Longview was founded in 1956 in the same location that it is today, then known as Vincent Kennels. Consistent with the Vincents’ tradition, the owners have always resided on the property. Throughout the years, Longview has grown to 2 large dog kennel buildings, an all purpose dog grooming salon & a separate cat boarding area. The previous owners, Chris and Cherie Noullet managed Longview from 2001-2019. They lovingly passed the business on to Mike and Amanda Russo, the current managers, in February 2019. Amanda worked at Longview as a teenager, and discovered her passion for petcare, inspiring her to return to Longview more than a decade later as a manager. Mike and Amanda have big plans for Longview, including renovations, staff training, and other improvements.
