Meet the Owners
In 2004, the Kumpe’s began the journey of pursuing Chaddie’s dream of what is now Dog Party USA. Priscilla and Ron Kumpe at the time were employed elsewhere, but desired to help Chaddie with her lifelong dream of creating a fun, safe environment where dogs could spend time playing together. All three of their non-profit, teaching, and construction backgrounds, combined with months of researching the pet care industry and visiting boarding and daycare facilities throughout the South, all contributed to important component decisions to keep the dogs comfortable physically and emotionally.
Dog Party USA opened in October 2005 with a state-of-the-art facility and 2.5 acres for dogs to enjoy. Through the years, the facility and staff grew to meet the needs of its customers to provide that safe, efficient environment that Chaddie dreamed of years ago.
Now, Dog Party has the opportunity to foster dogs for area shelters and rescue organizations through its membership in the Better Business Bureau, Chamber of Commerce, Humane Society of the United States, Humane Society of the Ozarks, and Animal League of Washington County. Aside from Dog Party, Chaddie and Priscilla are also members of Fayetteville Downtown Rotary and are active in the community.
