I love meeting new dogs and would love to get to know your four legged friend. I rescued my dog from the shelter 8 years ago and he is my best friend. I also just got a husky pup who is definitely keeping me on my toes. He is 3 months old and full of energy. I look forward to the new friends I can make through walking your dog.

“Happiness is a warm puppy!”
Hey there, I’m Alfredo. I’ve taken care of a wide variety of pets-all with unique personalities, for friends of the family as well as the latter...it helps owning a few as well. Just around nine years after rescuing our cherished family member, and not a day passes where she’ll always be seen as the pup with spunk, as I’m sure you can relate. I guarantee your loyal hound will receive just as much love each time we head out for a walk. Looking forward to meeting you and your best friend!

I have many years of experience in caring for pets of all kinds. From dogs and cats to fish, and currently a rabbit! I’m very excited to be able to assist our clients as well as spend time with their fur babies! I currently work from home, with a flexible schedule. If you're looking to let your baby out for a short walk, or a short while at the park, I'd love to take them.
When dogs in the Californian city of Modesto suffer abuse, neglect, or abandonment, there’s no shortage of dog lovers and animal welfare groups willing to help. Modesto’s pooches can rely on a helping paw from several grrr-eat rescue groups and animal advocates that operate in the local area, such as the Humane Society of Stanislaus County.
This non-profit animal rescue, welfare, and education organization helps at-risk companion animals throughout Stanislaus County. The group is run completely by volunteers and does not have a shelter to house the animals it rescues, relying instead on a dedicated network of foster carers to provide the care these at-risk pets need. As the Humane Society of Stanislaus County is not associated with any national organizations or government associations, it is always on the lookout for volunteers and much-need donations.
The SPCA of Stanislaus is another local non-profit with animals at the forefront of everything it does. Founded to protect animals from cruelty and to promote their well-being and humane treatment, the SPCA is a no-kill shelter staffed solely by volunteers. It relies on donations to continue helping animals in need and does everything from promoting the passage of humane legislation to finding homes for unwanted pets and supporting spay and neuter services.
Finally, Pupz N Palz Rescue is a small canine rescue group based in Modesto. Operating on a no-kill philosophy, the group rescues dogs from high-kill shelters, accepts owner surrenders, and sometimes takes in lost and abandoned animals. All rescued dogs are vaccinated, given the medical care they need and then given a second chance at life in a loving forever home.
Looking for a spook-tacularly good time with your pooch and the whole family? The annual Halloween Party & Pet Parade, hosted by Westurf Nursery and the Humane Society of Stanislaus County, could be just what you need. Kids and fur-kids are encouraged to dress up and embrace the Halloween spirit, and there’s a paw-somely cute pet and costume parade through the nursery. There’s plenty more to enjoy during the party including cookie decorating, face painting, DIY seed bombs, and photo ops. All activities throughout the day are compliments of Westurf Nursery, but donations of cat and dog food for the Humane Society of Stanislaus County are appreciated.
A woof-tastic celebration of dogs and all the wonderful things about them — that’s what you can expect at Modesto’s annual Puptoberfest. Held at the local Petco and hosted by Pupz N Palz Rescue, this paw-some day out provides six hours of pet-friendly fun for dog lovers and their doggos. You can enter your pooch in the entertaining pet costume contest, stuff your face in a pie-eating contest, and shop for products from a variety of vendors. There’s also face painting, a bake sale, doggy games, and plenty of adoptable pets for anyone searching for a new furry friend. There’s so much to see and do, you might even need to stay all day long!
Love Easter? Let your dog join in the fun at the annual Easter Eggstravaganza, hosted by Pupz N Palz Rescue at the Modesto Petco! This is a free furry event that provides fun and games for the whole family, with six hours of games and activities to enjoy. Some of the main highlights include vendors, delicious food, live music, face painting, a bake sale, and a paw-some opportunity to get some pics with the Easter Bunny. Speaking of which, the Easter Bunny will most certainly be popping in for a visit, while there’ll also be an exciting egg hunt for young kids to enjoy. Just remember that you’re the only one allowed to indulge in some tasty chocolate treats — not your dog!
An entire weekend festival celebrating chocolate — what could possibly be better than that? Taking in all the festival fun with your dog by your side, of course! Held in May, the Iakdale Chocolate Festival is heaven on Earth for any chocaholic. It features more than 200 vendors selling unique arts and crafts, food for every palate and, best of all, lots and lots of chocolate! Fudges, truffles, ice creams, cheesecakes — you’ll find it all here, and pooches on a leash are always welcome at this dog-friendly event. Once again, just remember that chocolate is extremely toxic to dogs and should never be given to your furry friend.
A free, family-friendly and dog-friendly event to support a local animal rescue group — sounds pretty paw-some, huh? That’s exactly what you can expect at Barktoberfest, the annual fair and expo held to benefit Animal Rescue of Tracy. If you’re looking for a fun day out with your pooch, you’ll find it here as the two of you can shop for products from local vendors, enjoy interactive doggy activities, listen to live music, and learn from canine demonstrations! There’s even a well-attended doggy costume contest to enter or you can just sit back and watch, plus there are raffles to help with fundraising efforts. Event proceeds fund the care of rescued dogs, so there’s no excuse not to check out this grrr-eat event!
