 A Country Getaway For Your Pet

Piper Creek Pet Resort is located in the countryside just five minutes south of Red Deer. We are a family owned and operated business that has been serving Central Alberta for the last ten years. At Piper Creek, our goal is to serve the individual needs of our customers while providing kind and friendly service. We are open for boarding 365 days a year and open weekdays for grooming. Our philosophy is built around providing a safe and comfortable place for your pets to stay and provide peace of mind for you while you’re away. At Piper Creek we don’t just look after your pets, we care for them.

Brenda Wyntjes – Owner

Growing up I always had a strong love for all animals from cats and dogs to bunnies, budgies, fish and the list is endless. This led me to work in a vet clinic in High School and then to pursue schooling in Animal Health. Marrying a farmer and living in the country has allowed me to embrace my love for animals. I am fortunate enough to be able to take in animals including rescuing barn kittens and raising miniature ponies for the last 20 years. It was always in the back of my mind to one day open an animal care business and that day came in the Summer of 2006 when I took the leap. We broke ground on the building of Piper Creek that fall and have been growing for the last ten years. I love coming to work each day and meeting all the animals that come to stay with us. I treasure all the relationships that we have been able to create with our valued customers and the personalities of all the animals we get to know.

Caitlin Wyntjes

I have been working with my Mom, Brenda, at Piper Creek since we opened in 2007 when I was 14. We always had animals growing up and my Mom always rescued and took care of animals from orphaned barn kittens to a whole litter of newborn rottweilers. I developed a love for animals over the years and learned how to take care of them and tend to their needs from my Mom.  Our family pets growing up left a huge impact on me and I felt their loss when they passed away and I knew I needed to be around animals. I have two dogs of my own, a shih-tzu puppy named Millie and a senior shih-tzu named Gideon who I recently adopoted from ARTS Senior Rescue. I also recently began fostering rescue animals and I want to do my part in helping animals in need. I love working at Piper Creek because I get to meet new dogs and cats each week and provide comfort and love to them while their owners are away.

Hi my name is Danielle Smith, I’m from Squamish B.C. I am a dedicated animal lover and I’ve been working with dogs for about 6 years now. I was a groomers apprentice for a year and a half and I hope to go to school to become a professional groomer myself. I am also a rescue supporter and I have a few pets myself. One dog named Shelby who is a red tick coonhound and one black cat named Bagheera.

Victoria Redford

I’ve had animals of all sort since I was a kid; bunnies, dogs, hedgehogs, cats, horses. There is a soft spot in my heart for dogs. Currently I have a Lab Border Collie cross, Juniper. She is the light of my life. We enjoy camping and adventuring together. This past winter I started Skijoring and this summer we are dryland training. It’s a BLAST. I am so happy to be part of the Piper Creek Team. The opportunity to work with such an amazing talented group has been more then what I hope for. The health and wellbeing of the dogs always come first, it’s a fun and uplifting environment.

I have always been in love with all animals throughout my life and want to be able to take care of them as much as possible. I currently have a purebred lab named Mitts who is 8 years old and a one year old kitten named Chai my family and I adopted from work. I have been working at Piper Creek Pet Resort for almost two years now and I am so thankful for the experiences and the opportunities I have had the pleasure of being apart of. It is such a fun and caring work environment and I am always delighted when I get the chance to meet new pets, as well as gain relationships with them. I am so blessed to be able to be around so many fantastic dogs and cats each time I come in, being around animals and taking care to me is more like a hobby rather than a job anyway.
