About Us

We’re a collection of pet resort owners and professionals across finance, HR, operations, and pet services that have come together to build something greater than the sum of its parts. For us, pets are family, and we believe they should have top tier service providers working together to ensure the highest quality of care.

Our Story

In 2018, our founders Azhar Quader and Eyal Cohen worked to build a 14 unit veterinary and pet services company across New York City and Denver. Azhar teamed up with the founding veterinarians to build a platform where he raised capital, recruited executives, implemented top tier financial reporting, acquired multiple locations, and built new locations, and raised capital.
Eyal joined Azhar to help launch the pet day care division called “Waggers”. At the outset he was often on the ground scooping poop and caring for animals. In 2021, they sold their business to NVA, the largest owner of veterinary clinics and pet resorts in America. Eyal joined NVA as their Director of Acquisitions in North America, where he supported their growth. He learned both the good and the bad of how a large organization like NVA buys and supports pet resorts.
After several years, they wanted to take those learnings, focus on pet resort businesses and pet services, and do it again. So the gang got back together and Pet Resort Hospitality Group was born.
Azhar and Eyal saw that many of the larger companies acquiring pet resorts were “consolidators”, buying up as many resorts as quickly as possible, and doing little to support their continued growth and operations over the long term. The consolidators are buying resorts for cashflow, growing for the sake of growth, and often leaving managers and employees to fend for themselves post-transaction.
They knew they could build a company of top independent brands with great corporate support, and it could transform the pet care industry. So in 2023, they set out on a mission to partner with 6 leading Pet Resorts across the US and created Pet Resort Hospitality Group.
Today, they’ve partnered with some of the leading pet resorts in America. They’re giving these operators a leg up on the competition through marketing, hiring, HR, finance, and operational support. Above all, they’re caring for thousands of pets every day, improving their lives and the lives of their parents.
