Your Pet Is Our Passion

Meet Shane and Tracy Tiderman

In 2002, friends and family of Kris Price thought she had lost her mind when she sold her house and retired from a successful 23-year career with Nike, Inc to launch her own business. She had a vision to create a place that had animal daycare, boarding, grooming, and dog wash stations all under one roof (something that didn’t really exist at the time). 

That vision led to another successful 20 year career leading Noah’s Arf, a place where people could feel great about leaving their pets in caring hands. When Kris was finally ready to retire (again), she faced a dilemma – how to continue the care and passion she had built…

She turned to long-time friends Tracy and Shane Tiderman who, like Kris, were ready to leave their busy careers and take on a project that the entire family could embrace and work together…

We worked weekends and holidays training with Kris and the staff as getting to know the dogs and cats of Noah’s while working our full-time careers. We extensively studied Animal Behavior, Care, First-Aid, and some training to add to our lived experience as pet owners of dogs, cats, guinea pigs and fish. When we felt we were ready, and Kris felt we were ready, we took over the reins of Noah’s Arf. 

Today, you will find us here all the time, enjoying every moment of caring for your pets as a family. Come by anytime to meet us, we love to talk about what and why we do what we do…

Our Mission

We built this business from our love of animals and desire to provide a higher level of care for our furry companions. We are passionate about what we do and have made it our mission to make sure your dog or cat has the very best time during their stays with us. 





“Wonderful caring staff. Finally found an awesome place for our dog.”
