International Boarding & Pet Services Association’s First-Ever Ibbys Award Honors K9 Resorts For Setting The Gold Standard In Pet Care Professionalism And Success!

As the pet care industry continues to explode and competition increases, it’s important to recognize those professionals who are setting themselves apart from the crowd,” said Carmen Rustenbeck, IBPSA’s founder and CEO. “Pet owners should have a gold standard to look to when choosing a pet care provider and K9 Resorts is helping set that standard.”

K9 Resorts is the first recipient of this award from IBPSA. With pet professionals from around the world in attendance, the award was announced during a special evening presentation at the Seventh Annual IBPSA Pet Care Services Conference & Trade Show on Oct. 1 at the Renaissance Indian Wells Resort & Spa in California. The award recipients were determined based on a nomination and independent selection committee process.

“I’ve had the privilege of working with Steven and Jason Parker since they hosted their first grand opening,” said Colleen Mahr, Mayor of Fanwood, New Jersey. “They’ve been leaders in the Fanwood community ever since, donating to a variety of local charities and supporting community initiatives, and they have been recognized for years as New Jersey’s top pet resort. Our Fanwood family couldn’t be more proud of K9 for reaching the world stage with this international recognition."
