We want you to feel secure knowing your pet is happy, relaxed, and well supervised by experienced caregivers.... Located on three beautiful acres in oak hammocked Geneva, we live in a modest, clean, pet-oriented home. Our personal menagerie includes two socialized dogs, two dog-savvy cats that live in the non-dog areas, a small flock of chickens and some adorable Nigerian Dwarf goats...of course, the chickens and goats live outside in their own digs!
This is Dana's full time vocation, and it allows her to continue her avocation as assistant director of a local dog rescue. We have an average of seven dogs in our home at any given time. However, with our animal experience, and the wide open spaces we have available, the dogs seem to really enjoy the company. Dogs are given group and individual attention so that none feel left out.
We engage in free play, and the dogs have access to our couches, many comfy beds throughout the house, or crates if they are comfortable in them. As longtime rescuers and animal people, we know what makes a pet happy, and will do what it takes for them to relax and enjoy their stay.
Pictures and/or videos are provided to you via text or email while you are gone, and updates are provided as requested. We are reachable by phone, text, or email, and try to return communications within the hour whenever possible.
Whatever your pet needs, VanZoo can do it for you!

We generally do not accept unneutered males as guests. Their higher excitability and tendency toward obsessive behavior has prompted this change, as a courtesy to our other guests. Intact females are still welcomed.
We require meet and greets for all dogs over 40 pounds. Dogs that exhibit unsocialized behavior do not do well in our environment. We will, however, visit them in THEIR homes. We adore your dog, but we love ours, too... and we no longer wish to put them at risk. A dog that wouldn't dream of harming another animal under his owner's supervision may not behave similarly in our environment. So, we'll be MORE than happy to set up visits in your home if you are within 15 miles of our home.
In order to maintain a comfortable schedule for the dogs, we will no longer be able to facilitate drop offs or pickups after 6pm. Please arrange your bookings accordingly. Emergency situations will, of course, be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
We operate on a 24 hour clock, similar to a hotel. If you drop off in the morning, we expect a morning pickup. If the dog remains in our care until evening, , an additional day care fee will be charged.
Existing Apopka clients - VanZoo has relocated to Geneva, FL and is continuing service there. Free pickup and delivery is available to you... we love you and don't want to lose you!!
