Hi there! My name is Riley Fisbeck. I am a graduate student at the University of Alabama. I love all kinds of furry friends! I have had many beloved animals growing up, including a total of 7 cats, 2 dogs, and a handful of fish. I now have 2 cats back at home, Neeko who is a Maine Coon and Tito who is an orange Tabby. I love dog sitting for my friends and family when they ask, and I frequently visit my local shelter to help out! I look forward to meeting you and your pet family!

“I would love to get to meet your fur family!”

Hi, my name’s Taylor Dobeck and I recently graduated from the University of Alabama. I’ve always been a major dog person and have a strong passion for animals. I grew up with at least one dog from the time I was born and started dog sitting around age 12, and even dog watched for a family with 12 dogs. Needless to say, that gave me a lot of experience with dogs of all different personalities. Being a dog walker means getting to meet some awesome dogs.

Dog Boarding in Tuscaloosa

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.
