The History of Pet Paradise
Like many great ideas, Pet Paradise sprung from a personal need. Founder Fred Goldsmith was looking for a place to board his Bichon Frise, Samantha. After experiencing the same separation anxiety pet owners face every day, he recognized an untapped market. The idea was not only to build a better pet boarding facility, but a comprehensive service provider offering cat and dog boarding, doggie daycare, grooming services and veterinary and wellness care in one location. Since opening its first location in St. Augustine, Florida in 2002, Pet Paradise has grown to over 35 locations throughout the southern and western regions of the country.
