  • I'm in Doggy Heaven Opens

    James Castonguay’s job has literally gone to the dogs. He owns and operates I’m in Doggy Heaven Daycare and Spa, a full service grooming facility.

    Open for just over two years in Locust, I’m in Doggy Heaven began as a mobile grooming service in September 2013. When an area groomer decided to close, Castonguay purchased the business in January 2014.

    The owner and his wife, Lorrie, had a vision.

    “We were inspired to get into the grooming business when we took our lab in for a bath and the groomer charged us what we thought was an outrageous amount,” Castonguay said. “We decided then that we were going to have a grooming business and we were going to do our best to make it affordable.”

    Originally from Newport News, Castonguay worked for 10 years at a shipyard before relocating to work for Philip Morris.

    “I worked there as a maintenance mechanic for 7.5 years before they closed,” he said. “I went back to school when I got laid off and got an associates degree in electronic engineering technology (at Stanly Community College).”.............
