“I can’t wait to meet your dog!”

Hi, I'm Nicole! I grew up in a household with at least one dog, and at times, up to five. My dad likes to joke that I was 'raised by dogs.' I miss having my own, and I always jump at the opportunity to walk or dog sit for my friends and family. I like to lead an active lifestyle and meeting new dogs is one of my favorite activities. I look forward to meeting yours!

I grew up with labrador retrievers, and now have my very own yellow lab named Lily! Dogs bring me a lot of joy and happiness and I get so much joy from caring for dogs. I am always attentive to their needs, and I always keep a watchful eye to make sure they're safe and having a great time. I have years of experience walking and dog-sitting - small dogs, big dogs, medium dogs, cuddly dogs...I absolutely love them all. I have a very flexible work schedule. I'll treat your dog like he or she is my own. I guarantee it.

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.

“Animal lover extraordinaire!”

Hi! I'm Tracy. I've been around animals all my life. I was blessed with 2 awesome dogs as best friends from age 6. When we moved to Alaska, my father became interested in dog sledding and we had 40 dogs! It was a lot of work, but well worth it. I enjoyed spending time with and learning to care for and train the dogs. I love all animals and I'm a dedicated supporter of wildlife preservation, animal rescue and ending animal homelessness and cruelty. I look forward to meeting your furbaby(ies)!

Dog Boarding in Sonoma

While Sonoma, California, is a small city in comparison to many other cities in the state, it still struggles with some of the same issues that larger cities face. One of these problems is homeless animals. In an effort to provide better care for stray pets, there are two great shelters in the area: The Sonoma Humane Society and the Sonoma County Animal Shelter.

The Sonoma Humane Society opened in 1931. Since its opening, it has help find homes for thousands of animals in the Sonoma area. Staff at the shelter provide the animals at the facility with food, water, medical care, and love. The shelter also provides training services, which often helps the pets find new homes. As a no-kill shelter, no healthy animals are ever euthanized at the Sonoma Humane Society. There are two locations in Sonoma County.

The Sonoma County Animal Shelter works with Animal Control to keep homeless pets off the streets and in a facility that provides them with basic care. As part of the government, the shelter helps investigate and prosecute cases of animal abuse, neglect, and cruelty. The shelter also spays and neuters all of the pets that come into their care to prevent more unwanted animals turning up at the door. As a limited admission shelter, the facility doesn’t take in more animals than it can care for to prevent euthanizations.

If you live in Sonoma or the surrounding area and you are looking for a furry friend to bring into your home, consider visiting one of these animal shelters.
