“Let me love your dog like my own :)”
Hello! My name is Sarah and I am a college student in Daytona Beach. I love having a flexible job that allows me to do something I love during my free time! I am a huge animal lover and have a dog of my own here in Daytona. I love to help out other pet parents that are unable to walk their own dogs themselves and I am happy to walk any and every type of dog! I love meeting all the different dogs in the area :)

The Halifax Humane Society annually provides services to over 25,000 animals in the Greater Daytona Beach area of Volusia County! The facility has the capacity to kennel and cage 350 animals a day and is usually full. This nonprofit organization was founded in 1937. They offer over 35 programs that range from animal sheltering and adoption, to various training/education programs, to legislative action, to health care.
Their programs are really exceptional, including all of the different members of the community. Beach Buddies is a program in which a citizen may take a dog on a three-day pass to get acquainted as a future furry friend or just as a chance for some pawsome dog fun in the sun. A point of pride is the Prison N Pups program in which the organization works with the Tomoka Correctional Facility. The program provides hope to both man and man's best friend as the animals are socialized to become adoptable and the inmates receive training that may lead to future employment in animal services.
With a heart for the disabled, the facilities are availed to My Angel with Paws to support therapy and service animals about three times a year. For animals with special behavioral and medical needs, they offer a Foster Care Program in which you may choose to care for an orphaned, young pet, provide TLC to an unsocialized animal, or support rehabilitation. Lost pet? The organization will help!
As a non-profit, funds are raised by donors, through partnerships and with charities and fund-raising events, such as "Yappy Hours" and "Fur Balls".
Voted the #1 thing to do in the area, take an adventure tour down the Halifax River through the Daytona Beach area on dog-friendly, stand-up paddleboards! This dolphin and manatee SUP adventure tour will charge admission for the human, but the sea-sporting pooches paddleboard for free! The guided tour at Three Brothers Boards will provide training and practice, then take you out for an adventure. Before you go, you will need to ensure a pawsitive paddleboard experience by checking your pet's readiness: Does your dog like water? Is your pet social? Do you have a Pet-Flotation Device? Did you take practice runs with little paddle outings first? With a bit planning, you can SUP with your PUP!
Daytona Beach is the third city in Florida to hold a Dog Film Festival. The event is sponsored by Cinematique and Brownie's Dog Boutique. Participants can watch short dog movies - but only with service and companion dogs. The proceeds go to Sophie's Choice Animal Rescue and a memorial for Daytona's Town Dog, Brownie. For 14 years, from 1940 - 1954 a little stray dog, named Brownie, was adopted by the taxi company. Daily, Brownie visited the stores on Beach Street with a can on his collar for donations to pay for his care. He was so beloved that 75 mourners attended his funeral. His memorial is located in Riverside Park, by Beach Street.
Have a dog-gone good time socializing with your pooch and other pet owners at this regularly scheduled Yappy Hour. The Stonewoods Grill & Tavern in Daytona Beach generously donates the beverages and food sold during this event to raise funds for the Halifax Humane Society. If it's brew you prefer, there is plenty of human and hound companionship to be found at the Lagerhead's Bar & Grill just up the road in Ormond Beach. Just make sure to register online with the Halifax Humane Society. How fun to hang out with your dog and fur-loving friends for "yappy" times!
Love wagging tails and slobbery kisses? The Rescue Pet Dog Show is not for the pampered pooch but for rescued dogs and their owners to strut, play games, and win prizes! The proceeds of the day go to Sophie's Circle Dog Rescue and the event is hosted at Kalin Home Furnishings. Anyone with a rescue dog or dogs is welcome to come and participate. There is a chance to win a ribbon in up to 13 categories that include: Best Biscuit Catcher, Best Costume, Best Trick, Best Tail, Best Ears, Best Rescue, Most Like the Owner, Best Child-Handler, and more. With food trucks, pet vendors, pet experts, silent auctions, and prizes, it's sure to be a pup-tastic day!
Play days with your dog are the most fun when the environment is made for them! The Halifax Humane Society Dog Park is located off of I-95 and is the perfect playground for pets and their partners. The park features large dog, small dog on and off-leash play areas. There are agility courses, shaded and unshaded play areas, walking trails, and water stations for both humans and pets. The Halifax Humane Society plans events including agility training at this park, so check their calendar for programs that will build your bond with your beloved fur-ever friend. Shout-out to Coleman Goodemote Construction for building such beautiful structures for the park!
