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 Chelsea

Cross the Mystic River from Boston and you’ll find yourself in Chelsea, a city where there are always plenty of animal lovers and rescue groups ready to help out when dogs fall on hard times!

The Animal Rescue League of Boston (ARL) is a perfect example of this commitment to caring for our furry friends. Founded in 1899, the ARL is committed to helping animals in need stay in safe and healthy homes. With a team of 520 volunteers and over 100 staff members, this paw-some organization assists thousands of animals each year!

As well as working to prevent cruelty and neglect, the ARL provides rescue services, veterinary care, and a robust adoption program to help animals in need. And with an increasing focus on keeping animals out of shelters and in the communities where they belong, the ARL will keep on helping pets in and around Chelsea well into the future.

Last Hope K9 Rescue is another great Boston group dedicated to helping animals in need get a second chance at life. Founded in 2012, this inspirational non-profit has saved the lives of almost 6,000 dogs. Run completely by volunteers, Last Hope welcomes all breeds of dogs and also doesn’t discriminate on the basis of age or pre-existing medical conditions.

The group operates on the simple belief that every animal deserves to know love. With no shelter facility to call its own, it relies on a network of loving foster homes to provide care for the dogs it rescues from high-kill shelters. Thanks to the tireless work of these volunteers, those animals get a shot at a brighter future.
