“A walk a day keeps the vet away”

Hello my names is Rocio! I have many years of experience in caring for pets of all kinds. I can assure you that I will treat your pet like they were my own, not only because I am an animal lover, but because it is how I want my pet treated while I am away. My family consists of 3 rescue dogs with very particular personalities, a Schnoodle, Boston-Shiba mix and an Akita mix all the way from Thailand! I absolutely cannot wait to meet you and your pets and take great care of them!

“Responsible and reliable!”

Hi! My name is Abby and I am a KU graduate student here in Lawrence, KS. I love walks, especially so I can break up my studying and computer-time. I live with a 5 year-old yorkiepoo and a 4 year-old schnauzer mix, so I am well-accustomed to both high and low energy pups. I think one of the best things for dogs is exercise and exploration, so I hope to give that to your dog whether you are at home or at work. I cannot wait to meet your best friend(s)!

Hi, I'm Annie! I've always adored dogs and I can't wait to meet yours! I have two dogs at home: Tucker, a mellow Chihuahua-mix, and Hazel, a young and flamboyant English Setter-Border Collie mix. In addition, I love volunteering at The Humane Society and helping my family and friends care for their pups when needed by dog-sitting, walking, or just loving! Every dog is so unique, with different quirks and qualities, but one thing that remains the same is that every dog deserves the very best. I am a business student at Missouri State University, previously from the Kansas City area, and enjoy exploring this beautiful city. I'd love to show you and your special pet a wonderful Wag! experience!

I’m a freelancer who walks dogs in her spare time. I grew up with dogs of all sizes (three labs, a Rottweiler, a Boston terrier and a Yorkshire terrier) and currently am the proud owner of an adorable Doberman! I love walking for Wag! because it gives me the chance to hang out with all kinds of dogs and each one has their own unique personality. I always go above and beyond and follow all owner instructions to make sure the doggos I walk have an excellent experience! I’m excited to meet your pup.

My name is George, I am currently a dog father of two. I foster, adopt, and raise dogs who are considered difficult to adopt or are disabled. I am very well informed on training and I have experience adjusting very distressed dogs into family environments. I am also very active and I believe that walking dogs often and for long distances is very important for the mental and physical health of dogs. I have a long history of taking care of dogs and working with the Humane Society.

Dog Boarding in Lawrence

The Lawrence Humane Society is an incredibly significant resource to the city and the entire Douglas County, providing assistance to more than 3,800 animals every year! While nurturing the human-animal bond, the nonprofit provides loving care, shelter, and advocacy to homeless, abandoned, and abused animals. Originally founded in 1951 as the Douglas County Humane Society Inc., the organization fuels all of their efforts with compassion for animals and the drive to give back to their community. 

They are dedicated to placing 100% of adoptable animals into loving, responsible homes and providing exceptional care while they reside within the shelter. Since 2008, the organization has given shelter and care to more than 43,000 animals in need, providing them with robust behavioral and medical programs for a healthy life and the best chance of finding a forever family! The Lawrence Humane Society is the animal welfare leader of the region and ensures that every animal that comes through their doors is given exceptional care, operating under the sheltering best practices. 

Currently, they are designing and fundraising for a new facility so that they can better serve the animals of Lawrence with a much more efficient space for existing services and the means to develop new programs and services aimed at improving community education and engagement. The Lawrence Humane Society believes that every single pet deserves a chance at a happy, healthy life and they have set out to change the lives of people and animals in their community by providing leadership and resources on animal welfare, health, and education.
