Meet the Pack Leader

Preston Cottrell

Dog Enthusiast, Owner/Operator


Preston has had dogs his entire life. After volunteering over 200 hours of time at the Richmond SPCA and being a long-term foster for Henrico Humane Society, he decided to make a career for himself in the pet industry. Preston wanted to open a boarding and daycare facility in Richmond, that offered all of the amenities and care that he couldn’t find at other local facilities. That's exactly what he has done with Happy Camper Pet Lodge. Preston and his wife Jami love taking their three dogs, Guinness, Greta and Littlefoot swimming and hiking in the mountains.
