The Animal Inn has been serving your pets since 1994. Located in Carlisle, PA, we are just a short drive from Boiling Springs, Mechanicsburg, Newville and the West Shore.

Keeping the business in the family, in 2016 Rosie McCrea took over ownership of The Animal Inn. Rosie grew up locally and has worked at The Animal Inn since 2007. Starting as a Kennel Attendant, Rosie has developed the skills to run and manage The Animal Inn having also contributed to the business as a Bather,  Groomer and Manager. Rosie holds her Bachelor’s Degree in Animal Science and Industry from Kansas State University.

Rosie is joined in managing The Animal Inn by her husband, Seth Stover. In 2023, Seth joined The Animal Inn team in an official capacity after almost 10 years in Special Education with a focus in Adventure and Experiential learning. Seth holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Sports and Recreation Management with a Business Minor. Greer, Rosie and Seth’s daughter, relishes her role as a Junior Kennel Attendant alongside the family dogs, Tuf and Tripp.

Our family owned business prides itself on keeping a safe and social environment for the furry members of your family; we love them as if they are our own. Our facility is cleaned and disinfected daily and we require current Bordetella, Distemper and Rabies vaccinations to keep the environment as healthy as possible for your pets.

We strive to keep your dogs:

  • Entertained and engaged with lots of playtime
  • Socialized with similar size breeds and temperaments
  • Exercised about 20 minutes every hour
  • Enriched with human interaction
  • Provided with enrichment opportunities to grow mentally and physically

We appreciate you entrusting us with your family members and giving us the opportunity to get to know and love them. We love what we do and we’re happy to care for your pets as if they were our own.

Best of 2023
