“My best friends have 4 paws”

Hi, I'm Lyric. I'm a long-time Bay Area resident, and dog lover. Dogs have always been a part of my life, and I have many years of dog care under my belt, from puppy to senior, including special needs dogs. I have experience with many breeds, and know how to handle high-energy dogs. I love meeting new dogs and getting to know their charming (and often hilarious) personalities. Our dogs aren't pets, they are family, and you can count on me to treat them that way.

“Wag! Certified, large, small I walk them all.”

There is not much better than seeing a happy pup face and a wagging tail. I’m an avid hiker, lover of the outdoors and am athletic to keep up with any pup. I’m also patient and take my time with senior pups and those with special needs. I look forward to meeting your canine companion and the many adventures we will have together. Large, small, I walk them all! Certifications: Pet CPR and Pet First Aid

Dog Boarding in Fruitdale

When dogs in Fruitdale need a helping paw, there’s no shortage of hardworking animal welfare advocates ready to come to the rescue.

Take PAWS 4 SJACS, for example. This complicated-sounding acronym stands for Pet Awareness and Welfare Society for San Jose Animal Care Center, and this paw-some group works closely with the center to help adoptable animals find new homes. Not only does PAWS 4 SJACS run a range of programs to reduce the number of homeless animals that end up in SJACS in the first place, but it also provides enrichment to animals awaiting new homes and encourages local rescue groups to take in animals from the shelter.

PAWS 4 SJACS is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization, and it’s always on the lookout for more volunteers and financial support. Check out its website if you’d like to donate.

Companion Animal Rescue Effort (CARE) is another great rescue group that operates throughout the Bay Area. Founded in 1997, this non-profit animal rescue organization is staffed entirely by volunteers. Its mission is to find good, permanent homes for dogs that were abandoned, relinquished, or never reclaimed, and the pets it rescues are first placed in nurturing foster homes.

There they receive the right nutrition, medical attention, training, and loving attention until they can be placed into carefully chosen homes. Because CARE is a no-kill organization, all animals remain in foster care until they can find their forever home, no matter how long it takes.

If you’d like to help, get in touch with CARE to find out how you can volunteer, donate, or adopt.

Downtown Campbell Spring Wine Walk

A classy, relaxed evening full of fine wines and gourmet food — that’s what you can expect at the Downtown Campbell Spring Wine Walk. Held in April, this wonderful event gives you a chance to sample more than 30 delicious wines from some of Campbell’s best wineries. That’s fantastic news in itself, but the best part is that your dog is welcome to join you on the walk (keeping in mind that dogs may not be allowed into all tasting locations)! This paw-pular event always sells out very quickly, so get your tickets as soon as you can. But don’t worry if you miss out on the spring event, as there’s also a winter wine walk for you to enjoy!
