Moncton’s popular 4 Paws Pet Resort’s new owners promise to continue kennel’s strong tradition of excellent customer service

MONCTON, N.B. – One of Greater Moncton’s most popular boarding, pet-sitting, grooming and dog daycare businesses has been sold. Sherri and Jocelyn Longpré purchased 4 Paws Pet Resort Inc. located on Zack Road off Berry Mills Road in late August from former owners Joanne and David LeBlanc, who have decided to retire.

“It’s business as usual at 4 Paws,” says Sherri Longpré, who has taken the next step as a business owner after a long career in animal care, including as an animal control officer in various locations and an employee at a local dog kennel and the Bathurst SPCA. “My husband Jocelyn and I are very excited about this new challenge and will work very hard to continue 4 Paws’ excellent reputation as a first-class dog-boarding, daycare, grooming and pet-sitting facility,” she says.

“We are pet owners ourselves,” she says. “We have five dogs and know how important pets are to their owners. They are part of the family – and we pledge to treat our furry clients as part of our own family.”

Mrs. Longpré will provide day-to-day on-site management of the facility, while Mr. Longpré will continue in his full-time senior position with a national financial institution while also offering administrative support to the business. “We will be maintaining 4 Paws’ dedicated current staff,” Mrs. Longpré says. “We are aiming to make the transfer of ownership as smooth and seamless as possible.”

“As well,” she says, “our family will be living in the beautiful home located on the property. We will be hands-on and on-site year-round.”

During the month of September, the Longprés worked with the former owners during a transition period to ensure everything went smoothly. “We look forward to meeting all of 4 Paws’ clients personally,” Mrs. Longpré said. “Joanne and David have built an excellent business model and we look forward to building on it. We wish them all the best in their well-deserved retirement.”

4 Paws’ 4,800-square-foot facility is located on 4.5 acres of a private, quiet, country setting. Designed with air exchange system, the building provides proper ventilation and fresh air for boarded dogs. There is also an in-floor heating system for the colder months and air conditioning for the warmer months. Fire and security monitoring are also set up for the safety and comfort of canine guests. The facility has four play areas over two acres for dogs to play, socialize and get plenty of exercise. Shelters are also provided for protection against the elements.

“Safety and cleanliness are key at 4 Paws,” Mrs. Longpré says. “We have video monitoring of all play areas and kennels are sanitized daily. This is a business built on trust – and we will work very hard to maintain and build on that trust with our loyal clients.”
