Welcome to Wil-A-Lo Kennels

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. Our kennel manager, Morgan, has worked with animals in various capacities for the last 10 years. Our other team members, Sydney, and Audrey, are avid animal lovers.
