We are Marie and Mia Latimer- the mother-daughter duo behind Wee Little Paws Inn.

Marie built Wee Little Paws Inn- Deer Park in 2010 after realizing there were no boarding facilities that focused on smaller dogs and their needs.

Mia, after getting her industrial engineering degree at Iowa State, felt unfulfilled working for a huge corporation.

Inspired by her mom, she knew she could combine her degree and passions into creating a colorful, well-run, animal oasis.

Together they opened their second location, October 2022, in Crystal Lake, IL.

Our mission

Our main priority is the comfort and safety of our clients when they walk through our doors.

We designed Wee Little Paws to feel like a home, not a dog kennel. Our goal is for our building to be a home away from home for our furry clients.

Our staff is committed to providing the cleanest, coziest, and fun experience for your pup when they stay with us.

We encourage every guest to take a tour to see how different we really are. Everything is on full display and nothing is hidden from our guests. We pride ourselves on being fully transparent. 

We look forward to spending time with and taking care of your loved ones!

Marie & Mia
