I have pet sit for several labs and retrievers and beagles but love ALL kinds of doggos and puppers! I love the adventure of a good walk but I always put the dogs first, making sure to accommodate when they are tired, thirsty and of course, when they need to smell EVERYTHING! I can't wait to play with the cutest new friends!

Hello! My name is Andrea and I am a HUGE dog lover! I had a Lhasa Apso for 15 years and have had a lot of experience caring for other breeds- both big and small. My dog was particularly anxious late in life, so I have had a lot of practice in interacting with dogs that have anxiety. On the flip slide, I have also had extensive experience dogsitting for dogs with boundless playful energy. I feel comfortable with all breeds and am excited meet your best friend!
I am a 28-year-old Ph.D. student. Dog walking and dog sitting is my FAVORITE way to put the books away! I have a lovable, goofy 80-pound rescue dog named Doug. When not taking care of other people's dogs, I'm often taking him for long walks or cuddling him on the couch!
The Tuscaloosa Metropolitan Animal Shelter (or TMAS for short) is a non-profit organization that is funded by the city. They do their best to get animals into loving homes, working with local rescues to limit the amount of euthanized creatures. Thankfully, the shelter has lowered its kill rates by over 30% in the last few years, with goals to continue decreasing those numbers. They also act as the city's animal control, being responsible for all rescued strays in the area.
TMAS runs numerous programs, including spaying/neutering, education for the community, happy hour fundraisers and volunteering opportunities. They also strive to reunite lost dogs with their owners.
No Greater Lover Animal Rescue, another organization who focuses on animals, is a small, no-kill shelter that works to get animals from high-kill shelter euthanasia into forever homes. Being that it is one of the smaller shelters in Western Alabama, No Greater Love relies heavily on the tireless work of volunteers and their foster network to help prevent unnecessary death amongst the dog population in shelters there.
