A Local Family Business

Since 1998, Rick and Jodi Theis have owned and operated Paws Inn Resort. They live on-site, and together with their four children and a dedicated and experienced staff, they feed, care for, and exercise the guests at PAWS INN RESORT and take care of their own extended family of dogs, cats, birds and other animals that may find their home here. Jodi and Rick actively support the local rescue organizations by providing care and expertise for animals in need of homes.
