““Dogs do speak, but only to those who listen””

My name is Jennifer, and my pup’s name is Brody. He is a 4 year old Shih Tzu-Schnauzer mix & my best friend! I am the mother of 4 grown children, I live & work in the Plymouth-Canton area, have incredible love & respect for all of our four legged friends.I have always had a deep love for animals. While not all pups are initially friendly and cuddly, I’ve yet to meet one that if given time and patience, was not accepting and lovable.

Hey my name is Carmine! I’m currently looking for a full time engineering job and I figured it would be great to do Wag in the meantime . My dog Millie is almost 8 years old and she’s the sweetest thing ever. She’s some a Jack Russel/Italian Greyhound Mix and while she’s one of the greatest things I’ve got going right now she doesn’t love to walk all that much. So I’d like to brighten up my days by meeting some new dogs and getting some light exercise.

My name is Carol and I grew up in a house full of dogs. There were more dogs in our house than kids, and there were 4 of us. My parents were dog trainers, and their dogs, Viszla, were trained in obedience, show and field trials. While I never participated in shows I accompanied my family to all events and assisted handling the dogs. After I was on my own I used all the techniques I learned at home with my dogs. Using positive reinforcement I was able to enjoy a pack of three dogs ranging from 6 pounds to 96 pounds. They were a well behaved group in and around the kitchen and out on a neighborhood walk. I always made sure they knew that I was in charge, and in exchange we enjoyed many happy hours together.

Dog Boarding in Ann Arbor

The homeless pets in or near Ann Arbor, Michigan have a safe haven in the animal shelters nearby. With the Humane Society of Huron Valley and Last Day Dog Rescue close by, cats and dogs without homes are found new homes and families.

The Humane Society of Huron Valley houses stray cats and dogs, reduces the pet overpopulation problem by spaying and neutering animals, and tries to find new homes for all homeless animals in the Ann Arbor area. The HSHV is a non-profit shelter that provides compassionate, loving care for all the pets that come through their doors. The HSHV attempts to stop animal cruelty by educating the community on proper care for pets.

The Last Day Dog Rescue is another non-profit animal rescue near Ann Arbor. The organization is a no-kill operation that never euthanises healthy, adoptable animals. Instead, Last Day Dog Rescue tries to find homes for each and every animal that comes through the door. The rescue has saved thousands of cats and dogs from euthanasia due to their age, breed, disabilities, or illnesses. Every animal is given a second chance with Last Day Dog Rescue, even those who are difficult to work with or who are sick!

Ann Arbor, Michigan, residents who are looking to add a new canine or feline family member can visit either of the above animal shelters to meet their next animal companion. Both shelters will work with families to find the best fit for their family and lifestyle.
