Animal Lovers

Meet Jerry & Latecia - As the owners of Thunder Valley Kennels, God instilled in each of us the love of animals at an early age.  We both grew up on dairy farms and learned what it meant to take great care of animals as well as the hours involved.

Thru the obedience classes we previously offered, people would ask where they could take their furry friend while needing to be away.  With enough asking, we sensed a need, built a kennel facility in 2003, and have been busy from the start.

We now share this life adventure with our two beautiful daughters.  

Our personal pet population includes:

Nitro - Yorkie

Cats - Annie, Leo, Tigress, Sully, Snuggles and Sidekick

Quaker Parrot - Cheekie


Latecia is the owner and is main caretaker of the kennel.  I consider it a big responsibility to care for other people’s animals but also consider it a privilege.

Putty is an Akita and has a very aloof personality.

Christina has been working with me for almost 7 years now and has been a certified groom for 5 years.  She also helps care for the dogs and manages the kennel for those times my family is away.
