History of Cottonwood
Deciding to pursue a life long dream of owning his own business, Larry Dvorak left the corporate world, where he worked for more than 27 years. His entrepreneurial spirit led him to open Cottonwood Pet Resort. Established in 1989 by Larry and Jan Dvorak, Cottonwood Pet Resort continues to be owned and managed by the Dvorak Family.
When the Dvoraks opened Cottonwood Pet Resort, and as the name implies, they set a goal to change the way pets are boarded. Word spread pretty fast on the attentive care and service given to pets who stayed at the resort. Today, Cottonwood continues to set the bar high when it comes to caring for its furry four-legged customers.
In 1992, the Dvoraks hired their son Dave to help with operations. Since 1992 the resort has experienced exceptional growth, creating the need to expand. There's been four expansions with the most recent in 2011. The resort now encompasses over 13,000 square feet and sits on 11 park-like acres.
Presently, Cottonwood Pet Resort is owned and operated by Dave Dvorak and employs over 20 full and part time employees.
