Villa La Paws Operation Home for the Holidays

Villa La Paws Pet Resort & Spa, a Phoenix-based, stress-free dog daycare, boarding and grooming facility, is bringing back its annual "Operation Home for the Holidays" program, and expanding to two full months during the holiday season.  The program, which will be offered at its three Valley locations was created to honor those who serve in the military and make the holidays easier on their families by providing free dog daycare and boarding to accommodate holiday travel.  

Through November and December, active or retired service personnel and their immediate families can take advantage of free Villa La Paws dog daycare and overnight dog care while they travel to visit loved ones for the holidays.  Each dog may stay up to five days in either November or December.
