New home for Meadow Brooke Kennels
Meadow Brooke Kennels is now open for business in a new location and with new owners. The kennel was started several years ago by Lee and Karen Omberg, offering boarding for dogs and cats. They went out of the business recently when they bought a resort on Devil's Lake, and sold their home, at which they also had their kennel. Val (Bachmann) Schultz helped the Ombergs at their kennel. She and her new husband Dan decided to purchase the business from the Ombergs, and move it to their home on Highway 228.
