Vixen Hall Kennels is located in Southern Chester County on the rolling hills of the Merrill Farm. On 26 acres, these country kennels are set away from busy roads and industry; just a short ride to the country is time well spent for the safety and enjoyment of your pet.

Owner, Rhonda Merrill, lives on premises and believes that the safety and comfort of your pet is first priority. Our shared philosophy is to treat every pet as if they were our own. We pride ourselves on providing quality care in a loving environment for all who stay with us. Staffed by caring pet professionals,  Vixen Hall employees are passionate about animals and share in our pet philosophies.

Please take a look around our website and see all the services that we can offer you and your four legged family member.

Our well trained staff is full of animal loves that take pride in their work. Our goal is to treat every pet in our facility as if it were one of our own.


What sets Vixen Hall Kennels apart from the rest is our commitment to making sure each dog has a fun and relaxing stay filled with lots of love and play time without tons of fees added to your bill!

Our Property

Our farm consists of large, open fields perfect for dogs who love to run. Two fenced play yards are great for a game of fetch or group play sessions. Our natural pond is the ultimate swimming destination for any water loving pup. The nature trails that run throughout the property are perfect for a summer’s day hike. By tailoring our services to fit your pet’s needs, we ensure that every guest, from the energetic and youthful to the slower moving senior, gets the kind of attention he/she needs to have a wonderful vacation with us.

We are happy to announce that the Speaking Dog Training Co. (SDTC) has made Vixen Hall Kennels its home base for all of their training programs.

Our kitty corner is a quiet room with a climbing tree and plenty of places to take long cat naps. This communal room is a large area where cats can play and nap together.


Our trained staff of groomers specialize in a variety of breed specific cuts as well as creating adorable “mutt cuts” for mixed breeds ensuring that we can provide our clients with all of their grooming needs.
