Houston, TX — (March 2, 2017) – Rover Oaks Pet Resort was named “2017 Business of the Year” by The Katy Area Chamber Of Commerce on February 17, 2017. Among the deciding factors for which a business is selected for this prestigious award are the business’s involvement in civic and community organizations, initiatives taken and contributions made to improve the community, and their demonstration of excellence as a Katy area business.
Upon opening the doors of its original location in 2001, Rover Oaks quickly secured a reputation as one of the most trusted pet resorts in the Houston metropolitan area, and clients encouraged the team to develop another location on the west side of town. Co-Founder and President of Rover Oaks Pet Resort in Houston, Steve Smith, partnered with pet lover/businesswoman Joy Lee to open Rover Oaks Pet Resort in Katy on September 11, 2006.
“Over the past ten years, I’ve learned that there is nothing like the spirit of community in Katy, Texas,” said Steve Smith, Co-Founder of Rover Oaks Pet Resort in Katy. “While the city has grown immeasurably since 2006 when we first opened our business, it has still maintained an incredible spirit of community that you can’t find anywhere else. We are delighted to be a part of that community, and we are truly honored to accept this award,” he added.
“Our staff has worked tremendously hard over the past ten years and together, we are honored to accept this award recognizing our dedication to the Katy community. We will continue to make the betterment of our community a top priority in the years to come,” said Joy Lee, Co-Founder and General Manager of Rover Oaks Pet Resort in Katy.
Rover Oaks Pet Resort has won over 30 awards in recognition of exceptional service and humanitarian efforts including the Better Business Bureau’s highest honors for the last 6 years. Owners and staff are also active volunteers in the community. For non-profit organizations and rescue groups, and particularly with Citizens for Animal Protection, Rover Oaks has donated thousands of service hours, fostered hundreds of dogs and cats, and raised hundreds of thousands of dollars. Rover Oaks recently wrapped up its sixth annual Operation: War Dogs fundraiser, cumulatively raising more than $90,000 for that organization.
Since 2001, the Rover Oaks team has built an unrivaled depth of reliability and trust with clients needing boarding, daycare, grooming and training services for their pets. The demand for superior pet care and exceptional customer service, and pet owners’ eagerness to patronize a business that embodies such a standard, is the reason Rover Oaks has done so well since its inception.
