Love love love this place!!!! Chase and his team are the very best! They have been boarding my 2 babies..Kai and Kona for several weeks now due to a delay on closing on our home. They make sure my kitties are happy and never lonely! Thanks so much to the crew and Chase for being the best in Panama City! If you need grooming or boarding definitely use these wonderful folks! You won't be sorry! Much love to Animal Friends!!!!

My 3 dogs are excited when I bring them to Animal Friends. Great price and quality grooming done by the groomer Chase.
I have boarded with them multiple times and the girls in boarding did amazing job with my dogs. They sent me videos and pictures and they washed my dogs without a charge. Thank you Savannah and Melanie.

I took my dog Gary in to be boarded and he also received grooming while he was there. I am more than satisfied with the experience we had with Animal Friends. Chase was very professional and responsive to all of my questions and concerns. I was very comfortable leaving my dog in his caer. I definitely will be using Animal Friends regularly and I highly recommend them for anyone who is looking for boarding or grooming for their fur babies.

They were fantastic!! I needed a last minute groom done for my Maltese baby. They squeezed me in and were so accommodating. My dog won't look like a crazy pup in our Christmas photos! Thank you so much Animal Friends! Will definitely be back.

I'm glad I came across Animal Friends. I couldn't afford daycare at Naju but with my job I had no choice. My coworker told me about them and they do so much for my dogs and it's affordable. I recommend these guys for everything! My dogs love being there everyday and my dogs don't smell bad when I pick them up like it did when I used naju.
The owner Chase and the girls working there clearly loves animals and I won't take my pets anywhere else. Thanks Animal Friends!!!

I get real nervous about trying new groomers... I'm so thankful for Animal Friends! They work with my schedule to get my dog in for her full groom. They do fantastic work and their prices are great! I highly recommend them.

Amanda A.

I love this place. The owner was very straight forward with explaining the process. The place was clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. I would return here for future visits with my dog.

Melissa J.

Very professional, and quick service! Will definitely make it a regular spot for my fur children! Highly recommend! We are so glad to have this local business!

Melvin G.

Wonderful establishment! Kind, gentle, and precise. Mr. Auggie hates getting his nails done, but Chase made it so easy on him. His nails have never looked better and he didn't freak out at all!
Tired of the big corporate shops? Go local and go with Animal Friends!!

Samantha L.

I was super nervous to take Nah Nah and drop him off anywhere leave him, he has never been to the groomer... Animal Friends did and amazing job on my baby and eased my fears! Nah Nah will not go anywhere else.

Jannie D.

Holly L.

Jasmine had her first appointment last week and I couldn't be more impressed!
Will definitely be a regular client

Dana O.

I been using Animal Friends for couple years for grooming and daycare. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and animal lovers. My yorkies haircuts are perfectly done every time and my baby's always smell great. I won't take my dogs anywhere else.
The boarding is amazing and cheap for what it includes.

Marissa G.

This was my first time I ever boarded a pet and I couldn't be more happy with the care they provided for my puppy. I was very nervous because he wasn't fixed and I felt that he wasn't going to get the attention he needed and I was very wrong. They spent a lot of one on one time loving and playing with my puppy! He was in good hands and definitely a place I would recommend!

Jasmine W.

Took my precious baby to get groomed. We got a bath, nails trimmed, ears, pads and teeth cleaned and a deshedding treatment. It took a reasonable amount of time, the price was good, and she looked great when I picked her up. They were so good with her and were willing to fill me in on little details because I was a nervous mom. I usually groom her myself, but since that's not an option right now I had to drop her off somewhere. And I'm so glad I chose them!

Laura A.

The crew at AnimalFriends is the best! My pup, Dale, loves going to daycare there and I know I don't have to worry about him while I am at work. He plays hard and gets the attention he needs, instead of sitting home all day. So thankful to have found AnimalFriends!!

Martha G.

I was recommended by serval families in my neighborhood to use animal friends on transmitter for grooming and daycare for my dogs.
I gave animal friends a try and I loved there service and the staff!
The groomer was a nice man that my dogs loves.

I bring them for daycare every morning before work and my dogs love it.

I've been going to animal friends for a year now and have always been very happy with both the grooming and service. I have a special needs dog (sever heart condition ) and not only is Chase willing to groom him when most groomers would not even consider it, but has made special accommodations to groom him quickly and safely to reduce his stress. He is the only groomer I trust.

