Hi! We're Tom and Jessica Ellis, owners of Freedom Acres Kennels. We have been involved in animal care and training for many years. Jessica has worked as a veterinary assistant for 10 years and has experience in training. Previous to her veterinary career she was an EMT/medic in the U.S. Army, deploying twice in support of Operation Iraqi and Enduring Freedom. Tom has worked in training of both horses and dogs and has experience in protection dog training. We both love caring for all different sizes and personalities of dogs that come to Freedom Acres! In our spare time, we love to be outside with our kids enjoying our farm and hiking in the Pacific Northwest! We are truly blessed to be able to do what we love for a living.
Freedom Acres Kennels developed out of a goal to care for our family and pets in a more self sufficient, home based manner. Realizing we have a great deal of experience in the dog training and veterinary industries, this business idea grew out of a passion to create a better space to care for dogs than what is currently available. In creating Freedom Acres, we took a different approach to the way we kennel dogs for clients. We believe that each dog has individual personalities and needs and that owners should be able to customize their pets stay in order to maximize their comfort. We believe in delivering this kind of care because it's what we would want for our own dogs!
