I love dogs! I have experience with all sizes from XS Pomeranians to XL St. Bernard’s and Newfies, and everything in between. I'm a very active surfer, yogi, and hiker all over New England and love being out in the elements, including rain and snow. I spend a lot of time at the beach in any weather! I also work at South Boston Animal Hospital-you may have seen me behind the front desk. I would love to take your pup with me on a safe and fun adventure around the neighborhood!

Hi, my name is Rebekah. I grew up an animal lover in Maine, where I enjoyed living with a Blue Heeler/Sheppard mix named Sitka. I started walking and sitting for my friends’ and neighbors’ pets more than 5 years ago and have loved it ever since! Recently I’ve moved to Boston and am excited to be back in the area. I have experience with dogs of all sizes and ages. As an outdoorsy, active person, I’d love to meet your best friend and take them out for some fun and exciting exercise!

Dog Boarding in Brookline

The town of Brookline is a part of Greater Boston, which of course means that dog lovers and their furry friends can always enjoy easy access to a long list of dog-friendly attractions throughout the area. However, it also means that when dogs in and around Brookline suffer abuse, abandonment, or neglect, there are plenty of paw-some animal welfare groups ready to come to the rescue.

MSPCA-Angell — or the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals-Angell Animal Medical Center, as it is more formally known — is one such group. Founded in 1868, MSPCA-Angell is the second-oldest humane society anywhere in the United States. It provides hands-on veterinary care to thousands of animals in need each year and has a mission to protect animals, relieve their suffering, advance their health and welfare, prevent cruelty, and work to create a just and compassionate society.

With Animal Care and Adoption Centers in Boston, Cape Cod, and Nevins Farm, this wonderful organization has helped thousands of dogs find loving forever homes. As an independent non-profit, it’s also not affiliated with any national humane organization, so it is always on the lookout for more support.

The Animal Rescue League of Boston (ARL) is another champion for local animals. For almost 120 years, the ARL has been extending a helping paw to pets in need. With more than 500 volunteers and 100 staff members, it provides rescue services, veterinary care, and a successful adoption program.

Every animal that comes through the shelter’s doors is given the treatment and care it needs to prepare for life in a loving home. Donations and volunteer helpers are always welcome, so keep ARL in mind if you’re looking for a worthy animal rescue group to support.
