About Zionsville Country Kennel

Meet the Owners

Ron and Debbie Douglas

The Douglases are both animal lovers who were searching for a way to convert their passion into their livelihood. When they purchased Zionsville Country Kennel in 2010, they made that dream a reality. Along with pets Quinten and Trinity, they have moved in right next door to the kennel -- in the home where former owners Jill and Dave Brattain lived, in fact. “I am thrilled to have the opportunity to continue the tradition of loving service to the hundreds of adored pets that Jill and Dave have catered to for so long,” says Deb. “I look forward to getting to know every single pet and pet owner. The Brattains have told me that the Zionsville Country Kennel pet owners are the best group of people in the world, and I’m learning that they were absolutely right.”

In 2009, Sandra decided to go into business for herself.  When family needs required more of her time, she decided to look for part-time work, and the opportunity at Zionsville Country Kennel worked out great for all parties concerned.   Be sure to stop in and say Hi to Sandra.