Kimberly F.

I love that when you go into Animal Friends and they ask who your dogs are, they know exactly which ones they are. They share details about what your dogs have done while you left them in their care. Its personal. They really care about your dogs!

Aillison G.

The staff is always kind and courteous and the groomer listens to what I ask him to do and he makes sure I am happy with the results. My pup is groomed perfectly! I am beyond pleased with Animal Friends grooming salon!!

Jade H.

We've taken our small dog Seymour here several times and they've always done us good. Animal Friends Dog Grooming is both fast and gentle.

Rodney H.

The staff are very friendly and truly care about my dogs. The suites are spacious and clean. Most importantly, my dogs love it here. I trust my dogs are in good hands with animal friends.

Hailey G.

They took care of my little guy with his first grooming trip. Clean hair cut and smells amazing! Thank you so much!

Helga M.

For all cat owners, this is the place to go! My long haired Persian cat is prone to mats that are close to her skin and too risky for me to remove. Animal Friends always does an amazing job and with so much care. Couldn't recommend this place more!

Elizabeth H.

I always take my dog Teddy to get his hair cut with Chase and he never fails me. Leaves my teddy looking like an actual Teddy bear , I recommend coming here without a doubt!

Kimmie O.

They have wonderful and affordable day care! My schedule can be very rough with the long hours I work, and these guys are so flexible and reliable. Melanie and Savanna take such good care of my rotten baby. Thank you Animal Friends.

April P.

My doggie Daisy loves it when she goes to Animal Friends. The owner Chase does the grooming and does an excellent job. The girls working there with him are super helpful and nice to my sweet Daisy.
I highly recommend for grooming!

Jennifer S.

Chase the groomer did a great job on our shih tzu. He really cares about our little fella. He is not the easiest to handle but Chase got to know him and did a wonderful job grooming him. He is already set up for the next visit at Animal Friends. It's nice to find a groomer who knows what works and cares so much.

Dianna W.

I was able to book a last minute groom with Animal Friends for my Yorkie. They were very flexible and gave my baby a great haircut. I'm glad I found them and will definitely be back! Really friendly staff too!

Parisa T.

We boarded our two puppies for a weekend, and they have quite a bit of separation anxiety. We had never left them before so I was quite nervous, however the owner was very accommodating and FaceTimed me and sent multiple video updates throughout the weekend. I'm so thankful for the good experience, and will definitely be using animal friends again for any future boarding needs.

Brooke P.

I am new to the area and needed a groomer for my cat. I saw the good reviews and made an appointment. My cat got the best grooming he has ever had. Animal Friends staff is amazing. I will be going back often.

Linda W.

Today I brought both of my dogs in for grooming. The people that work there are very kind and loving to the animals. The store is immaculate and both of my dogs looked beautiful when they were done. This place is fantastic and I would not go any where else. My groomer was Chase and he is the best!

Katrina W.

We took our dog Maya here for the first time after hearing great reviews about Chase and he did not disappoint. He was attentive, transparent, and did a great job. We will definitely be returning .

Michael T.

Had a wonderful experience. Staff/owner were very friendly and remained very professional. Was very knowledgeable and helpful. Felt super comfortable leaving my granddog Teddy there and was overwhelmed with delight when Teddy was all cleaned up. Wish I would have taken before and after pics you would not believe how good she looked after....will be returning and most definitely would recommend to all my family, friends & anyone else in search of a safe, clean, friendly, get 'er done, not expensive dog groomer! Thanks guys I loved the way she looked!!

Renae C.

I was visiting from out of town and brought my fur baby in. They were so kind, professional, and did a great job. Anytime we're in town, we will be coming in for a cut. Thanks guys.

Kay F.

Great experience with the salon and spa reservation for our pup. He looked great and came out all smiles/wags! Always have had exceptional experiences with Animal Friends Pet Care. The staff is very friendly and the service they provide is always consistently extraordinary. I feel comfortable leaving my pet with the competent, knowledgeable and kind employees at Animal Friends.

Zoey G.

We've used Animal Friends now for several years to board our dog, Autumn, and love them! Even if it's been a while, they always know Autumn, and treat her with so much love and care. We first started using them because we found they were the best value, but now can't imagine using anywhere else! Highly recommend!

Larry C.

