In 1955, Drs. George Alfson and Paul Kahl purchased the property and moved their existing veterinary practice to this site. The property included four separate buildings in a peach and apple orchard setting. One building was converted into a veterinary hospital. The others were an existing boarding kennel, a cattery (with outdoor runs) and an old farmhouse situated near where McDonalds now stands. 1970 the cattery was physically moved across the driveway to be “under one roof” with the existing dog kennel and the newly built hospital you see today.
In the 80’s during two different construction periods the old kennel/cattery was replaced with the present 15,000 square foot complex of today.
The boarding and grooming facility of the 50’s has steadily evolved into a multiple-service animal care complex that includes boarding, grooming, doggie daycare, and a store carrying animal products and food. Combined with the Norwalk Veterinary Hospital it is one of the largest animal care complexes in the Northeast.
