Wil-A-Lo Kennels-Pet boarding in Des Moines

About Us

Our Mission

It is Wil-A-Lo Kennels’ mission to be a socially and environmentally responsible company that is dedicated to providing exceptional care to our clients, pets, and community in the capacity of a locally-owned pet boarding facility.

About the Kennel

Wil-A-Lo Kennels was founded by Louise Wilson in 1950. Wil-A-Lo is an anagram of her name. Since that time, there have been four previous owners, the Dupuy’s being the fifth. They purchased Wil-A-Lo in August of 2012 and have made it their mission to make Wil-A-Lo the best boarding facility in Des Moines.  

Our Staff

Our owner, Dr. Tera Dupuy, is a veterinarian treating dogs, cats, and other small animals. Staff members, Sydney, Audrey and Katherine have years of experience caring for dogs and cats both professionally and personally. Katherine is also a talented pet stylist.
