Benefits of a Local Kennel: You would pay $45 for a three-day boarding weekend or three week days. Gas would be minimal to bring your animal here and know it was in great hands while you were gone. You can bring the animal Monday through Sunday from 6 a.m.-10 p.m.

Boarding Out of Town: You pay $65 (or more) for the same three days of boarding elsewhere PLUS gas and time spent to take the animal to the facility and back. You have to be three at a certain time and mostdon't allow you to pick up your pet on Sundays unless it is within a specified time frame.

The 3/50 Project: For every $100 spent in independently owned stores, $68 returns to the community through taxes, payroll, and other expenditures. If you spend that in a national chain, only $43 stays here. Spend it online and nothing comes home.
