Canine Influenza

There have been confirmed cases of canine influenza in NC. At this time we do not require this vaccination, but if reports continue to expand, this vaccination will be required. If your dog hasn't had the vaccine, it may be a good idea to get it anyway. Just like the human flu shot, it may not prevent the canine flu, but it will help them recover quicker. Your dog can't get the flu from the vaccine.


We require any pet entering our facility for boarding or grooming to have all current vaccinations. They must have their Rabies, Distemper/Parvo and Bordetella (Kennel Cough) vaccination records on file no later than the arrival day. Pets arriving here without current records will be turned away. We want your pet as well as everyone elses to have a healthy and happy visit to our Resort. Thank You!



Ken and Paula Alter have over 25 years of experience in professional photography. Semi-retired but we still love to capture animals being themselves! We are going to reopen our studio right inside Paula's Pet Paradise so you can get a professional quality portrait of your four-legged kids!

Ken was the official photographer for The University of Pittsburgh at Braford. He was on call for several industries for industrial photography such as; Dresser Manufacturing, Allegheny Bradford Corporation, Bradford Forest Products, and more. An approximate sample of our photographic experience is listed below:

  • 250 weddings
  • 200 high school seniors
  • 200 Families
  • 200 Dogs, Cats and Reptiles

Photos can be taken during the week or weekends. You can also make your appointment for photos when you bring your pet in for grooming. We offer an exclusive photo service to our grooming clients for a very nominal fee.
