The Pet Space Experts: Pet Resorts for Sale, Kennels, & Dog Daycares

Our roots run deep in the pet resort for sale, kennel and dog daycare space. PET|VET's CEO, Teija Heikkilä, has been in the industry for over 30 years and has experienced first-hand the tremendous growth and expansion in pet care driven by how a pet's role in families has changed. Additionally, the consumer's expectation of care has increased, causing all pet-related businesses to evolve and mature. A pet care facility today is quite different from the 70's!

PET|VET started out as National Kennel Sales & Appraisals in 2008. Initially, we were strictly focused on the sale of pet care facilities & kennels; we have since expanded into both sell and buy side engagements, lending referrals and consultations to pet resorts & kennels, dog daycares, veterinary practices, retail and grooming shops.

We interviewed a local broker but the moment we met Teija at Pet Vet, we knew she was it. Her knowledge of the pet industry, how these transactions work and what we should be looking for as sellers, were obvious from the start.

Getting solicitation calls from corporate / consolidator buyers? We have strong relationships with all national corporate buyers and our listing process ensures that your business gets optimal exposure to all buyer groups and receives offers that recognize the full value of your business. We confidentially present your business to all of the various consolidator companies that are active in acquiring private pet care facilities; our structured process is the only way to 100% ensure you get maximum price. We are the antidote to dealing with a corporate buyer by yourself that is never in the seller's best interest - only in the corporate buyer's.

Prefer to sell to an individual vs. a corporate company? Our access to the private buyer market is unparalleled. We maintain a proprietary buyer database of financially qualified prospects actively seeking opportunities to invest in the pet care space.  These are not tire kickers!

We maintain confidentiality throughout the process.

Not ready to sell or not sure if the timing is right?  We offer value enhancement programs that detail exactly where and how to focus your business model to increase its value for a lucrative exit in the future.

Our industry expertise is not only a game changer, it's invaluable!
