Hi, I'm Ozette, I'm a senior at the University of Miami and am from Michigan. I have two dogs back home that live with my parents, a golden retriever/ yellow lab mix (Tucker), and a border collie/ black lab mix (Tilly). They're basically my best friends when I am home and I spend almost every second with them, so not having a dog here at school is hard. Which is one reason why I wanted to join Wag! I love all types of dogs and have always had a dog in my life, whether that was babysitting, fostering, training future assistance dogs, or just having them as pets, they've been in my life consistently. I'm familiar with big dogs, small dogs, high energy ones, well-trained to not very obedient ones, but have loved them all! So I hope I get the opportunity to get to meet your fur baby!

Hello, my name is Annalise and I want to take care of your pups! I love animals. I've been around dogs and cats since I was brought home from the hospital as a baby. I grew up with German Shepherds and Labradoodles mostly, but I love small breeds too! I currently do not live in a big enough space to accommodate adopting a dog of my own, so in the meantime, I would love the opportunity to take your dog for a walk and give it some love.

I have loved animals all my life and always had at least one in my home growing up. I grew up in Michigan with my dog Molly, a chocolate lab, who was a very sweet and happy dog. I'm the type of person that will befriend the dog when I go to someone's home. I am patient, responsible, caring, and understand that all dogs are different. I am capable of catering to whatever their needs may be, while keeping them happy and safe. Being active is an important aspect of my life, so on top of loving dogs, this is the perfect job for me!

Dog Boarding in Muskegon

The Muskegon Humane Society and Animal Rescue is a no-kill nonprofit association that serves the mistreated and abandoned cats and dogs in the Muskegon, Michigan area. This facility received the 2013 Outstanding Performance Award "Most Improved- Limited Admission" awarded by the Michigan Pet Fund Alliance for the quality of care and services they provide. During 2016, the facility took in a total of 158 dogs, of which 13 were puppies. They were able to place 157 dogs in fur-ever homes through their adoption process. 

The organization is committed to working with the animals "til every animal has a home". They offer a range of outreach and education programs. For children's organizations, such as 4-H clubs or girl scouts and boy scouts, they teach important life skills such as empathy, patience, respect and compassion by relating what animals need to feel safe and loved. The Pawsome Tutoring Program invites children to come to the shelter to read to the animals. The Open Paw Training Program is a national program in which they train owners on proper pet training techniques. People of all ables are able to connect to the animals. 

There are healthy senior citizens who would love to have a companion in thier lives  - the adoption process at this organization strives to place senior humans with senior pets. The shelter also takes dogs to visit with the elderly who live in assisted living through the Senior Enrichment Program. 

Fetch! Sit! Stay! Come! Learn how to train your pet and be a better owner by working with their highly qualified trainer who will work with the dogs and their owners at the facility or in their homes. The organization relies on donations and has partnerships with many businesses. They have a thriving volunteer program, further enriching the lives of citizens and canines in Muskegon.

At the northern end of the Norman F. Kruse Park located on the shore of Lake Michigan, you will find an area that is open for dogs to romp and play on the beautiful white sand.

There are two parking lots, nature trails, barrier dunes, accessible dune walkways, a playground, dune overlooks, picnic shelters, restrooms, and a basketball court at this beautiful "bark" overlooking Lake Michigan.

Wag your Tail on the Musketawa Trail

The Musketawa Trail is part of the nationwide Rails-to-Trails Conservancy. The trail had been an unused railway corridor. Today, it is a trail that pleases the senses as you travel along the 25-mile asphalt trail that connects Muskegon and Ottawa counties. There are a variety of ways to enjoy the path, including biking, inline skating, walking, or cross-country skiing! The trail will take you across bridges, into farmland areas, along the tree-lined pathways and into towns where you might stop for refreshment. It makes for a great walk for a human and their companion to savor the beautiful seasons of Michigan!
