LAKEWOOD RANCH — Pet Paradise, a Jacksonville-based pet service provider, with everything from boarding and day camp to grooming and veterinary services, has announced plans to open its first location in the Sarasota-Manatee region.
The new location, 10411 Portal Crossing, is in Lakewood Ranch, off of State Road 64 and east of Interstate 75, according to a statement. It’s scheduled to open in July. Pet Paradise’s other locations on Florida’s west coast are in Naples and Wesley Chapel.
“At Pet Paradise, our goal is to create a safe, clean and fun environment for our dog and cat guests and peace of mind for their owners,” Pet Paradise President & CEO Fernando Acosta-Rua says in the release. “Our new resort in Lakewood Ranch is our latest model and features design enhancements and amenities directly related to customer and employee feedback. The added comforts in our new resorts give owners a more personalized experience for their pets.”
