New owners Brian Lamberson and Cindy Stancavish plan to reopen Red Oak Country Kennels on May 26.

RED OAK — For pet owners, being able to leave their four-legged babies with someone they trust is a priority. Opened a few years ago as a boarding facility for dogs, Red Oak Country Kennels is trusted by pet owners in Nash County and beyond.

When life events changed the course of owner Greta Small’s goals, she decided to sell the business in hopes that it would continue to operate under new ownership. Locals Brian Lamberson and Cindy Stancavish stepped up to the challenge.

“I was a client of Red Oak Country Kennels,” Stancavish said. “When I heard they closed, I was so upset. Greta was phenomenal at taking care of all the pets she kept. Like other pet owners, I was left wondering where I would be able to take my dog where he would be happy, have plenty of space and I would feel comfortable and confident knowing he was getting the love, care and attention he deserves. After finding out that Greta was selling, it just made sense.”

Lamberson and Stancavish will reopen the kennel for business on May 26, just in time for the Memorial Day holiday.

Small said she’s committed to helping the new owners through the reopening and will remain active in the business during the transition. Stancavish said the business will pick up right where it left off.

“We have a love for animals and for helping people, and we are ready to put our entrepreneurial experience to work,” Stancavish said. “It takes a lot of trust for someone to leave their pet, a member of their family, in the care of someone else. It honors and humbles me that someone will have that trust in us. I have no doubt that pets will be happy with us. The love and personal attention are what will make the difference.” 

Taking care of pets is something the new owners have been doing for many years.

“I have always loved animals, and volunteering in pet adoption and rescue has always been my way of helping animals,” Stancavish said.

She’s involved with Nash County Animal Friends, Promoting Animal Welfare and photographing homeless pets at the Nash County Animal Shelter for adoption and rescue.

“It will be business as usual at the kennels,” she said. “We want people to receive the same great service and care that they have come to love and expect.”

All breeds are welcome and each dog run has its own isolated outdoor space accessible through a dog door. The facility also has a dedicated space for boarding smaller dogs.

In addition to the overnight boarding for which the kennel is known, the new owners will add day boarding for dogs.

“This is different from doggie day care,” Stancavish said. “With our day boarding, dogs will not participate in group play, but they will have their own space where they can enjoy being indoors and outdoors with lots of attention.”

Red Oak Country Kennels is located at 6247 Moore Road (Nashville address) in the Red Oak town limits.
