Little Critters Bed & Biscuit in Grande Cache is owned and operated by Donna Criss.  Originally, Donna’s idea was to start a four-kennel business out of her home.  After some encouragement from her husband and friends her idea grew to opening a larger facility.

Putting together a start up plan and working with Community Futures West Yellowhead, she opened her business in May 2014.  She hasn’t looked back since.