Let me start by saying we tried several groomers. They just didn't get it ..this team at Animal Friends, get it . I have to say they are just amazing!!! The best in Panama City, no doubt! Their compassion, love, experience and continued training is what sets them apart!!!

Julie E.

The grooming is very good quality work and surprisingly very affordable compared to places I have previously tried locally.
I also use animal friends for boarding/daycare. The boarding is clean and spacious. They don't let dogs mix for safety reasons and I'm a fan of that that. I used animal friends for boarding during Christmas and the owner Chase personally sent me pictures via text daily of my Bella girl. I love this company!!

Paula G.

Absolutely amazing staff. I was concerned that my elderly Boxer would not do well in a new environment and I was invited to step into the back and stay with her while she was groomed. The staff worked to make sure she was at home and comfortable. Wonderful prices too. Will refer everyone I can to this place.

Christopher W.

I didn't need an appointment. They took my dog right in. Very friendly atmosphere and very professional. The cost was affordable and my dog was finished in no time. I explained to the receptionist exactly how I wanted my dog groomed and the groomer did an amazing job. My baby dog looks so handsome thanks to Animal Friends. I totally recommend taking you animal to them. You won't be disappointed.

Deb D.

Today was our first time at Animal Friends, but it's the best grooming experience we've had in three years with our cocker spaniel! Chase is wonderful, and he did an excellent job grooming our shy pup! We will absolutely be back to see Chase for all our dog grooming needs from now on! So glad we finally found a place that both us and our dogs are comfortable with!

Jessica F.

My puppy is so precious looking! I have a sweet golden girl. I bring her nearly every 3 weeks and she's gorgeous every time! She smells and looks amazing for a long time. Thank you!

Kristen M.

We have been using Animal Friends faithfully since 2018. We tried many others with substandard results. We have a Giant Schnauzer/Lab and a Catahoula Cur. Their a hand full! Chase and his staff are Exceptional with grooming, bathing and nail trims. They really care for our kids and it shows! They are by far the Best in Bay County a 10 star service! Thank You!

Kathleen B.

Very happy! Our normal place cancelled our appointment to get our dog groomed due to the social distancing going on. We called Animal Friends to see if they could fit us in. Without an appointment, they squeezed our dog in today. They did a great job grooming our baby! My wife commented it's better than the other place.

Thank you Animal Friends for squeezing us in without an appointment and doing a perfect grooming job on our dog!

You have a new customer!

Brent S.

Chase and his team are the best around. He has managed to befriend our stubborn Siberian Huskies who will not permit anyone else to groom them. Top notch service every-time. We have been using Animal Friends since 2016. Highly recommended if you're looking for personalized service with consistent results each visit.

Doug M.

I love Animal Friends! I can't even think of words to thank them. My dog was so matted, couldn't see, and just miserable because she had not had a haircut in a while. They did the BEST job ever!! The best part about it is no matter how your pet looks the price NEVER changes! I will never take Annie anywhere else. I am truly thankful! For the person that groomed her today, THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! I love you guys! Also they will try their best to fit your dog in around your schedule. Best dog groomer in Panama City FL hands down! You have me as a customer for life! Thanks again.

Allison R.

Absolutely 5 star. Took such wonderful care of my girl. I was weary to bring her to a new salon being that my girl is blind. But they went above and beyond, gave her all the love. This made her comfortable and she had the best grooming experience she's ever had! Sent her home with a cute bandanna too

Breanna C.

I was able to get a reservation on short notice, and they did a good job trimming our Corgi. Would have been 5 stars if they offered more activities for the boarded doggies. Will definitely use them again for grooming.

Edit: after reading the owner's response I've upped my rating from 4 to 5 stars, as their reasons for not having activities is completely valid.

Ethan H.

My dog has been getting groomed here 4 years now. My dog loves Chase the groomer and looks perfect after every visit! I highly recommend this place for grooming and the dog boarding service they have.

Rachel M.

I just want to give a shout out to Animal Friends. Ziggy, my beautiful labradoodle came in yesterday to get his first hair cut since I adopted him last September. He has a LOT of hair needless to say. The groomer Chase did exactly what I wanted, He even saved some of his hair so he didn't look like a chicken! He looked great and is SO happy to have that winter coat gone. He even slept under the covers last night! They are so friendly and nice and have great prices too. He definitely has his new doggy salon! Thanks guys!

