Mayor Cathy Carlat recently unveiled her most recent selections for business and restaurant of the month.
The recipients for the month of May are Every Doggie Has Its DayCare and Wild Horse West.
As longtime animal lovers, Every Doggie Has Its DayCare owners David and Sandy George opened their business more than five years ago to serve the ever-growing demand for pet boarding. They wanted to create an environment where families felt comfortable leaving their beloved pets, while creating a fun and safe place for dogs to receive the care they deserve.
Families can bring their pets for the day as a fun place to socialize while mom or dad are away at work, or they may stay overnight for short-term or long-term boarding. Each visiting dog is offered one of the 38 private boarding suites, which includes a raised bed and artwork. Families are also encouraged to bring a special blanket or toy to make their pets feel at home.
The Georges offer a 3,500-square-foot playroom that has been carefully and safely designed for dogs. The facility includes separate small and large dog areas, supervision from a trained dog lover, regulated cooling and heating, and a large indoor play area with open access to a shaded and enclosed outdoor play space.
Wild Horse West owner Steve Harmon purchased his site, located three miles south of the lake on Lake Pleasant Parkway, 36 years ago, and has been steadfast to preserve the unique character of the property. Arizona- and western-themed decor adorn the walls, while classic wood picnic tables draped in checkered cloths encourage the sense of community of which Wild Horse West is known.
Wild Horse West serves locally sourced brew and comfort food, and features a menu that includes items like the Chili Size Burger, Philly cheesesteak and kosher beef frank.
Wild Horse West also stocks a variety of bait and fishing supplies at its bait shop, as Lake Pleasant is just a few miles away.
