The Animal Playhouse
The Animal Playhouse (TAP) is owned and operated by the same caring and dedicated owners as Southtowns Animal Hospital, Dr. Kim Jacobi and Kevin Jacobi. The Animal Playhouse understands your pets are an important part of your family and we give them the comfort they deserve!
We dedicate ourselves to making sure your pet receives the most comfortable, safe and fun visit. Whether you are heading out of town for a few days or longer, or if you are bringing your dog in for a day of play, they will be thoroughly pampered.
Our facility has multiple size suites for both dogs and cats to ensure the ultimate relaxation. Our facility is also located next door to Southtowns Animal Hospital in case veterinary care is needed!
Our staff follows strict cleaning procedures and provides the high standard of care you've come to know and expect.
Come visit and see for yourself! Your pets will thank you!
Meet Our Staff
My name is Amanda and I am the manager at The Animal Playhouse. I have had a passion for animals since I was little. I love playing with the dogs and giving cuddles to our cat boarders. You can find me here running around making sure all our protocols are being followed for a fun and safe environment for your fur baby!
My name is Julia, I am the receptionist and in charge of The Animal Playhouse Instagram. I love seeing how excited the dogs are when they first come through the doors in the morning. I have also spent a lot of time in the daycare yards and have come to love all the dogs and got to know them very well! You can find me capturing all the craziness that goes on in the yards and up front answering all your questions.
Hello! My name is Julianna, I am one of the daycare attendants at TAP. I have always been so passionate about dogs, ever since I can remember. I love all of the dogs that come to daycare and those who board also. I enjoy making a unique bond with each and every one of them and becoming forever friends. I wish there was more time in a day to play with the dogs here. Thank you for bringing your fur babies here
Hi, my name is Kaitlyn and I am The Animal Playhouse trainer. I have been training dogs since the age of 8 years old. I went to Canisius college to study animal behavior, ecology, and conservation. The thing I love most about training is the relationship that grows between both you and the dog. Other than that, I love singing, working with my 4H group, and going camping!
Hi! My name is Madison. I am a daycare attendant here at The Animal Playhouse. I have always loved dogs and enjoy playing with them. I enjoy meeting new dogs and getting to know all the dogs here at daycare. I have three dogs of my own; two labs and one golden retriever. My favorite dog breed is golden retriever but I have always wanted a really big dog. Thank you for bringing your dogs to daycare!
My name is Michelle and I am one of the play yard attendants!
