Best Place To Board Your Pets: Pet Safe Village

Runners Up: All Kreatures, Bluegrass Animal Hospital, Butler Animal Clinic

Soon, instead of trying to find vacation hotels on the road that take pets, Knoxvillians will start pushing Pet Safe to accept humans, too. This is really a resort for pups and kitties, complete with playtime, exercise, pampered grooming, heated floors, and 24-hour care 365 days a year. And these folks are quite civic minded: Besides sponsoring part of the new Young Williams animal facility, they're the masterminds behind Knoxville's first dog park, a great place to be off-lead and meeting new friends—whether you're a dog or an owner.
