“helping dogs live their best life”

Hi there! My name is Alex and I am a young professional who has been working in the pet industry for the past five years. My love of dogs started when I was seven with my first dog, a yellow lab named Callie. She was my best friend growing up, showed me uncodnitional love and really gave me a strong understanding of what a dog's purpose is in our lives. Today I currently have three dogs, two yellow labs and a German Shepard mix who are my avid hiking and running partners.

I am a responsible, trustworthy person with a wealth of experience with dogs. Along with caring for my own, I've walked, pet sat, boarded and fostered dogs for family members, friends and associates throughout my life. My early experiences working at a pet shop and as a veterinarian's assistant provided a foundation of dog care knowledge that I've continued to build on ever since. After a lengthy career in the Information Technology sector I opted to retire early and pursue rewarding part-time work. As a Fairfield resident for over 20 years, I'm committed to providing local Wag clients with the best dog walking service possible.

“Dog Tested, Owner Approved”

As a child, I was firmly a cat person and thought dogs were terrifying - but then we got one! Marla helped show me that the line between cat and dog lovers is meant to be blurred. While cats are still the only animal I have tattooed on my skin, the handful of dogs I've taken care of will always have a special place in my heart. But don't worry, there's still plenty of room left for your furry buddy too!

Hey there! I'm Cecile. Growing up I watched my older sisters bring home strays and care for them. I learned from them how to tell if a dog is happy, scared, or in pain. I learned how to calm an anxious dog with a soft voice and that dogs that are more vocal, change their posture, or are not so interested in food, may be in pain or sick. I also learned how much fun it is to play with a dog. I am enrolled in the Veterinary Assistant Program at Middlesex Community College to learn more about the animals I love. I will receive my certificate February 14, 2018.

I am a recent UConn graduate and drummer, currently building a portfolio and playing local gigs. I have wanted a dog all my life but have not been able to due to allergies in the family. This gig lets me spend time with dogs while learning about different breeds which will help me decide on what type of dog I would like for myself in the future. I will be excited to meet yours and care for them as if they were my own!

Dog Boarding in Milford

The Animal Welfare Society out of New Milford, Connecticut is on a mission: to save as many unwanted, abandoned, neglected, injured, special needs, aging, "perfect but owner turned in because they don't have time for them" and abused animals in the Connecticut area, give them medical care if needed, lots of love, and a caring foster home with an amazing family.

Many animals that come to be in the care of the Animal Welfare Society have been hurt - if not physically, then emotionally. Being abandoned or neglected by someone is mentally traumatic for them; they simply don't have the capacity to understand it. The staff and volunteers at the Animal Welfare Society pledge to take as much time with each individual pet as is needed to ensure that the pet is calm, feeling secure and trusting of humans again. No healthy pet will ever be euthanized on their watch. 

The Animal Welfare Society is hoping to break the cycle of unnecessary euthanasia by spaying and neutering all incoming pets prior to adoption, educating the public about the importance of spaying and neutering and offering low-cost alternatives to those in need. 

Do you have questions about adopting? Contact the rescue; they are here to help you find the perfect pet for you and your family. The shelter is open Tuesdays from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.; Wednesday through Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and is closed to the public on Sundays and Mondays.

Are you ready to open your heart and home to a loving, forever friend?  Contact the shelter and they will guide you through the process of picking your new best friend.  If you are unable to adopt right now, maybe consider volunteering some time to the AWS. There are so many jobs that need doing and the staff would truly appreciate the extra hand. You can even just come in and volunteer to cuddle an extra timid pup, clean, do some administrative work or walk the dogs. If you are lucky, you may even get an extra-super-duper face-lick and tail-wag combo from their furry, adoptable pets!
