About Us

Call Us Today for Information and to Make Reservations!

Through the 1960s, Pat Gochenauer channeled her love for animals into work at a local veterinary hospital. Bud Gochenauer was a well-known horse trainer, riding instructor, and horse show judge. At that time, most pet boarding was provided by the veterinary hospitals themselves— but many vets were starting to close the boarding section of their businesses. Pat and Bud stepped up to give the community a quality home-away-from-home for their pets and built Gochenauer Pet Resort in 1971. Since then, the Gochenauer family has been providing the same high-quality, loving care to pets across Lancaster County and beyond. Today, three generations of Gochenauers strive every day to deliver the wonderful care your pets deserve. Every pet who stays with us is considered a member of our extended family.
