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!

Dog Boarding in Emeryville

Sandwiched in between Berkeley and Oakland, Emeryville has no shortage of dog-friendly attractions and experiences within easy reach. Emeryville’s dogs are also well cared for by a host of animal welfare and rescue groups that operate in the local area, such as Berkeley Humane.

Officially established in 1927, Berkeley Humane has a long history of protecting the rights of animals in and around Berkeley and the wider Bay Area. With a mission to provide life-saving programs for cats and dogs, cultivate compassion, and strengthen the human-animal bond, this grrr-eat group is committed to caring for homeless dogs and cats throughout the East Bay.

Over the years, Berkeley Humane has helped more than 45,000 pets find loving, forever homes. It also offers dog training, behaviour advice, and spay and neuter services to help reduce pet homelessness, and volunteers, foster carers, and donations are crucial to its ability to continue helping animals in need.

Hopalong & Second Chance Animal Rescue is another paw-some group that’s always ready to lend a helping paw to homeless pets. With a mission to end the euthanasia of dogs and cats through rescue and spay/neuter programs, this non-profit organization saves around 1,000 animals a year. In fact, in the 22 years of its existence, Hopalong & Second Chance Animal Rescue has rescued more than 25,000 animals.

The group pulls animals from high-risk shelters in 11 local counties, giving those pets the treatment and support they need until they can be paired with a loving owner. This 100 percent foster-based rescue is always on the lookout for more foster carers and donations, so keep it in mind if you want to support a hardworking animal rescue group in the Emeryville area.
