“Walking your best friend is an honor!”

Growing up with 4 family dogs and having to take care of them, I can assure you that I will provide quality service for you and your dog. I'm responsible, friendly and organized and always make an effort to make sure both the owner and dog are happy and satisfied at the end of every walk.

My name is Tony I have a blue nose pit bull that’s 4 years old. I’ve had a few dogs growing up some where my moms some where my grandmas but I’ve been around dogs since I was a baby. I know all the things you need to know about what dogs can and can’t eat and signs that dogs give to express how they are feeling and what calms them when they are scared or have anxiety. So I have a strong care for dogs and like being around them.

Dog Boarding in Santa Monica

Santa Monica, California, is home to some great animal shelters that work hard to find homes for the stray pets in the area. Two of these dedicated shelters are L.A. Love and Leashes and Much Love Animal Rescue.

L.A. Love and Leashes is an animal shelter located inside Healthy Spot in Santa Monica, California. The facility takes in only animals from Los Angeles’ six city animal shelters to help them find new homes. With the large number of dogs and cats in L.A. city shelters, it can be hard for any of them to be seen by potential new owners, so L.A. Love and Leashes promotes them and tries to get more people to see them. Funded only by donations, L.A. Love and Leashes gives all adoption fees back to the city shelters. Adoption fees are the same as they are at the official shelters.

Much Love Animal Rescue is a non-profit rescue that rehomes abused, neglected, and homeless pets from the streets. Since opening in 1999, the shelter has found homes for more than 3,500 animals. These animals are given a second chance because of the rescue’s dedication to saving animals that are about to be euthanized at other animal shelters. The shelter takes in old and hard-to-adopt animals and works on rehabilitating and finding homes for animals of all ages and circumstances. The shelter also educates the public on responsible pet ownership and the importance of spaying and neutering pets.

If you are looking for a new pet, stop by one of these great shelters today!
