The Animal Tender Story

The Animal Tender Pet Resort opens its doors in 1997 to fulfill the need for a high-end pet lodging resort in the Saint George, Utah, area. It was built with comfort and convenience in mind and was carefully designed to meet the needs of both pets and their parents.

Today, The Animal Tender Pet Resort is a full-service destination for pet lodging, dog daycare and day camp and grooming. Our staff is committed to ensuring the health and safety of area pets and is passionate about doing whatever it takes to keep them happy and comfortable while in our care.

If a health concern arises, The Animal Tender will make every effort to have your pet seen by your Veterinarian. If your veterinarian is not available, or none is listed, we will contact Lava Rock Veterinary Hospital. Southwest Animal Emergency Clinic is always available for after hour emergencies.
