Countryside Kennels has been owned and operated by Cathy Isherwood since the fall of 1993. Cathy has always had a passion for animals that started with pet guinea pigs and mice that she had when she was a small child.
Since then, Cathy and her crew have cared for thousands of dogs of all ages and sizes, from 8 weeks old to 17 years old and from tiny Chihuahuas to Great Danes.
In her first year of operation, Cathy purchased a cat boarding building that she had moved here from the outskirts of Maple Ridge. Many cats have enjoyed their stay at Countryside Kennels and enjoy the outside perch of the individual cat quarters.
In 2008 Countryside Kennels became the Poundkeeper for the Cities of Port Coquitlam and Pitt Meadows. At that time, the SPCA withdrew services from those two municipalities.
