Villa La Paws Pet Resort & Spa, a Phoenix-based, stress-free dog daycare, boarding, and grooming facility, is bringing back its annual “Operation Home for the Holidays” program during the holiday season.

The program was created to honor those who serve in the military and make the holidays easier on their families by providing free dog daycare and boarding to accommodate holiday travel.

Through December, active or retired service personnel and their immediate families can take advantage of free Villa La Paws dog daycare and overnight dog care while they travel to visit loved ones for the holidays. Each dog may stay up to five days at the resort, located at 10640 N. 32nd St.

“We created the program to help the many Arizonians coping with the stress of a spouse, parent, child or sibling serving our country in the armed forces,” said Tom Murray, CEO and president of Villa La Paws. “Making accommodations for their pets will be one less thing they have to worry about when planning holiday travel to visit their loved ones.”
