“Dog lover with 20+ breed experience”

I'm Julia, and I love dogs! I'd love to take your pup for a quick walk around the neighborhood to burn off some energy or spend time with them while you're away for a sitting or boarding! I treat every dog as if they were my own, since as a student, I'm not in a place to have my own to care for right now. My customer service background, attention to detail and genuine care for all animals will ensure that you and your pup will have a great experience.

“Love long walks on the beach (do sidewalks count?)”

Hi! My name is Tori. I am a law school student who is currently working from home and would love to have a furry friend to keep me company while also keeping my activity level up! I have grown up with dogs of multiple sizes ranging from a Toy Poodle to a Golden Retriever. I just finished raising a German Shepard puppy (Luke) before he moved to Florida to live with my sister so as you could say, I’m pupper deprived.

Dog Boarding in Lansing

Homeless cats and dogs exist in every city in the United States. While animal shelters and rescue groups are trying to put an end to pet homelessness, the fight isn’t over. Fortunately for homeless pets in Lansing, Michigan, there are a couple of local shelters that will care for them while they wait for new owners and loving homes.

The Capital Area Humane Society in Lansing, Michigan, started in the basement of a school in 1935. Due to the dedication of the animal lovers in the area, the shelter continued to grow, and by 1987, it became the Capital Area Humane Society people in the area know today. While the shelter takes in almost 4,000 homeless pets each year, it has a 95.72 percent success rate for finding the animals that come into the shelter new homes. With space for 290 animals at any given time, the Capital Area Humane Society is constantly busy finding new homes for hundreds of pets.

Naked K9 and Small Dog Rescue, also located in Lansing, pulls dogs from kill shelters to give them another chance at life. The dogs that end up at Naked K9 and Small Dog Rescue are provided shelter, food, medical care, and spay/neuter operations. The group started to help naked dog breeds find loving homes, but quickly expanded to try to help all small dogs get new homes and a second chance with loving families. As a non-profit group, the organization runs off of fundraising, donations, and adoption fees. Foster families are extremely important to the organization as well.
