Welcome to Country Lane Kennel where we let the country bring out the best in your pet!

We are located on a secluded 50 acres, at the end of a dead-end road in Forestville, Ontario between Turkey Point and St. Williams.

My family and I live on the premises, so we are always close by to answer to your pet’s needs.

Since I was a little girl, I have always had a passion for animals. It all started on the farm, while walking my German Shepard we would bring home baby bunnies, snakes, owls, and black birds that I had found. Even back then I would love to take care of them and nurse them back to health, with the help of my mom and dad. My mom on a 4 hour bottle feeding schedule for the bunny, and my dad digging up the WHOLE yard for dew worms to feed the black bird. I am sure that is where my love for animals has come from! Their dedication and devotion to animals!

Now I have a farm of my own which has had chickens, horses, dogs, and cats.

I have now retired, after being a Personal Support Worker for 24 years, taking care of the elderly and the sick.  I have learned even more about compassion, dedication, patience, and love than I thought was possible. I have decided to carry on with those life lessons full-time in the animal world.

I devote myself to the care and needs of each and every pet that comes through my doors at Country Lane Kennel.
