“Atlanta’s top walker!”
Hello! I am a life-long-dog-lover with over 20 years of combined dog owning experience. My current dog is a 14 year old border collie rescue who I adopted as a 9 month old puppy. I have volunteered at Furkids as well as Cherokee County Humane Society and am a passionate advocate of dog welfare. I have a degree in Biology and am an avid runner. I have been hiking and running with my dog for years and am looking forward to the opportunity to walk yours. : ) Covid vaccinated ✅

Hope all is well, my name is DeCarlo Tatum Jr, I live in Atlanta Ga. My experience with dogs has been an amazing journey. My love for dogs begin at a young age, in high school I wanted to become a Veterinarian. After I graduated from high school, I was bestowed the opportunity to intern as a vet tech at the Atlanta Humane Society for a summer project, in the city of Atlanta. It was an amazing experience, I also had the opportunity to work for one of the most popular dog day cares in Atlanta, Ga, Wag A Lot. There, I bathed dogs, dog sit and I was a lead Wag for both yards.Last but not least I cared for my father and mother dogs ( American PitBulls) for 12years!! I believe that your pet and I will develop a great bond, I believe that pets are people too!!

There are a number of wag-tastic, dog-themed charities that are focused on helping the disadvantaged pupulation in Marietta, Georgia.
The Homeless Pets Foundation is one of the best no-kill shelters based in the area. This pet-saving organization was founded in 1998 by an inspired veterinarian who decided to dedicate his skills to the homeless pet population in his area. The volunteers are dedicated to nursing injured and sick dogs and cats back to health, teaching responsible pet ownership, and finding fur-ever homes for their sweet and playful animals. Every Saturday, the non-profit holds adoption events for dogs from 12-4. On Sundays, dogs and cats are available for adoption also from 12-4. The Homeless Pets Foundation is run completely by volunteers who donate their time and their hearts to the sweetest beings on four legs.
Our Pal’s Place is another great shelter in Marietta. This no-kill pet adoption facility and education center focuses on saving pets from euthanasia, helping them find forever homes, and assisting pet owners in training and care. The staff at Our Pal’s Place is 100% volunteer-based and they are a pivotal part of saving sweet animals all around Marietta. The shelter is open from 1-5 on Saturdays and Sundays. A huge part of their mission is helping pet owners train their loving fur babies. Trained pets are more likely to be happy, and we think we can all agree that happy pets make the world go ‘round!
Both of these pup-saving organizations ensure that pets are healthy, neutered, dewormed, and totally vaccinated before they are thoughtfully placed in their forever homes. This helps promote the care and compassion that all pets deserve.
On the second Saturday of every month, there is a Pug Meetup Group at Sweat Mountain Dog Park from 10 am until 1 pm. For just a $1.00 donation to cover the monthly Meetup.com fee, you can join the crew with your cute, little smush-face. Any extra money that you're able to give is donated to a pug rescue group. It's a good idea to bring some water along, although there is a doggie-water fountain at the nearby dog park. The group meets no matter the weather, so get your outdoor gear on and go have some fun!
Sweat Mountain Dog Park is not just for pug Meetups, it is a great destination for any pup who loves to play! The large grounds have plenty of room to frolic and make for a great environment for dogs to socialize. There are nice trees that provide shade and seating for humans throughout the park. A water faucet is available for thirsty pups, and there are bag stations for picking up after your fur-ball. The park is tucked away and has a laid-back and friendly vibe among dog owners and their pets. Everyone is there to have fun with the dogs they love!
There is a pawesome dog park called Lewis Dog Park, where dogs are permitted to play off-leash with each other. Some park-goers suggested bringing your pup on a leash at first and then letting him run free once he is comfortable. There are two areas in this dog park, one for large dogs and one for small dogs. This guarantees happy pups and safe play time! There are plenty of picnic tables to accommodate pet owners who want to take a seat and watch their sweet dogs gleefully play. Taking dogs to dog parks helps them socialize, exercise, and play with their friends!
Every year for St. Patrick’s day, there is a St. Paw-Trick’s Day Rescue Dog Olympics. This event partners with pet shelters and support organizations to celebrate and bring awareness to rescued pets. All dogs are welcome on-leash to this day of fun. For humans, there will be a delicious variety of food trucks and drinks. Festival hours are from 11 am until 4 pm. Registering your pup is not required, though it is an option. Pre-registered participants are able to view the games list early, so those more competitive pups may want to register early! For those who do not pre-register, the game stations are not announced until closer to the event and will be available on their Facebook page.
Every year, the state designates an entire week to the love of animals. During this week, many locations in Marietta will be hosting fun, pet-themed events to celebrate just how much they care about their furry friends! In addition to adoption events, there will also be park festivals, anniversary parties and pet doof drives. To top it all off, there will be Christmas parades spotlighting local animals! So come check out all of the amazing events that this week has to offer. Any and all dog-lovers will feel right at home - and have a lot of fun too!
