The Ark Pet Spa & Hotel

Pet parents know the feeling. That awful guilt and anxiety that creeps up whenever you have to leave a pet. We've got a solution for that!

Our founder Jay Floyd was feeling pet stressed when he and his family began researching boarding options for their beloved Rottweiler, Sophie. They were leaving town on a short vacation, but everywhere they looked, they got the sneaking suspicion that Sophie wouldn't be having as much fun as them during their time off.

To fill this gap, Jay set out to create a safe harbor for pets — a fun place where their parents wouldn't feel an ounce of guilt leaving them for the day or entire week. The Ark would be an all-inclusive pet hotel, spa, and daycare where all creatures great and small could feel safe and loved, from dogs

and cats to hamsters and lizards. A place where dogs could socialize and play; where pets and parents alike looked forward to a visit; and where each animal’s unique needs would be considered and met.

In 2006, Jay built The Ark, and the animals arrived.

Today, you can find The Ark across the Southeast, with more locations opening soon across the US, including our newest in Salt Lake City set to open in early 2022. Wherever you find us, we are always guided by a strong crew that’s as dedicated to our community’s pets as our own. We pride ourselves on a crew of animal lovers who know how to properly care for pets and create fun for them, guided by experts that are trained thoroughly and thoughtfully. Since day one, our crew has made The Ark what it is.
