"Fairwinds And Following Seas"

An Old English nautical term meaning

"Good Fortune and Safe Travels. "

Since I embarked on Fairwinds in August of 2011 my mission has remained the same: to provide your pet with exceptional care on every level, EVERY time so you can enjoy your travels safely and without worry.  

Thank you for stopping by for a visit, After 17 years in the Healthcare Industry I decided it was time for a change. I had been active in animal rescue for 8 years and loved working with the pups. Thus, building Fairwinds Animal Stay was a logical choice for a new career. My goal was to build a kennel that did not utilize cages, provided the pups with large indoor/outdoor runs, lots of natural lighting, plenty of room to play and a room with a view. Fairwinds is located on a 15 acre farm 1.2 miles off  Interstate 40.  We are a family run business and I am blessed that my daughters and their families enjoy the pups and this community as much as I do.  Please feel free to stop in and say hello
