A new pet-boarding facility is scheduled to open on Friday, April 1.
Ken and Charmae Scheffer are starting Rover Stay Over at 6451 Hannegan Road near Lynden. The new facility will be taking in dogs for now, but should have an area ready to take in cats by June, said Charmae Scheffer. It will have indoor and outdoor areas for the pets to play and have a more home-like atmosphere, she said.
Both Ken and Charmae grew up in Whatcom County before moving to a different part of the state in 1994 and returning to this area in 2009. The Scheffers have seven children and have had a wide variety of different pets over the years. Several of the children have 4-H and kennel experience.
The facility will have check-in and check-out times seven days a week, offering both daycare and overnight stays. To get details on those times, as well as other information, visit this (link) or call 360-306-5931.
