Meet Our Staff
A combined 41 years of professional animal care experience.
My name is Chelsea 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 military to be closer to family. We have our own two fur babies, Francis and Ranch, as well as a baby boy that joined us in October 2020. We are very excited to take on this new adventure, and have big plans for Southern Pines Pet Lodge. We hope to see you out here.
“My goal is helping dogs and owners have the best bond they can have and am working toward not just one but two Dog Handling certificates!”
Hey there! My name is Rini, and I am 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 for 3 years as the manager and groomer, and have recently started to offer training as well. 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 & Pet Supermarket getting your pet treats and toys for their stay, or with one of the Training pups I have in my training programs! I always have a crazy color or two in my hair (Currently Red and Green!). In my free time I enjoy working with horses, doing professional photography and spending time with my own personal pack of 8 pups!
We are located within 25 minutes of some of the best places including : Fort Jackson, Village at Sandhill, Columbia Place and more.
