Our Story

A Dog's Haven started as a dream. After only a  few short months on night shift at a "real job", owner Kimbrey Havens began dreaming of opening her own dog daycare business. 9 months later, A Dog's Haven opened its doors for the first time.


At A Dog's Haven, we believe dogs deserve to be dogs. We want to be more than just a kennel--we want to be a second home for your dog. Here, our caring and attentive staff help each dog stretch its legs, explore their surroundings, and engage with each other in a safe, healthy way. 



Kimbrey Havens, Owner

 Kimbrey's first  job in high school and through college was at her veterinarian's  kennel. She stayed for over 8 years, graduating upstairs to the hospital  as a veterinary assistant. She moved to Ohio following college  graduation, where she found her passion in the daycare industry.  There was a brief moment in time where Kimbrey thought she might need to do something different, but that didn't last long! A Dog's Haven is Kimbrey's first "child," to which she completely devoted her life. 5 years later, Kimbrey now balances the business with motherhood to a 6-month old little boy. She oversees new client integration, customer service, and staff management. 


Gary Havens, Co-Owner

Gary joined Kimbrey, his youngest daughter, very early on when she brought her business plan to him. Seeking a new path in life, he eagerly stepped up to the challenge. He focuses on administrative needs, staff on-boarding, and customer service.
