As part of our ongoing "Getting to Know Your Local Businesses" series, this week we sat down with  Jennifer Colmenares,  owner of Kingwood Pet Resort!


Tell us a bit about your business: What does your business offer and how long have you been around?
At Kingwood Pet Resort, we're all about providing top-notch care for your furry family members. With roots dating back to 1979 as Kingwood Kennels, our passion for animals runs deep. Whether your pet needs a cozy indoor/outdoor stay, pampering from our experienced groomer, or personalized attention in our stay-n-play daycare, we've got you covered. Plus, our innovative P.A.W.S. Dog training approach ensures a harmonious bond between pets and their owners, making every interaction a rewarding experience.

How did you decide to get involved in this line of work? How did the business get started?
Our journey into this line of work was inspired by a family friend who also happened to be the local veterinarian. They saw the potential in our land and suggested we build a kennel. Fueled by our entrepreneurial spirit, my parents laid the foundation for Kingwood Kennels back in 1979, where every furry guest received the same love and care as our own pets. Fast forward to Valentine's Day 2023, myself, Jennifer Colmenares, along with my brother Rome and father Carl, came together to continue the family legacy, ensuring that pets are cherished and cared for like they're our own while their owners are away.

Tell us a couple things you are proud of about your business. What are you known for? What separates you from the competition?  We take immense pride in our prime location nestled within 5 acres of the picturesque Kingwood community, providing a serene and spacious environment for our furry guests. What truly sets us apart is our extensive animal expertise, boasting over 120 years of collective knowledge in animal care. With backgrounds in veterinary medicine and pioneering initiatives like the Pet Safe program for airlines, we've consistently set industry standards, ensuring the utmost safety and comfort for every pet entrusted to our care. Since 1979, we've been honored to serve our community, treating every pet that walks through our doors as part of our extended family at Kingwood Pet Resort.

What is your favorite part of running this business?
My favorite part of running this business is undoubtedly the animals! Growing up, they were our sanctuary, and now, they're at the heart of everything we do. We're deeply passionate about education, advocating for holistic lifestyles and sustainability. For me, it's about fostering that profound connection between humans and animals, which is why I'm dedicated to transforming how people interact with their pets through my P.A.W.S. philosophy. It's all about intuitive communication, holistic care, and building a supportive community. At Kingwood Pet Resort, we believe it truly takes a village to ensure our canine companions are happy, healthy, and well-mannered.

Who is your target market or ideal client/customer? Our target market and ideal clients are pet owners who view their furry companions as cherished members of their family. Whether they're busy professionals, frequent travelers, or simply seeking top-notch care for their pets, our services cater to those who prioritize the well-being and happiness of their animals. We welcome clients who value personalized attention, holistic care, and a nurturing environment for their beloved pets while they're away.

Can you tell us something about yourself as the business owner? What is your background? Kingwood Pet Resort owner Jennifer Colmenares shares "My background is deeply rooted in a lifelong love for animals. Growing up surrounded by the furry residents of Kingwood Kennels, I developed a profound understanding of animal care and behavior from an early age. My journey led me to pursue studies in veterinary medicine, where I gained invaluable insights into the health and well-being of our furry friends. Additionally, I've been passionate about holistic lifestyles and sustainable practices, which are integral values reflected in our business philosophy at Kingwood Pet Resort. My dedication to fostering a deeper connection between humans and animals has inspired the development of our unique P.A.W.S. philosophy, which emphasizes intuitive communication, holistic care, and community support. As a business owner, I'm committed to providing exceptional care for every pet that comes through our doors, ensuring they feel loved and cherished like family."

How do you see your business growing and improving over the next couple of years?

In the next couple of years, we're excited to expand our services to better cater to our furry guests' needs, perhaps introducing new enrichment activities and specialized programs. We'll also focus on staying at the forefront of animal care technology and fostering community partnerships to support the re-homing crisis here in Texas. Our goal is to maintain the warm, welcoming atmosphere that sets us apart while continually improving the quality of care we provide.
