The Pet Rest Inn was built in the early ’70s by Hailey's great grandfather, Pete Dunn. Pete built the grooming and boarding facility for his son, Hailey's great uncle, Roland Dunn. For a time, Roland worked for Dr. Lawrence interning to be a veterinarian. Dr. Lawrence allowed Roland to run the vet clinic, even learning how to perform some surgeries.
Sadly, Dr. Lawrence retired, so Roland taught himself how to groom. His mother, Martha took care of the cats, and Roland cared for the kennel dogs. Roland’s grooming salon was next to the Sanford Mall on Rhinehart Rd.
Hailey's earliest memories of Roland are sitting in his lap, talking about animals. He had many vendors and was generous, allowing Hailey to choose items, like leashes and treats, to bring home for her pets. As an adult, Hailey never stopped loving animals and went to grooming school. After school, Hailey decided to open her own grooming and boarding facility. Roland’s daughter, Sharon supported her and purchased her first grooming table, clippers, and scissors as a gift.

As the business
Hailey has decided to change the name to honor her past family members and continue the family tradition. At Hailey's Collar & Comb we still have clients today that visited the original Pet Rest Inn.
Thank you to the past and future clients who support our family business.
