Hi! My name is Lydia and I've lived in the Bay Area my whole life. I've been around dogs since the day I was brought home from the hospital and I love dogs of all shapes and sizes. I started dogsitting in high school and then ended up nannying and babysitting for many families that have dogs in the years that followed. I love spending time outdoors, walking, and hiking. I can't wait to meet your dogs.

I am a retired female in my early 60’s who is a regular daily walker. As a Wag! Walker I have done over 200 dog walks. I am RELIABLE & RESPONSIBLE. Numerous owners have designated me as their preferred walker. I always go the extra mile for the dogs in my care. For example, I ALWAYS make sure each dog has a fresh & full water bowl at the end of our walk. And, if it has been rainy & wet, I wipe the dog’s paws before bringing him/her back into the house. I would love to walk your Pup!

Dog Boarding in Santa Rosa

Santa Rosa, California, is situated near Sonoma, California. With close proximity to other cities and the coast, there are a lot of stray animals in the area that are looking for new homes. Unfortunately, there aren’t many animal shelters in Santa Rosa, but there are shelters close by for those who are looking to adopt!

The Sonoma Humane Society opened in 1931 as a donor-sponsored shelter dedicated to the care and protection of animals in the area. The facility is so dedicated to finding homes for new animals that it provides more than the basic necessities of shelter, food, and medical care to homeless animals. The shelter also provides training services for animals and works hard to find the perfect forever fit for each animal in the facility. This no-kill shelter has two locations in Sonoma County to house animals.

The Sonoma County Animal Shelter is part of the county government. The shelter works closely with the Animal Control Department to get homeless or lost animals off the streets. This shelter not only provides food and safety to animals, but it also investigates and prosecutes cases of animal abuse, cruelty, and neglect. It also offers discounted spays and neuters for members of the community. The shelter operates as a limited admission shelter, which means it only takes it the number of animals that it can hold so it doesn’t have to euthanize healthy animals for space.

If you are interested in a new pet, consider adopting one from the Sonoma County Animal Shelter or the Sonoma Humane Society.

Every Saturday, with the exception of a few holidays, the Central Santa Rosa Library hosts Read to a Dog from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. The program was established to help children learn to read, but children of all ages are encouraged to participate!

Reading to a dog allows children the opportunity to read without worrying about the judgment of a listener. Plus, children are given the opportunity to bond and interact with animals.

Dogs are brought in from the Sonoma Humane Society for the events. All dogs are adoptable.

The events are free.
