Hi, My name is Paul and I have had rescued three dogs since 1997. I had a large Bull Mastiff / St. Bernard mix named Veego that passed away at around 15 in 2012. I have had a German Shepherd since 2005, Honey is currently 14 years old. I have also had a Staffordshire Bull Terrier named Ben since 2007 that is about to be ten. I have pet sat for lots of friends in the past. Pitbulls, Rotweiller, Labradors, Boxer, Pug, Chihuahuas, French Bulldog, and a few Terriers. Seeing any dog always puts a smile on my face, from abandoned rescues to show dogs. I enjoy learning their unique personalities and quirks. I will treat your dog (and home) like I do my own, with love and care. I've also been vegetarian / vegan for over 25 years and like to stay active. Reliable transportation for North Shore and Boston.

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.
