Hello there, my name is Alexa! For the entirety of my life there has been a dog by my side. I've grown up around dogs of all ages, breeds, and backgrounds, which taught me patience, respect, and love for all animals. After walking dogs for Granada Animal Outreach during my stay in Granada, Nicaragua, I realized the true strength and love these animals have within their hearts. Such an experience will forever stick with me. As an avid hiker I love the feeling of the fresh air and exercise, as I'll hope your dog does as well! A healthy dog is a content dog after all. I will make it my top priority to treat your dog with patience, kindness, and the care deserved to ensure your Wag! experience is everything you imagined it to be!

“Every dog deserves love and attention!”

I’ve had dogs and cats my whole life and have always had a passion for them. I’ve walked dogs on Wag over 100 times, and over 100 miles! I also volunteered with the Humane Society for two years and was able to get lots of hands-on experience with others’ pets. I cared for dogs at adoption events and spay & neuter clinics. I’m a cat foster as well, so I can help with any cat needs you have! I would love to be your weekend walker! I care so much for dogs & would love to become your pup’s friend!

Dog Boarding in Richmond

Every time you adopt a pet from the Richmond SPCA, you enable them to save the life of another orphaned, abused or neglected animal in great need; finding a great companion has never been easier! Did you know that adopting a pet not only saves their lives but also improves your blood pressure, stress levels and cardiovascular health (from all those walks and runs you'll be taking your new pup on)? If you are able, consider taking in an animal in need. 

The Richmond SPCA has so many great programs and adoption perks. For instance, if you are over 60 and adopt a cat or dog older than 5 or are a veteran or active service member, you will receive a drastic adoption fee discount. The Richmond SPCA was founded in 1891 and has been saving animals ever since! They are a no-kill humane organisation dedicated to the principle that all life is precious. The Richmond SPCA is a national leader in humane care and education, having developed many lifesaving programs and services. They save the lives of more than 4,000 homeless animals each year and care for about 350 cats and dogs daily.  

The Richmond SPCA operates a low-cost, full-service veterinary hospital that also provides dental care for pets, microchipping services, routine surgeries, geriatric care, dietary management, and radiology services. They also have a free behavior helpline, pet behavior classes and also children's educational classes.  

If you are in need of a new best friend or wish to volunteer, foster or donate, the Richmond SPCA will be happy to meet you.
