Welcome to my blog! I’m Ann Platt and I have owned the Pets Are Inn Minneapolis South/River South franchise since October 1987.
My love of pets started when I was a child. I lived on a family farm in Faribault, MN, the only daughter with three older brothers. My brothers did not want to “play house” with their “baby sister” so I enlisted the cats, kittens and our family dog to be my playmates.
After a career in banking and sales management, my love of pets and a desire to have my own business led me to Pets Are Inn! My husband, Jim, and I are the franchise owners of Pets Are Inn, Inc.
We are the proud owners of our fourth Miniature Schnauzer, Amy, and Roxie, a Cantel ("can't tell" what she is). Over the years I have experienced a great deal of “on the job training” and have taken classes in dog behavior, animal CPR and nutrition.
I am on the board for PetPac, (a pet professional networking group), the Southdale YMCA and the Edina Noon Rotary Club. And I am all about pets and I look forward to sharing our experiences with all of you fellow pet lovers!
