history of the facility
BOB AND DEBBIE SPENT MANY MONTHS SEARCHING FOR THE PERFECT PROPERTY FOR COUNTRY ACRES, AND THEY FOUND IT IN OUR 6-ACRE SPREAD AT 739 WEIDMAN ROAD.
In the beginning only one kennel wing was built. Besides the outside runs, there were no other fences. Exercise and Playtime did not exist. The receiving office and cattery resided in a converted chicken coupe left behind by the previous owners. . In 1972, a second wing and kitchen were added. In addition, a fence surrounding the entire kennel was constructed, constituting one, huge yard. Hence, Playtime and Exercise were born.
When I took over we desperately needed a new receiving office and cat facility. We felt the old chicken coupe had served out its purpose. As a result, in the fall of 1995, we broke ground and construction began. The beautiful new facility was completed and open to the public in August of 1996. Now our pets have a facility unmatched by any other in the state of Missouri.
