About Riley's Ranch

The mission of Riley’s Ranch is to provide a place where pets are excited to come, and pet owners have peace of mind that their loved ones are safe and enjoying their time away from home.

Riley, Our Inspiration

Riley, my one-of-a-kind German Shorthaired Pointer, was a true companion and the inspiration for Riley's Ranch Pet Resort. Riley had boundless energy and loved going to the ranch and chasing all kinds of critters all day long; she loved hunting! By the end of the day however, she would lay in my lap and curl up for a good snuggle. She supported me through Vet School and all the challenges life threw at Aaron and me. When she left us at 13 1/2 years old, it left a canyon-sized hole in our hearts. Riley's Ranch Pet Resort is our loving tribute to her. We've made it our mission to provide a place where pets like Riley are excited to come, and pet owners have a peace of mind that their loved ones are safe and enjoying their time away from home.
