Kim and Baily


Kim Hessel is the owner of Room to Run Boarding Kennels and has been working with animals her whole life. She is also the owner and operator of Heaven Can Wait Rescue which has been rescuing dogs and cats in the High River area since 1999. Purchased in 2005, Kim has improved the facility by adding more indoor and outdoor runs as well as expanding the existing runs.

Kim has 4 daily part time staff members, most of whom have been with her since 2005. Each person involved in the daily care of the animals is well-experienced in basic dog training, recognizing signs of sickness in animals, and fully understands that they are responsible for the welfare of the animals while they are in our care. Each staff member brings their unique caring and compassion to work with them each day. Kim lives onsite so the kennel is never left unattended.
