About Us

In March 2007, owner and animal enthusiast Ginger Axley opened Wagg-n-Purr Retreat with one simple mission: to provide dogs and cats with the highest quality of pet grooming and boarding services available. Today Ginger continues to offer pets a safe, clean, and friendly environment to stay while their owners are away.
Located in Athens, TN, Wagg-n-Purr Retreat offers top-notch pet boarding and professional grooming services.
We also sell a variety of healthy foods, treats, bedding, pet supplies, toys, and more.

Our daycare and boarding facility is securely fenced in and supervised because we strongly believe animals need space to play and exercise. Your dogs can say goodbye to the leash and enjoy exploring the natural beauty around them.

We strive to create a fun, friendly, caring environment where pets receive the same amount of love and affection you give them at home.


“Excellent people, service and care. My GP has been going for over a year now, started at 5 months. She would not be the sweet, loving, social dog that she is without wagg-n-purr.” – Susan R.

Wagg-n-Purr Retreat is a truly remarkable place that has become our dogs’ second home. The staff’s genuine love and care for our furry friends put our minds at ease every time we leave them there.

From the moment we step in, our dogs are greeted with warmth and affection, and we can tell they enjoy their time at the retreat. The facilities are clean, safe, and well-maintained, providing a comfortable environment for our pups.

The personalized attention our dogs receive, along with regular updates and pictures, shows how much Wagg-n-Purr Retreat values the well-being of their four-legged guests.

I’ve been taking my dog here for many years to get him groomed and boarded. The whole staff at Wagg-n-Purr are friendly and take great care of the animals! The owner is very sweet! I even got my mom to start taking her dog there and she loves it too! Highly recommend.” – Holly F.
