I am so proud to provide the same loving care, in a safe environment, that I want for my own pets.”  Ms. Fodor is also President of Pittsburgh Kennel Association.

 “At Parkway Pet Lodge, we understand that you miss your pet and your pet misses you, but you both cannot always be together. So, we provide your pet with the care and love they need to be happy and comfortable while you are away. We do the loving while you’re away, ” explains Ms. Fodor.

“We have an absolutely incredible staff who are all huge animal lovers and have been hand-selected because they maintain the same ideals I have for animal care,” continues Ms. Fodor. “They adore the pets and give them plenty of love and attention.”
