Posh Pet Place Will Open in December
Four-legged Over the Mountain residents will soon have a new place to get a resort-style experience.
Merritt Milam has announced plans to open Wags ‘n Whiskers Comprehensive Pet Care at 2804 Crescent Ave. in downtown Homewood in December.
The business will offer dogs and cats an experience “defined by compassionate care, positive reinforcement and unrivaled comforts, technologies and conveniences,” said Milam, who is also the head trainer.
“We wanted to provide a one-stop shop for pet owners where they could find the highest quality pet services and products, and so Wags ’n Whiskers was born,” Milam said. “We believe pets are family, and that is how owners can expect their animals to be treated while they are visiting or staying at our facility. Whether their pets are boarding or at our fun-filled daycare, pet owners can rest assured that their animals are in loving, compassionate and experienced hands.”
Milam, an animal behavior college-certified dog trainer, said she has been caring for animals in the Birmingham metro area for several years and is looking forward to opening her business and joining the Homewood community.
“It always has been my greatest passion to foster stronger relationships between pet owners and the animals they love,” Milam said. “We are excited to become a part of Homewood and to showcase the benefits of positive reinforcement training in the Birmingham area.”
Wags ’n Whiskers is an all-indoors and climate-controlled facility.
Other amenities include luxurious boarding suites for dogs and cats. The suites include spacious accommodations, soothing music and video monitoring so owners can check in on their pets while they’re away. Additionally, Wags ’n Whiskers daycare has a low camp counselor-to-pet ratio, which Milam said ensures more time can be devoted to each animal and the overall safety of each pet.
Milam said Wags ‘n Whiskers is now taking holiday boarding requests at email@example.com. For more information, visit wagshomewood.com.
