“Care that makes a best friend”

Animals are my life. I have always had pets growing up as a child and my love for them has grown into my adulthood even more. I have a passion for learning and understanding all different types of animals. My experience in pet care is from having my own pets and caring for family, friends and volunteering over the years. I have recently started my own dog on behavioral training for a better understanding of his mind and learned so much that I feel I can also provide your dog!

I've had my own dogs for almost my whole life. I have a chihuahua and a pitbull-boxer mix, so I love all kinds of dogs, sweet and feisty, small and large, shy and energetic. I have pet-sat for family and friends. While I am pet-sitting, I take them for walks to the park and around the neighborhood, feed them twice a day, give them treats, and play with them of course! You can count on me to make sure your dog is safe and has fun on our walks together.

Dog Boarding in Valparaiso

The community of Valparaiso, Indiana gathers around its dogs to build them up and make sure they are all taken care of. The homeless, neglected, and surrendered pets of the community and surrounding areas are in good hands when they enter through the doors of the loving shelters throughout Valparaiso. Committed volunteers donate their time, energy, talents, and love to nurse animals back to health and love them until they find their own loving homes and beyond. 

Heavily involved in educating the community and loving its pets, Lakeshore Paws Animal Shelter is doing big things for dogs of all sizes. The entirely volunteer-run non-profit has been caring for pets since it was founded in 2011. Four paws at a time, they are completing their mission of finding loving homes for all of the abandoned dogs within Valparaiso and the bordering communities. This organization holds frequent events in order to encourage the community further involved and education on pet-ownership. 

Open Arms Animal Shelter is another non-profit providing excellent care to the cats and dogs who need health care. Once animals are in the care of the volunteers they receive the entire range of necessary items such as vaccinations, spay/neutering services, healthy eating, and of course, carefully selected home placement in new fur-ever homes.