Ashley M.

We have been bringing our pup, Jack, for a year and a half. Initially, he was shy and needed more socialization. We couldn't be happier with how he has blossomed! The facilities are well maintained, the staff is caring and attentive (they once called to let us know about a minor health problem they observed which we greatly appreciated) and we feel very comfortable leaving him at Animal Friends for daycare as well as extended overnight stays. He is always excited to see his pup pals! Additionally, when we pick him up, the staff is kind enough to provide updates on his day and the pup friends he plays with. We also appreciate the social media updates and photos they routinely send via text as well as the opportunity to observe him on their live video feed. Heartfelt thanks to Chase, Savannah, Melonie and the entire Animal Friends team! You are first rate!

Sarah T.

I had a very pleasant experience. Chase was very kind, compassionate, made me feel welcomed and calm. I was alittle nervous but this place gets great reviews by the locals in town and I can see why! Everyone I spoke with was very understanding and patient. They have their customers and animals best interest at heart. I will definitely be coming back! My dog came back perfect! Couldn't have asked for a better cut !
Thank you everyone at Animal Friends Pet Care Grooming!

Hailey C.

Amazing staff ! I am over the moon with the results of our cats grooming. He was the worst patient of the day, and did not give them an easy time at all. My cat was still groomed amazingly due to the circumstances and treated with love and care. We will be back and come regularly to get our cat used to the environment and grooming. Highly recommended!!!

Cassie C.

Love the vibes here and the workers are super nice and respectful Savannah has been super amazing with helping me with my baby and helping me make sure my dog is well groomed and smelling good and looking sassy I would definitely recommend this place for all grooming care

April S.

If your pet needs to be groomed or you need to board your fur baby I 100% recommend going to Animal friends. Their work is phenomenal and I am never disappointed.

Tyler H.

I highly recommend this place for haircuts for dogs. They always make my stella look so amazing and smell so good. 5 star!!!!

Amelia A.

Took my Pit Bull and Sheltie, fantastic service, friendly and prices were great! We'll definitely be back.

Christine B.

They did an amazing job!! We showed them a picture of how we wanted the cut to be and they did exactly that and then some. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who needs grooming services.

Bridgett S.

Great place!!! I have been using Animal Friends grooming for my 2 Pomeranians years now. They always look and smell great when I pick them up.

Brittany D.

Love the staff & their boarding services are excellent. 10/10 would take my babies back!! They had a good time & were well taken care of. They sent pictures and updates and my pups came home smelling fresh and clean with their nails clipped :)

Melanie J.

Chase at Animal Friends in Panama City always does an incredible job in styling our standard poodle. The time Charley spends in the grooming area is kept to a minimum. Charley loves Chase.

Carolyne F.

Great place, my dog loves going and they do a great job.

Minnie M.

Daisy Mae , our toy poodle, is well taken care at Animal Friends. Chase, groomer, was very professional.

Shay C.

There isn't a thing I dont love about them!!! Definitely not going to anyone else for my fur babies needs, they are 5 stars for sure!!!

Sabrina D.

The staff here are all professional and they go out of thier way to make sure your furbaby is well taking care of and treated like a part of the family. Thank you all for what you do. It is truly appreciated.

Ron M.

Pilot loves coming here. They treat their customers and their pets better than any other place I've ever been

Luke M.

My dog loves it at this place. Animal friends has the best grooming and boarding service in Panama City hands down!

Chris E.

This place is fantastic. My dogs name is Cuppy and he's the love of my life. He is a two year old puggle with pretty bad separation anxiety. This place has been a great alternative to him being in his crate for hours. Anytime I need to be away from home for more then a couple hours I bring him here. He has been for daycare several times and spend three nights when I took a trip he couldn't join me on. I was so nervous about leaving him. The staff were all very reassuring and kind to both of us. I call to check on him throughout the day or send a quick email and they were more then happy to give me updates. They are great about special diet restrictions and medications also. Would recommend them to anyone. Oh and Cuppy loves it by the way. Has lots of new friends to play with and get lots of loven and a treat every now and then from the staff. Food is the way to a Puggles heart!! And the cost was more then reasonable. Way less then I expected!

Amanda S.

My dog has boarded with Animal friends 2 weeks and the staff treats my dog amazing. Animal friends will always have me as a customer!
