“Extreme Animal Lover! Hug your furbaby!”

Hi! I am a huge dog lover (currently have 2 Goldens) who walks my dogs every day (unless it's raining hard or there's a severe wind chill). I love all dogs. I do not walk dogs on prong collars. I prefer a harness or gentle leader. I am a school teacher and have lived in my home for about 15 years. I've hired dog walkers in the past myself (when my dogs were puppies and needed to get out more on work days). I am the person who, when not with my dogs, stops to meet other dogs along my way.

“Looking for a trustworthy dog walker/pet-sitter?”

I spend most of my time caring for animals, whether they are my own or animals that I work with. I enjoy every second of it. As a teenager, I volunteered for my local animal shelter in Texas. It was a wonderful learning experience and showed the importance of standing up for those who don’t have a voice. The impact of that volunteer experience led me to become vegan. I’ve been an animal activist for the past 10 years, and it’s been a rewarding and eye-opening journey.

Hello! I've loved dogs ever since I was a little girl but because of my family's living situation i have never been able to own one myself. Because of this I am filled with love and knowledge for an animal that has no outlet. I do own 3 cats and a bunch of fish wich receive much love and spoilage. Hopefully with the profits I make from walking I will be able to continue to spoil them!

“Grad student seeks dog company”

I would love to take care of your dog. I grew up with mini-poodles, and for the past 6 years I have taken care of a plethora of dogs - dog walks, doggy daycare, dog sitting and boarding. I love dogs, but I'm not quite ready for one (or two or three) of my own just yet, so in the meantime I'd love to spend time with yours! I'm comfortable giving medicine, specialized diets, etc.

Dog Boarding in Freeport

The little coastal town of Freeport, Maine has an enormous heart for furry friends. From dogs and cats to birds and pigs, there are shelters and rescues based all around the bay area to serve and protect animals in need and thus the local community. 

The primary shelter caring for and rehoming the stray, abandoned, and homeless dogs of Freeport is the Coastal Humane Society. The nonprofit charity organization, functioning as a shelter for animals in need and a companion animal adoption agency, was founded in 1950 by a group of citizens concerned about the welfare of the area's homeless animals. The Coastal Humane Society serves the animals and people of several towns along Maine's mid-coast, helping more than 3,000 stray, abandoned, or abused companion animals every year. 

The shelter's staff of 20 along with a strong network of more than 100 volunteers work together to provide services including animal care and shelter, adoption,  pet owner resources, rabies and microchip clinics, and animal welfare advocacy. Every animal that comes through their doors is spayed/neutered, vaccinated, medically and behaviorally assessed, and treated as needed by the shelter's veterinarian. 

The Coastal Humane Society truly believes in the special bond between animals and their humans. It is much more than just owning a pet, but rather having a relationship with a loving companion, a loyal best friend. Together with their volunteers and the local community, the organization strives to enhance the animal-human bond, educate and advocate animal welfare, protect and save animals' lives, provide exemplary shelter and care, and find every adoptable animal a loving forever home.
