I have a dog myself, her name is Faith and she makes me happy everyday seeing her face. I love taking her on walks and letting her get some exercise!

“happiness is four paws and a wagging tail”

Hi! My name is Regan. I'm a 22 year old animal lover from Allentown, PA and I attend graduate school in Westminster, MD. I have been walking dogs with Wag for almost 2 years now. Prior to college, I would pet sit a variety of animals, especially dogs, for families around my neighborhood. I love dogs and can't wait until I can raise one of my own after graduating. I am also a very active person so this job seemed like the perfect mix for me!

I have been a dog-owner (my border-collie, J.J.) and dog-sitter as a teenager for many personal and family friends in the Baltimore County area. After graduating college in 2013, I began a recurring dog-walk arrangement with an old roommate for both a recently rescued German Shepherd (Storm) and a Yorkie (Stella), and have been happily working as a professional dog-walker and sitter ever since. I love meeting new dogs and making them happy with walks, playing, running, feeding, and having fun!

My love for animals began at a very early age. There hasn’t been a time in my life when pets weren’t a part of it. Pets are my passion! Today I am a proud pet Mom to Wendy. The coolest dog on the block. She became cool because of me! As a dog walker extraordinaire I took the tools that I used with Wendy to enable ALL of my dogs to be the coolest! Before I walk them we have a routine that I call You Were born to SPARKLE! Your pet will get a mini massage, an exquisite healthy treat.We always drink some unfiltered H2O and use a sparkling dog leash. Your pets will have no responsibilities or cares in the world. Playing with tons of toys and sleeping on the comfiest beds and always walked on a designer leash that I have created and being pampered 24/7. Of course we all could get used to that! If you want your pet to be the coolest and trendiest dog on the block while being pampered you know who to cal. REDD, the fashionable dog walker on the block!

I've been an animal lover since I was a little girl. My first dog was a German Shepherd named Bingo, we were inseparable. I've always been a natural with animals. However, that never stopped me from expanding on my knowledge, my favorite topic being body language. When my friends and family need someone to watch their dogs I am the first they ask, because they know I will take excellent care of their loved ones.

Dog Boarding in Westminster

The staff and volunteers of the Humane Society of Carroll County have a mission: to save and protect all neglected, abused, abandoned and hungry animals and find them loving, forever homes. Don't dogs just make life better? Imagine making a dog's life better by making them a member of your family. If you are wanting to feel that good feeling in your heart, won't you please stop by the Humane Society of Carroll County and meet some of their friendly furry souls? We are certain you will fall in love more than once. If you have any questions before you adopt your furry friend, the staff will be happy to answer all of them.  

If you aren't able to adopt right now and want to help the pets at the Humane Society in other ways, please consider making a tax-deductible monetary donation or a donation of hard goods such as bleach, paper towels, towels, toys, treats, food, crates, bedding, collars, leashes or gas cards for transporting the dogs to and from adoption events and the vet.  You can also help the animals by volunteering your time. There are so many jobs that need doing to provide the pets of HSCC a safe and clean living environment. 

Contact the shelter and volunteer to do some cleaning inside or outside of the facility, to coordinate adoption or fundraising events, to walk the dogs, to clean the cages or to even cuddle with the older, more timid animals at the shelter. Just stop by to say hello to the doggies! They love visitors. Maybe, just maybe while you are there, you will find a new forever friend.  

The HSCC holds many community outreach events from educational seminars on proper nutrition, spaying and neutering your pet and fundraisers like their barn sales and tails at twilight. Check out their website for their many events throughout the year.
