I've always been around animals and dogs since I could walk, and when I was old enough to work I knew there would be no better fit than working with animals! I have volunteered at a shelter and worked professionally with animals in a retail environment. Due to a heavy school schedule I had to leave that job but now that Wag! exists I can still work with pups!

I am a semi retired professional with a passion for animals. Growing up on a farm in North Carolina I was exposed to a lot of dogs: hunting dogs, house dogs, guard dogs, herding dogs, etc. The advantage of living on the farm was that you got to play with the working animals when they weren’t working and I spent a lot of time with dogs learning valuable lessons of how they interact with people and other animals and how they think. All through my life I have been around dogs and cats. I have owned three dogs of my own and have had relationships with other dogs belonging to roommates housemates and neighbors. I am very attuned to the challenges of having a pet in the city and understand the importance of seeing that the animals get the proper attention and care. Caring for dogs is not just a job for me it’s a passion and it’s important that I give each dog I encounter the same attention that I would give my own dog.

Dog Boarding in Cicero

Dogs are our faithful companions, remaining loyal through thick and thin, so it’s only fair that we look after our furry friends when they fall on tough times. When dogs in Cicero and surrounding areas find themselves out of luck and in need of a second chance, there are plenty of rescue groups and animal welfare organizations ready to give them the care, love, and hope they need.

Chicago Canine Rescue Foundation (CCRF) is a perfect example of this. Founded in 2001, CCRF is committed to finding permanent, loving homes for homeless dogs in the greater Chicago area. Since that time, it has saved the lives of more than 6,000 dogs and cats. The dogs CCRF cares for come from open-intake facilities, rural rescue partners who lack the resources for adoptions, and from families who can no longer look after their pets.

CCRF then provides the medical treatment, behavioural support, and adoption services each animal needs to find a responsible, caring owner. It welcomes dogs of all ages, sizes, and backgrounds, and is always on the lookout for more volunteers and donations.

PAWS Chicago is another group dedicated to saving the lives of canines in need in and around Chicago. Established in 1997, PAWS is on a mission to build a no-kill Chicago, to end the overpopulation of homeless animals, and set higher standards of animal welfare.

Operating on a no-kill philosophy, PAWS runs a robust adoption program, spay and neuter services, and community engagement and outreach programs. It also relies on donations, volunteers, and foster carers to help pets in need, so why not find out how you can help?
