About Us

Tan-Zar Kennels and Cattery is a full-service dog and cat boarding and grooming facility located in Wexford, a scenic suburban community north of Pittsburgh. It is the oldest, continuously operating commercial pet-care facility of its kind in the tri-state area and comes highly recommended by several veterinarian practices in the greater Pittsburgh area.

Established in 1955 by the Catanzarite family, the facility has maintained a long-standing tradition of providing quality pet care in a clean, comfortable, safe and caring environment. Bob & Kyle Catanzarite sold the business in 2017.

We offer competitive boarding and grooming rates for small and large breed dogs and all breeds of cats. Payment for boarding and grooming is required when your pet leaves the kennel and cattery and is accepted in cash or by check only.
