“The best dog walker in town!”

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 San Mateo

Whether you love big dogs, small dogs, or dogs of all shapes and sizes, San Mateo is one part of America where you’re sure to feel right at home! Like so many other cities in the San Francisco Bay Area, San Mateo is known for its dog-friendly attractions and for the dedicated animal lovers that are always at the ready to help animals in need.

Peninsula Humane Society & SPCA is the perfect example of this. An independent, non-profit shelter, Peninsula Humane Society & SPCA accepts all animals regardless of their age, breed or size. Best of all, it has rehomed 100 percent of the healthy dogs and cats in its care since 2003!

This open-door shelter takes in sick, injured, abused, unwanted, stray, neglected, and older pets all year long. These animals receive the veterinary care and rehabilitation they need, with approximately 200 animals rehomed each and every month.

Family Dog Rescue also sinks its teeth into rescuing animals in the San Mateo area. Founded in 2010, this grassroots non-profit saves more than 800 dogs a year from certain euthanasia, helping them find permanent homes. Since 2010, the group has rescued more than 3,000 dogs and paired them with loving, responsible owners.

Family Dog Rescue operates on the belief that dog + human = family and that a dog truly makes a house a home. Its shelter is open seven days a week by appointment only, so get in touch if you’re looking to give a beautiful dog a second chance at life.
