The Crate Escape was founded by Tammy Schey in Richmond, Vermont, in July of 1995. After 28 years of dedication and passion, she decided to move on from the business, with current owners Ned Robinson and Shannon Mead purchasing The Crate Escape in the Spring of 2023.
Ned is a French-trained chef and restaurant manager who spent 22 years in kitchens and dining rooms. You may recognize him from his time at Stone’s Throw Pizza in Richmond, where he was a part of the opening team. Shannon works for the Center for Health Care Strategies and has a Master’s Degree in Health Care Administration from Colorado State University. Together with their three dogs, Pork Chop, Mickey, and Biscuit, Ned and Shannon live in Westford.
Ned and Shannon are excited to continue providing the highest quality of care for your pets, but we can’t do it without the hard work and dedication of The Crate Escape team. Staff members undergo rigorous training to handle dogs gently with positive techniques while teaching good behavior. Not only do dogs get exercise and socialization, they also receive individual attention and care. Our facilities are cleaned daily to ensure the healthiest environment for your furry friends.
Thanks for being a part of The Crate Escape family, and for letting us be a part of yours.
