DOGtropolis is owned by
Pat & Susie Rafferty.
It was inspired by our greatest passions—dogs and family.
Pat is a graduate of Perry Meridian High School, attended Hanover College,
and has been employed by Eli Lilly for over
20 years now. Pat helped build the business from the ground up (literally) and also came up with the name DOGtropolis.
Pat’s son, Grant is our data entry & tech support guy. The regulars like Maggie, Toby & Zoe love him to death. When not in school, golfing, or playing the piano, Grant enjoys spending his extra time helping out at the Indianapolis Animal Care & Control.
After 10 years in the mortgage industry with the same company, I ended up unemployed for the 1st time in my life. It was one of the best things that could’ve ever happened to me. At the time, I knew exactly what I wanted to pursue next. I spent endless hours researching & visiting other Doggy Daycare & Boarding Facilities, and thanks to the support of my family, DOGtropolis became a dream come true in July 2008. It is truly exciting to see just how far we have come.
Both Pat & I have had dogs in our lives for as long as we can remember. Life without a dog in our family is unimaginable.
They bring so much joy, laughter & love
to our family, & I am sure yours do too.
Susie & Pat Rafferty
