I have always loved animals as a child and would often bring stray dogs home and care for them; as I was an outcast kid/teen with little to no friends. Ever since I can remember I have always had some type of animal. From dogs, birds, crawfish, hamsters, rabbits, geico, and a few turtles; even camels. My recent experience with 2 displaced cats (Bob)-Tabby & (Cali)-Calico is what changed my entire life and connection with animals.

I'm Karen and I have had dogs as pets throughout my life. One of my favorite activities is dog walking, both my own dog and the dogs of my friends. There is something very satisfying to see a dog's tail wagging with enjoyment as they get ready for their walk and then continue wagging their tail as they complete their walk!

“Dedicated,vigilant walker with attention to detail”

Hi! My name is Luis and I just love dogs! They always bring a big smile to my face. I've been a walker for 2 years. I grew up with a cocker spaniel named Lulu and we always had other pets like fish, birds, rabbits, etc, so I know how important it is to care of our animal family members to keep them happy and healthy. I grew up in Atlanta, so I am very familiar with different neighborhoods in town and best routes to take. I love the outdoors, and can't wait to spend some time with your cute pup!

Dog Boarding in Gresham Park

Whenever a dog in or around the Gresham Park area needs rescuing, there’s no shortage of animal welfare groups and shelters ready to step up to the plate and help out. With Gresham Park’s close proximity to Atlanta, it’s well served by a number of paw-some organizations that specialize in helping pets in need.

LifeLine Animal Project is one such organization. This Atlanta-based non-profit is on a mission to end the euthanasia of healthy and treatable dogs and cats in metro Atlanta shelters. As the managing organization of Fulton County Animal Services and the DeKalb County Animal Services shelter, it aims to provide a range of innovative solutions to promote and improve animal welfare.

The group runs a private shelter in Avondale Estates, which welcomes approximately 500 dogs and cats through its doors each year. It also runs two LifeLine Spay & Neuter Clinics, where more than 100,000 animals have been fixed as part of an effort to reduce pet overpopulation. In 2016 alone, LifeLine ensured that more than 13,000 animals were adopted, rescued, or returned to their owners from the Fulton and DeKalb shelters, which means it is well on the way to achieving its goal of making metro Atlanta a no-kill community.

Atlanta Humane Society also has a long history of helping local animals. Founded in the 1870s, the organization is a widely-known pet adoption center, vet center, and educational program provider. Each year, it places around 9,000 dogs and cats into loving forever homes, and runs preventative initiatives and education programs to help promote awareness of the importance of animal welfare.

When it comes to protecting dogs and other animals in and around Gresham Park, both of these organizations are worthy of recognition.

There are canine contests, food trucks, live music, vendors, a Pug kissing booth, and even a top-secret anal gland expression booth (gross, but necessary). And you don’t have to be a Pug to attend, with leashed, well-behaved dogs of all shapes and sizes being more than welcome. Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for kids under the age of 12. Best of all, your dog gets in for free!
