Owners of Pet Ponderosa - Regis and Nancy JacksonProviding a 2nd home for your pet

Pet Ponderosa Resorts & Spas is owned and operated by Nancy and Regis Jackson. The property has been a kennel since 1965 and the Jacksons purchased the property in 2003 with the intention to make it a pet paradise! With years of work and dedication, Pet Ponderosa has grown into the largest kennel in South Pierce County, and it can pride itself on being the number one kennel amongst area veterinarians for referral. We opened in 2003 and continue to grow as a premier leader in the pet care service field in the South Sound. Our trained and experienced staff caters to your pet’s every need in our climate controlled environment. We strive on being a personal and interactive pet resort providing a vast range of activities for your pet while being lodged.

Your pet is like your child and they will receive the personal care and attention they deserve at Pet Ponderosa Resorts & Spas. Check us out by touring our facility any time online or in person!

Animal lovers at heart

Regis & Nancy Jackson have two sons and are avid animal lovers who have always had pets. Both are registered nurses by trade and pride themselves on providing a level of care to their guests that is second to none. They are originally from Cleveland, Ohio, but have grown to call the Washington area home for some years. Both found their love for animals early on in their childhoods and have since made their love for animals a fulltime career. Being pet owners and animal lovers all of their lives, the Jacksons have always wanted to own and operate pet resorts. It was and is their “dream come true” today.

They pride themselves on quality and care and have therefore made their facility an active member in the International Boarding & Pet Services Association (IBPSA), which follows the IPBSA Code of Ethics, ensuring a professional, loving, and caring environment for your pet. The Jacksons work hard to ensure that your pet receives the personal care and attention he/she deserves, and put in every effort to make each experience remarkable!
