Best In Show's History

The Best In Show Pet Resort was founded in 2008 by Dr. Raymond Polley, DMV. Dr. Polley launched Best In Show Pet Resort to bring outstanding pet care to Long Island. His goal was to take pet care to a higher standard for people on Long Island. He traveled across the country and visited all the premier resorts in America to determine how to provide the best possible pet care to Long Island. What he came back with was the basis for the design of the first all suite, state of the art, luxury pet care facility in Mineola, NY.

Dr. Polley is a lifelong animal lover. He founded Garden City Veterinary Care. In 2008, he relocated Garden City Veterinary Care to our convenient building in the heart of Nassau county.  Dr. Polley received a doctorate in veterinary medicine from Ross University in 1994. He is a member of AVMA, NYSVMS, and LIVMA.
