Pampered Pet Inn began in 1982 as a modest dog grooming and lodging facility. Ellen, our owner, worked as a groomer for PPI for nearly 16 years before deciding that she wanted to leave to start her own grooming business. When she went to resign, the original owners made her an offer she couldn't refuse: purchasing Pampered Pet Inn.
Ellen went on to purchase the Inn and raise her two daughters, Erin and Mary Kate, as active participants in the evolution of the business. The girls grew up and went from helping around the shop occasionally to becoming acting CEO of Pampered Pet Resorts and the Pampered Pet Doggie Day Camp Coordinator, raising their own children in the Pampered Pet family and continuing the tradition of serving Houston's pampered pets. Ellen, of course, remains in the shop as a dedicated groomer, and plans to continue grooming until she is no longer physically able.
Pampered Pet Recreation Center officially opened its doors in September 2021, specializing in our enrichment-based daycare. This new facility offers amazing features like a doggie waterpark, sensory garden, and 16,000 sq. ft. of play space! PPRC is a dream come true for Erin and Mary Kate and years in the making. In honor of this, Pampered Pet Resorts was created as the parent company to the two facilities.
Everyone in the Pampered Pet family is hopeful for the future of Pampered Pet Resorts, and we can't wait to continue serving generations of pets in the greater Houston area.
