“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!

Hey! I'm Cameron, a lifelong dog lover and transplant from the South. I've been living in Kansas City for almost 3 years and I've grown to love and appreciate this city. I love getting outdoors with my own dogs, but sometimes they can't keep up. So I thought it would take this opportunity with Wag to meet more people and pups and learn more about Kansas City.

Dog Boarding in Shawnee

Shawnee is a suburb of Kansas City on the Kansas side of the border. For homeless pets in the area, access to both the Kansas and Missouri side of the border can be a blessing. With numerous local shelters in the area, it can be hard to decide which one to visit first, but there are a couple local favorites: The Pet Connection and KC Pet Project.

The Pet Connection is a non-profit animal welfare organization that focuses on finding new homes for the homeless pets of the Kansas City area. Located in Olathe, which is only a few minutes away from Shawnee, The Pet Connection is probably the most convenient shelter for those living in Shawnee. This organization has been helping animals find new homes since 1999. Since opening, more than 7,000 animals have been placed in new homes, with hundreds of those being rehabilitated dogs and cats. The group has also helped more than 8,000 animals receive free or low-cost spay or neuter services!

The KC Pet Project is a huge organization in the Kansas City area. The KC Pet Project is a non-profit that helps more than 10,000 animals find new homes each year. This animal welfare organization has been working with other local groups to create a No-Kill Kansas City, by providing spay and neuter services and helping all the healthy, adoptable pets in the region find new homes instead of relying on euthanasia. Currently, the organization has three different adoption centers where potential pet parents can go to find a new pooch.
