Hello! I am Yvonne. When I am not walking dogs, I am an operational meteorologist for the U.S. Air Force. I moved back home to the Wilmington, DE area about 5 years ago after serving in San Diego, Boise, and the Seattle area. I love all animals. While I do admit that cats were my first love, it was not until 2004 when I got my first dog, a pug named Monster, and I became a dog person. After Monster, I rescued another pug from a shelter. His name was Budda. They have since passed. Currently I own a Bedlington Terrier named Payton. I have no children, so she is my "baby" and love of my life. Aside from owning dogs, I have had various roommates that owned dogs, Labs and Corgis. I have volunteered with shelters and pug rescues across the country. I worked part time at Fetch as a dog walker/pet sitter in Boise, ID. I love to run and be outdoors so dog walking is perfect for me. I am very excited to meet you and your wonderful pets!

Dog enthusiast and lover. I grew up with two Golden Retrievers and my family now has a Spanish Water Dog! I love to walk our dog (Taffy) around the neighborhood or take her to the park every now and then. Great with animals and people. I'm a university student trying to make a little extra money to put into my savings for loan repayment and what better way than to meet and walk some furry friends?! I've worked with dogs of all sizes, so all are welcome (and encouraged).

Dog Boarding in Newark

In the quaint city of Newark, Delaware, it isn't hard to see what this place has to offer you and your fur family. Between festivals and costume contests, there is no shortage of activities for you to indulge in. Before we get into the activities this great city has to offer, let us take a quick look at the fur-tastic shelter this city provides.  

The Delaware SPCA was originally created in the year 1873 as a way to stand up against the terrible way livestock was being treated in the area. From there, it has been built into a facility that takes great pride in taking care of each animal that comes through its doors. The SPCA has gone through numerous changes over the years, including opening new facilities and creating spay/neuter clinics. In 2016, the shelter was surprisingly shut down when the board looked into selling the land. Luckily, the shelter was able to reopen early 2017, due to the overwhelming support and demand of the local community to bring it back. 

This shelter is a non-profit organization that is kept open by the generous donations of citizens and local businesses. They have plenty of people that help them stay open and because of this, they are able to provide the best care possible for numerous animals each year at the lowest costs. This shelter is located at 455 Stanton Christiana Road. If you are interested in fetching more information on this wonderful shelter, be sure to check out their website.
