“4.96 Star Rated - Top Walker - Thank You!”

Hello, I am Cindy and I love dogs. All kinds of dogs. I am retired and decided I want to walk other peoples dogs since both my lovers died this year of old age. I miss having a dog around very much but want to do some travelling right now. I would love the chance to spoil your dogs rotten just like I used to do mine. For the past 6 years, I have spent many hours a day helping shelter dogs get relocated out of Kentucky (where the animal protection laws are the worst in the nation).

“I love animals and I can't wait to meet your pet!”

Hi, I'm Kenzie! To me, pets count as additional family members. I have lived with cats and dogs for my entire life. I'm familiar with all sizes and breeds. I've worked with many families for years, house- and pet-sitting and then I started walking for Wag in March of 2018. I love getting to know the pets I work with, because I think that each and every animal has their own quirks and personality. Thank you for taking the time to get to know me. I can't wait to do the same with your furry friend!

Dog Boarding in Shawnee

Shawnee Mission, Kansas, isn’t known for its homeless dog and cat populations, but that doesn’t mean the problem doesn’t exist. With such close proximity to Kansas City, each year hundreds of pets are abandoned or get lost in the area. Luckily, there are great animal shelters around that help care for these animals and try to return them to their owners or find them new homes.

The Pet Connection, located in Mission, Kansas, is a local favorite due to its dedication to helping homeless animals in the area find new homes. In addition to adoption services, The Pet Connection also offers rehabilitation services for aggressive pets, obedience training classes, animal socialization, and rehoming to pet owners in the area. The group also helps spay and neuter animals to prevent a rise in the homeless pet population. Since 2002, the organization has helped almost 14,000 animals in the area get spayed or neutered for free or at a low cost. The Pet Connection also helps other local shelters by providing supplies and educational opportunities.

KC Pet Project is one of the most well-known animal welfare organizations in the Kansas City area. This non-profit group works to eradicate unnecessary euthanasia for healthy, treatable animals. In addition to offering adoption services, the group also helps reunite lost pets with their owners and provides pet ownership education to the community. The main goal of the KC Pet Project is to help homeless pets find new, permanent homes. With three different adoption locations, the group helps thousands of pets find new homes each year.
