and renovating Southern Pines this past year, and hope to continue to make it into one of the best kennels and daycare facilities in the area. We can’t wait to have the opportunity to serve you and your pups!
Hey there! My name is Rini, and I am not only a member of the International Association of Canine Professionals, but I am also a professional Dog Care Provider currently working toward becoming a Certified Dog Trainer with two different training organizations. I have worked here at Southern Pines Pet Lodge since October of 2015 as the Manager/”everything” kinda gal! You’ll see me checking in your pets, as well as in the back cleaning, feeding, and giving them all the love I can. You may also see me out at Tractor Supply getting some supplies for my personal flocks of Chickens and Ducks. I always have a crazy color or three in my hair (Currently lime green, teal, and hot pink). In my free time, I enjoy working with my 9 dogs getting some of them ready for training competitions/events, doing professional pet photography, and spending time with my lovely Husband who I married in 2021.
Hey there. My name is Dane. I served 20 years in the military. After retiring I tried out a couple odd jobs until I decided to give Southern Pines a shot because my love of dogs. I enjoy spending time with your pets and playing with them out in our yards.
Hey! My name is Elicia. I’m currently going to school to get my certificate in ASL. I’m hoping to become an interpreter someday. I have a cat, her name is Bandit. I live with 2 dogs and 2 other cats.
