To our loyal and wonderful clients:
We hope you all are staying safe during this time of uncertainty as the pandemic and its impact continues to unfold. Local, state, and federal authorities continue to make decisions regarding education, recreation, and businesses in an attempt to slow the spread of COVID-19. These decisions, along with the safety and well-being of our amazing clientele and employees, have been deciding factors in all decisions made by ACK.
Our professional staff is the best around; many are long term, highly trained pet professionals. We take pride in paying them far above the median of the industry and in our area. They deserve it as we're sure you can all agree. Our superior care is complemented by a very low dog-to-human ratio to ensure a safe and attentive environment. Even during this pandemic, we are not willing to sacrifice the quality of our care our clients receive by lessening our staffing coverage.
With that being said, it is with heavy hearts we have decided to temporarily close all services provided for the public by ACK, effective Saturday, April 4th. We will reevaluate by April 17th in hopes to reopen Monday, April 20th. This decision was not made lightly; it pains us deeply and our hearts hurt for all of our employees and clients.
As with most businesses, many factors contributed to the decision to temporarily close doors. We weighed the cost of staying open versus cash flow covering expenses along with the potential to continue to spread our local area, putting clients and employees at risk. We hope our decision will aid in decreasing the spread of COVID-19, especially to all of our ACK extended family.
Snuggle your pups a bit more for us the next few weeks! We love them like our own and will miss them all along with the support we receive from wonderful clients like all of you.
For those of you who have asked how you can support ACK during this time, we have gift cards available for purchase by phone that will sent by mail. For those that purchase $150 worth of gift cards, you will also receive another $25 gift card for free! For purchase, give us a call at 319-784-7372.
Rest assured Apple Creek Kennel will survive and return even stronger and hope to see you all back at ACK when we reopen.
Nikee and Brad Woods
Having cared for and loved their own dogs for over 27 years, and after 10 years of successful dog boarding at their home, Mary & Stan Pfoff knew what they wanted to see in a pet boarding facility. They created Apple Creek Kennel as a home away from home - a place they would feel comfortable boarding their own pets. As the new owners, Nikee and Brad Woods-Mary and Stan's niece and nephew, carry on the same care and love for your pups!
Think of us as your dog's home away from home! Your dog will enjoy their own spacious kennel, round the clock care from our 24 hour staff, year-round climate controlled rooms utilizing a specially designed heating and cooling system and regular trips outside for potty breaks. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served using your dogs food and treats from home!
Daycare days full of fun and activity can keep your dog busy all morning and afternoon. There's always something to do whether it's playing with toys, wrestling, jumping in the pools, or just laying around getting some love, your dog will never be bored!
