“I’d love to walk your dog!”

Hello, my name is Stephanie. I'm an artist and I love animals, have since I was a kid. I've always been told that I am a calm, kind, patient and observant person. Because of that, I feel like it’s always been easy for me to understand animals and get along with them. I'm currently working with a group of animators to create a short animated film and studio. I've spent a bit too much time indoors lately, so I'd love to get out more, and to do it while walking a dog would be a big plus!

Hi! My name is Lauren. Thanks for considering me to walk your canine companion! I'm a lifelong dog lover and always excited to meet new dog friends.

I pride myself on being trustworthy, reliable, and conscientious, and will treat your pet with the same love and kindness as I would my own. I appreciate the trust placed in me by the owners and dogs and will do my best to earn it on every walk. Let's get walking!

Hello my name is Steven. I have been living with, and caring for all kinds of animals throughout my life. But dogs are my joy. I am freelance artist by profession, and dogs are one of my top subject matter. With my dad being an ex Dog show handler, judge and breeder, with 2 dogs of my own, not a day goes by where I don’t interact with a dog. I have been walking dogs professionally for about a year now. I have had several dog training classes. And I take them every few years to keep myself current. So I am looking forward to being able to getting to know your dog/pup and taking them for a walk.

Hello! I grew up in Connecticut, and had a wonderful dog named Quincy who was the love of my life. I regularly volunteered at animal shelters and at a stable, so I have lots of experience with animals. I have been to the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Kanab, Utah twice, where I fed, socialized, walked, and cleaned up after their dogs as well as other animals. I have also volunteered as a walker at their New York adoption programs. I am responsible and always want to do what is best for you and your dog. I adore animals and greatly look forward to meeting your beloved pet!

Dog Boarding in Springfield

It takes a community of dog lovers coming together in order to provide care, love, and fur-ever homes to dogs all over. This kind of community is alive and well throughout Springfield, Massachusetts and the surrounding areas. Dedicated volunteers provide the very best care in order to ensure that dogs are cared for from the moment they are found, and beyond the moment they are taken home by their loving humans. Supporters, volunteers, staff, and volunteers put their minds and their hearts together to improve the well-being of dogs in need.

With one location in Leverett and one in Springfield, the Dakin Humane Society makes an impact on more than 20,000 animals each year! This non-profit moves animal care to new levels of success. By taking in animals of all kinds and nursing them back to health, the dedicated staff set up these animals for success in the future. Training resources are offered to pets within the shelter and to pets and their owners from throughout the community. 

Rainbow Rescues Inc. in Chicopee provides foster homes to animals that will provide loving care which will continue through to their forever home with their new humans. The entirely volunteer-run organization ensures that pets receive proper medical attention, behavior interventions, and endless amounts of love.
