About Us

The History of Kingsmark Kennels


We are the only kennel in Flagstaff, AZ, that is a part of the American Kennel Club as well as the International Boarding and Pet Care Service Association. Our entire staff goes through independent certification. We stay up to date with current events as well as take pride in sponsoring a lot of Northern Arizona’s adoption and rescue events. We work very closely with Paws for Placement, Rescue Round Up, Rez Rescue and High Country Puppy Rescue helping homeless animals find forever homes.

John J. Kavanagh unexpectedly passed away on August 5th, 2010. We miss him beyond words and know he forever smiles down upon us. His daughter Shannon and son-in-law Rich have now taken over the family business and look forward to continuing the high standards that John had set forth. He definitely put his mark on boarding facilities in Flagstaff, Arizona, and has now given his family a chance to do the same. Thank You to everyone in the community for voting Kingsmark Kennels “The Best Kennel”!
Kingsmark Kennels is the only 2nd Generation boarding kennel in Flagstaff, AZ. Never being sold or turned over to new owners. Over the last 60+ years, our entire family helped make Kingsmark the Best pet care facility available in Northern Arizona.
