best quality care possible when they are with us,
we can not only better their lives, but also

of all animals.
Frolic Inn™ was founded in the early 1970's by Helen
John Madlinger, Sr., who opened it as Vinroc
When they first looked at the land in
(where the kennel resides now), Helen worried out loud whether it would be a good spot to start their business. It was in the middle of nowhere, and rocks and vines covered the area (hence the name Vinroc). When Vinroc opened, the kennel offered just two services: boarding and grooming. In February 2007, the business was passed to John, Jr. and his wife, Kristen. Since then, not only has Vinroc changed its name to Frolic Inn™, but also John and Kristen have updated the pet quarters, added day care services, built trails through the surrounding 40 acres for walking the dogs, created a dog park for play time, and designed a garden where dogs can relax and bask in the warmth of the sun.
