HappyPawz was created over 20 years ago under the name of Bribren Boarding Kennels. Brian and Brenda Punnett built the kennels and cattery with a view to provide an excellent pet service to the Manawatu that was missing. Through the years they touched many peoples' lives with their kindness and dedication to the pets left in their care. This has resulted in a reputable boarding facility with loyal clientiele.
The current owners Cindy and Kelvin Lowndes have taken over Bribren in August 2008. They have renamed the business to HappyPawz to carry on with the excellent image that Brian and Brenda created over the years.
HappyPawz is a family orientated business dedicated to the welfare and happiness of cats and dogs left in their care. The main objective is to give the animals a "home away from home" atmosphere, with loves and cuddles, exercise and most of all a stress free environment.
