Cottonwood Kennels is located on a small farm, which is home to several very friendly farmyard animals. There are ducks, chickens, peacocks and sheep. There's Willie Nelson, the big boy of the sheep, and Gus and Woodrow, the 'Texas Rangers', our youngest sheep. We also have Nicholas the handsome alpaca and Elvis the pompous peacock. See more barnyard pictures. We are all about the pet-to-person connection. We believe that cats and especially dogs desire to be with people more than anything else. That's why they gave up the wild thousands of years ago to be by our side. You will not find gimmicky substitutes for human interaction here. You will find a very large staff of big-hearted, dedicated, hard-working people.
