Our staff-to-dog ratio is the highest of all North Shore daycares. Our caring team is well organized, extensively educated, and highly dedicated.  All are certified in Animal CPR and First Aid. Dog play and socialization are important; however, basic manners and activities produce a calm friendly environment where dogs don't just come to play — they come to learn.

Kathy Lichtenstein – Owner

Rex’s Place started in 2010 from a personal need. The recession had taken over and I needed a job. I decided to do what I had done in my career and start something. I found there was a need for another daycare in the area and the rest is history. We opened on March 1, 2010.

It is an honor to care for so many dogs and provide dog owners a place to call home.   Our staff is exceptional and each of them is committed to our business because of their love of dogs. Everything we do puts the welfare of the dog first. We treat each and every dog as if they were our own. As a small business, our profits are invested back into the facility and employees continually improve and grow to enhance their working experience.

Rodolfo Serno

Rodolfo manages the day care together with Chloe. He loves helping the dogs become more secure and feel part of the pack, continuing to make Rex’s Place a safe and happy alternative to staying home. He’s working on his Pet First Aid certificate and would like to go back to school to become a veterinary assistant or obtain a degree in ethology (the study of animal behavior). Rodolfo plays the guitar, writes songs, and is trying to become vegan.
Chloe Fonte

Chloe manages the day care together with Rodolfo. If you follow Rex's Place on social media, you have seen Chloe's gift for photography; she takes all the photos in the day care and manages the social media feeds. She is also in charge of staff training. Last but not least, Chloe is also one of the people who helps to keep our technology running as it should.
