WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE AND WHY SHOULD I TRUST THEM WITH MY DOG?
In the fall of 2003 Ruth Noden started Ruth’s Pet Hotel on five acres of farmland in the beautiful Pemberton Valley. She has been around animals all her life be it bunnies, birds, dogs, cats, or horses. She is an ardent supporter of animal rights, is a dog trainer, has her level one equestrian coaching certificate, and has managed to put animals ahead of people her entire life. She makes the rules at the Hotel and dogs come first.
Jeff Van De Mark joined Ruth and ergo Ruth’s Pet Hotel in 2004. A carpenter by trade he initially looked after the ever-present expansion and maintenance issues at the hotel. In 2006 he quit carpentry all together to aid in the growing business. He has an excellent rapport with all the dogs and a particular compassion with those who are a bit more needy or difficult. Together Ruth and Jeff form an excellent complimentary team to head up the Hotel.
