About Us



The Ark Pet Spa & Hotel was founded by pet parents searching for a safe, loving home away from home for their beloved pets. Unable to find a clean and fun place for their pets to stay, Jay Floyd and his family decided to build their own pet boarding facility to help not only his own family but countless other families facing the same dilemma. In 2006, Jay opened the very first Ark Pet Spa & Hotel in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Since then, the Ark offers daycare, boarding and grooming services to pet owners throughout East Tennessee and North Georgia.

What sets the Ark apart from other pet boarding and grooming companies is our dedicated and well-trained crew, our state-of-the-art facilities made with your pet in mind, and our ability to care for all types of pets - from iguanas to pot-bellied pigs. Like our name implies, we welcome pets of every shape and size. 

Since 2017, The Ark Pet Spa & Hotel in Hixson offers pet boarding, daycare, grooming and retail to pet owners across Chattanooga. All of our crew members at Hixson are both pet lovers and pet care professionals. We strive to make every single pet who walks, waddles or flies through our doors feel like a part of the Ark family. 

Along with doggie daycare, pet boarding and grooming, the Ark in Hixson offers a full selection of all-natural dog treats and chews in the Slobberbones Bakery & Market. While you’re picking you dog up from daycare, you can stock up on kibble, essential pet supplies and special treats that will leave your pup begging for more.

The Hixson Ark is conveniently located off Hixson Pike, directly next to the Raceway gas station. Our location is easily accessible from surrounding areas including Red Bank, Hixson and Lupton City.  Give us a call at 423-803-6063 or come check us out at 5461 Hixson Pike.
