Hi! My name is Juliann and I love dogs! I grew up having a Weimaraner named Maxy, and after she crossed the rainbow bridge, we got another Weim puppy named Cleo. She left us in 2014. I still miss them both and am always looking for opportunities to spend time with dogs as I cannot own my own at the moment. Aside from growing up with dogs, my experience includes spending the last 2 years volunteering at my local animal shelter where I walked, bathed, and socialized dogs on a weekly basis. And then there's all the times I've walked and dog sat for friends and neighbors..always a joy :)

Hi, my name is Jordan. First of all, I love dogs! I have been walking dogs on a regular basis since 2009. This includes walking my neighbor's dogs. I also acted as a long term dog sitter for an elderly woman who had to move into a home. I literally moved in and took care of her dog and her home full time! They had to sell the home and asked me to adopt the dog (Barkis) which I was thrilled to do and we are best buddies :)

“High quality care begins with trust”

Quality care begins with trust and I am committed to maintaining that trust through out the care of your pup. I was born to take care of dogs and have been lucky to play many different roles in their lives over the past 13 years. I worked at a dog daycare, boarding and grooming facility where I took part in every position there. I have also trained and fostered. My life would be empty without my dogs and there is always room for more in my heart. I can't wait to meet you and yours.

Dog Boarding in Royal Oak

In Royal Oak, the streets are always bustling with people traveling from one destination to the next. Located in this lively city, you will find the Royal Oak Animal Shelter, which is located at 1515 N Edgeworth Ave, Royal Oak, MI 48067. This animal shelter caters to a plentiful amount of puppers and kittens each year. This organization is under the management of the Royal Oak Police department as a city service; their goal is to help lost fur-children find their homes and rescue those four-legged friends who cannot help themselves. This shelter is a home for many animals who found themselves lost or abandoned by their owners. 

The organization is operated by the public, whose donations help keep the shelter open from year to year. Since the shelter is run by monetary donations, they also accept volunteers to help out in any way they can. The volunteers are the heart of this shelter as they continue to provide support and love for the animals and the surrounding community. If you find yourself interested in a volunteering position, you can download a volunteer application off of their website and turn it into the Royal Oak Police Department. 

Other ways to help this shelter include donating items to the animals in need. You can find their wishlist of items online on their website. They do have a page on their site that shows upcoming events for the shelter, so if you are ever interested in looking for more ways to help, be sure to check it out!
