Hi! My name is Rebecca and I am an animal lover by nature. I grew up surrounded by animals and raised a Border-Collie mix pup to live a long, healthy and happy 16 years! I have walked dogs, house-sat, and cared for all kinds of pets for over 16 years. Obedience classes & agility training courses were part of the growing up process with my own dog, Sara. Mostly we had a fun, goofy time just playing. She went everywhere with me! Since she passed away, I take any chance I can to be around my canine pals. I've always had an affinity for dogs large & small, with boundless energy or a calm disposition. I know how important it is to have your dog(s) well-cared for while you are busy or traveling so I am here to help! I am always up for a leisurely stroll in the neighborhood, brisk walk or challenging hike. Whatever your needs are I can meet them. I feel very fortunate to be able to walk a variety of dogs. It would be my great pleasure to meet your dog and make a new friend!

I became an official dog owner at a young age when I was given a husky for my 13th birthday. Ever since, I have had many experiences caring for all kinds of dogs. The history of breeds I have cared for range from small dogs such as terriers and chihuahuas to large dogs including pit bulls and bulldogs. My volunteer experience includes working at the Linda Blair WorldHeart Foundation (LBWF). During my time at this animal shelter, I cleaned, walked, and fed many dogs who were rescued.

Dog Boarding in Berkeley

The efforts of Berkeley Humane are an incredibly valuable resource to the dogs, cats, and people of the Berkeley and the surrounding East Bay community. They compassionately provide life-saving rescue programs and strengthen the animal-human bond. Originally founded in 1906 as the Berkeley SPCA, the organization's beginning was a community effort to replace the poorly run pound of the area and start a sanctuary for local lost and homeless animals. In 1927, the active and hardworking organization filed papers with state and officially became the Berkeley Humane Society. 

Over time, the shelter has adapted and added services to better fulfill the needs of the community. These include an adoption program, educational opportunities, behavior and training resources, community pet support programs, and even an in-house veterinary hospital. Today, Berkeley Humane operates as a nonprofit dedicated to preventing animal cruelty and providing complete care to animals in need, through rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming.  

The City of Berkeley's Animal Care Services (BACS), a part of the Office of the City Manager, functions as an animal shelter serving the cities of Berkeley and Albany. They provide a wide range of services to the area's animals and pet owners including taking in stray animals, enforcing animal-related ordinances, and investigating animal neglect, cruelty, nuisance, and bite cases. In addition to providing shelter for lost and homeless animals, BACS runs an adoption program, gives advice to the community on animal-related topics, advertises lost and found animals, and supplies free or low-cost spay/neuter vouchers for Berkeley's dogs and cats. The time and devotion of numerous animal-loving volunteers are essential to maintaining BACS and continuing to provide their offered services with care.
