Luxury Pet Resorts Serving Ankeny and West Des Moines

Ankeny Bark Avenue Pet Resorts are a dream come true for Haley Aleman and her sister Sydney Sjaardema. Both Haley and Sydney always loved and were drawn to animals. 

“Our dream was to own and operate a high quality, full service pet care facility in our local area. We wanted pet parents to feel connected and know their pet is with a team of genuine pet lovers.”

In 2008, with the incredible support of their family, Ankeny Bark Avenue was born in Ankeny, IA. Mom and dad were instrumental--not only loaning the startup money to help build their first location, but also spending countless hours to make their shared dream the reality that the Bark Avenue Pet Resorts are today.

Due to overwhelming popularity, a second location was needed and Bark Avenue West was created in 2014 to serve the West Des Moines, IA area. Regardless of the location, each pet is treated like family. Both facilities are filled with lots of love and fun.
