“I will treat your pet like family!”
Life long animal lover. I’ve had pets my entire life. I have experience with cats, dogs, chickens and many others. I’m experienced with senior pets, medication administration and can give them lots of TLC. Weekends I also do outreach work for the animal shelter and at local pet stores. Often times you’ll find the gang and I picking out toys and treats at the local Pet Store. Everyone goes home with a special goodie bag and is treated like family. I'm a member of PSI(Pet Sitters International.)

Known for its historic stockyards and tall grass plains, Sioux City, Iowa may not be the dog-friendliest city on your radar; however, in recent years, its grown to become a more welcoming atmosphere for pooches and their pawrents. You won't find a slew of doggo restaurants, pup boutiques, or even giant festivals and pawrades, but there's still plenty for you and your pooch to do in this area. Much of that is thanks to the local shelters in Sioux City.
The largest, and most well-known rescue is the Siouxland Humane Society. This organization has a storied past - founded in 1889, the shelter completed its latest update to their facility in 1999. In addition to expanding their physical borders, they've also focused on ever-increasing their programs. This facility is an open admission and full-service shelter that cares for thousands of pets every year! Their mission is to find fur-ever homes for 100 percent of the pets that come through their doors, but they also provide dozens of services like adoption, surrender, spay and neuter assistance, humane education, and veterinary care.
Another well-known organization in the area is Noah's Hope Animal Rescue. Though a fairly new rescue - it only started rescuing in 2007 and then became a registered non-profit in 2010 - this organization has saved hundreds of pups since their inception. With a special focus on the "underdog," they aim to help older, sick, and injured pups that have been abandoned, abused, or used-up by breeders. This organization nurses these pooches back to health, fosters them, and helps them find their fur-ever homes.
That time of year is quickly approaching - sleigh bells are ringing, fires are crackling, and the trees are being set up. But what's missing? Your Paws-N-Clause family photo, of course! Take your pooch down to the Woodbury Center Strip mall for pup-tastic photos of your holiday hound with the big guy. Hosted by Siouxland Humane Society, this event is drawing all the pawesome pups and their pawrents to come make some life-long memories and beautiful, winter-themed photos (that's right, we're talking backdrops, people).
Don't miss out on the perfect chance to dress your pooch up in a ridiculously cute holiday costume to pose for your ideal Christmas card!
The puppy pawty has begun! The Pets on Peninsula events are the perfect activity for you and your pooch to party at. If you like to bond with your pup over beers, meet other local pooches, and eat delicious food, then the Siouxland Humane Society's regular Pets on the Peninsula event is the place for you! These regularly scheduled Thursday night events are hot spots for all the local pooches. You and your pup can drink a beer, enjoy live music, eat tasty food, and bond with other pups at one of Sioux City's dog-friendly restaurants. Not only is it a great activity, but you'll also have the chance to donate money to the shelter while you and your pooch are pawrtying the night away!
Lace up your running shoes and get those paws stretched out; it's time for the Pets on Parade annual 5k run and 1-mile walk! This pup-tradition, hosted by Siouxland Humane Society, is a fun-filled day featuring a fundraising walk-run-or-trot for you and your canine! Run on your own with your pooch, or sponsor a team - either way, you'll be raising money for the shelter's animals and having a great time doing it! Once you and your tuckered-out pup are done with your run, you can relax and enjoy pet contests, silent auctions, doggy vendors, unique demonstrations, and pet-related booths! Don't miss out on this doggone great time!
You didn't read that wrong, we said Woofstock! Think about a party just as exciting and fun as Woodstock, but throw in a bunch of adorable (and adoptable) pooches, and you've got the right mental image (okay, maybe not quite as wild as Woodstock). Hosted by Siouxland Humane Society, you and your pup can join hundreds of other doggos and their pawrents for a fun night with a DJ, 20 onsite vendors (lots of them pet-specific), drinks, food, and a silent auction! There's a crazy tie-dye outfit contest, door prizes every 15 minutes, and more fun surprises at this event!
You can, of course, bring your pooch, but there's one catch - you have to be 21+ to get into this $5 event. Don't miss out on the chance to party with your tie-dye pup and help raise funds for the shelter animals!
The sole pup-friendly park in Sioux City is a quaint, shaded, beautiful area located in the heart of the city. This park features picnic tables in shelters, a playground, and sports fields, but most importantly, it features miles of trails that you and your pup can explore for hours. Make sure to keep your adventurous pooch on a leash while you explore the park, and don't forget to clean up after your doggo!
