Rushville Boarding Kennel was established in 1988 and is conveniently located in Fairfield County on a five acre country lot, surrounded by trees. It has been family owned and operated for 22 years. In March 2016, Garry and Kathy Winegardner purchased the kennel from our family and took over its operation. We have a passion for pets. They are an important part of our family. With our home only steps from the kennel we are able to provide optimum attention and care to your pet. We strive to make your pet feel happy and at home in a relaxing environment while maintaining a reputation for a clean, caring and well-kept facility.
After retiring from Anchor Hocking, Jane and Paul Wildermuth purchased the Rushville Boarding Kennel. For years they had raised and bred Cocker Spaniels. The decision to operate the kennel seemed like a natural fit because pets have been a big part of their lives. The pets they board are treated as if they are their own.
They have enjoyed getting to know the customers and their pets. Some customers have boarded their pets with them for over 20 years.
After 22 years in the boarding business, Jane and Paul have decided to retire to their new home in Lancaster. They are grateful to their loyal customers that feel like extended family. They will miss the interaction with the customers and their pets.
