About Us
'Ohana Pet Paradise is owned and operated in Amissville, VA, by Pam and Charlie Stilton, both avid animal lovers. Other facilities may offer similar services, but 'Ohana Pet Paradise comes with a personal touch. 

Having spent a lifetime caring for and rescuing a variety of animals, including their own, and seeing first-hand the various conditions deemed acceptable for “kenneling”, Pam and Charlie were inspired to open their own unique boarding facility in 2007 — a facility that would be a peaceful haven for animals and their owners, offering a more appealing and pet-friendly option than the traditional chain-link and concrete pet boarding format that is so typical of pet boarding facilities.

While many people view pets as "just animals," Pam and Charlie see them differently. They believe it is every person's responsibility to cherish, nurture, and love each and every animal, and it is this belief in the sacredness of all furry lives that is the driving force behind 'Ohana Pet Paradise. 

The 'Ohana Name - People always ask about the ‘ohana name and what it means.

‘Ohana is a Hawaiian word meaning “family.” Years ago, after visiting and falling in love with the islands of Hawaii and the “aloha” spirit of friendship and caring that is so prevalent with its people, it seemed natural to select that word as the driving force behind any of their endeavors having to do with animals.

It is the hope that every dog or cat “guest” (and their human owner) will experience a one-of-a-kind level of caring and love that will bring them back time and time again and leave them knowing that they are part of an extended ‘ohana.

'Ohana Pet Paradise is located in Amissville,VA (just minutes outside Warrenton and Culpeper, VA)
