“Let’s go for a walk!”

My name is Julie and I recently moved to LA from NYC! I have a lifetime of experience caring for dogs. When I first came to CA, I dog sat my way through the state which was a wonderful way to learn different areas and get to meet some great furry friends in the process! Now that I’m settled in LA, I would love to continue taking care of pups. I was a volunteer and foster mom for It’s Ruff Without a Roof, and cared for many rescues in my home. I love to explore, hike, travel, and teach yoga.

I’m a devoted dog person. I love the bond between people and dogs; it’s an amazing gift. I have volunteered with a local rescue and learned humane, positive and loving techniques to socialize pups so they can find their forever homes. I have adopted three rescues, each with behavioral problems. If your dog is reactive, I have techniques to manage her walk and keep her safe, calm and secure. I’ll give your best friend the best attention!

Dog Boarding in Carmel-By-The-Sea

The Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) of Monterey County was established in 1905 to help and protect the stray animals of Monterey County while striving for a more humane community. From day one, their doors have been open with compassionate care to any and all animals in need, from dogs and cats to chickens and rats. 

Today, the SPCA of Monterey County offers a plethora of services and programs to enrich the lives of the community's pets and people. Homeless animals are accommodated with care and shelter, pet adoptions, lost and found animal reporting, and a foster program. Every dog in the care of the SPCA receives a health and behavior evaluation, vaccinations, a microchip, deworming, flea and tick prevention, and is spayed/neutered. 

Through such thorough care, the shelter strives to enhance the adoptability of each animal and give them the best possible chance at a happy, healthy life in a permanent home! The organization is also dedicated to strengthening the local community and ensuring that pets already in loving homes remain there. The services available to pet owners include animal licensing, a pet food bank, PetMeals program, humane euthanasia and cremation, the Guardian Angel Future Care program, and low-cost spay/neuter, microchipping, and vaccination services. Through their compassionate efforts and commitment to the community, the SPCA is the heart of animal rescue in Monterey County.

Animal Friends Rescue Project (AFRP) is another incredible and compassionate organization serving the animals and people of Carmel-by-the-Sea. This nonprofit is located in the neighboring city of Pacific Grove and is dedicated to finding responsible forever homes for the area's stray, abandoned, and abused companion animals. Additionally, AFRP strives to end the pet overpopulation crisis using focused spay/neuter programs. Originally founded in 1998, the animal rescue organization helps more than 1,200 dogs and 1,000 cats each year. 

They have partnered with other local shelters to rescue animals that don't stand a chance in the shelter system and provide them with the specialized care they need for their eventual placement into loving homes. AFRP provides animal adoption services, shelter animal medical care, responsible pet ownership education, behavioral guidance/resources, a spay/neuter voucher program, and community outreach. It is with the help of approximately 400 active volunteers that they are able to continuously provide this compassionate care, sheltering and fostering animals in need until they are adopted into permanent, loving homes.
