“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.

Hello, I’m Miranda! My first job was walking my neighbor’s basset hounds. Until Wag it was the best job I’d ever had! I have experience with dogs of all sizes and breeds. I always take my time when getting to know a new dog and let them make the first move. The safety and happiness of your pet and the security of your home are my biggest concerns; I’ll treat them both as I would my own. I’m an avid walker, but it’s so much better with a canine companion! I can’t wait to meet yours.

Dog Boarding in Scarborough

With 12 animal shelters in and around Scarborough, Maine, there is plenty of love in the area to give to all of the animals who need it. The Animal Rescue League is just one of the many organizations dedicated to improving the lives of the surrendered, neglected, and homeless animals in the area. The organization aims to connect people and dogs by providing education and a careful adoption process, protecting both pets and their fur-ever humans. 

The Animal Welfare Society is located just a short distance from Scarborough. This non-profit humane society is dedicated to saving the lives of animals all around the community. They have an in-house veterinary clinic, an adoption center, and a care center for the animals. The veterinary clinic ensures that the animals in the shelter will get immediate care, but animals from outside of the shelter can also get care at the clinic. 

The Coastal Humane Society serves over 3,000 stray animals in the surrounding areas of Freeport, Maine. This shelter is one of the largest in Maine, and was actually started by a staff made up entirely of volunteers in a barn. The dedicated support staff fulfills their mission of finding the owners of lost animals, giving forever homes to their sweet dogs, and providing support and education to pet owners and the community!
