“Full-time pet caretaker (& pet lover & cuddler)”

Hello, I’m Kelsey! I have always been a MAJOR dog lover. When I was really young, I used to wish for a pet puppy each year as I blew out my birthday candles. My wish came true in 2003 with a rescued papillon mix, and since then I have owned three wonderful dogs. In 2010, I started walking and "dog-sat" for a variety of breeds- everything from chihuahuas and dachshunds to pit bulls and boxers! I cannot wait to meet your fur-baby and give them all the exercise and attention that they need!

“9/10 dogs think my jokes are hilarious.”

Hey there! My name is Adam. I am a 32 year-old cancer warrior, teacher, author, and dog-lover-extraordinaire. I've raised dogs most of my life and they've all turned out fairly well. Most are off to college now and I'm missing them dearly. Thus, I am here looking for new canine-friends. I am an avid cyclist, runner and thoroughly love long walks/talks with pups. Hopefully your pup and I can bond over politics and 30-60 minute jaunt!

“Asheville professional providing great dog care”

I am a young professional living in Asheville and looking to help some people out by walking their dogs! I grew up with a dog but don't currently have one because my space is too small and wouldn't give a dog enough room to get out and play. I like being outside and walking a lot, so this is a great chance to do that more while spending time with dogs too!

When I was 5 years old my family got two dogs, who became the two animals that taught me responsibility. They also inspired my love for animals, and now I have a Bachelors of Science degree in Fisheries, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology from North Carolina State University. I have had volunteer experience at a dog and cat animal shelter, owned animals of a variety of species, and worked as a kennel technician and can comfortably administer various forms of medicine. My idea part time or temporary job is one outside and with animal which is why being a pet walker/sitter is perfect.

Dog Boarding in Asheville

Asheville is home to several shelters, rescues, and nonprofits committed to promoting animal welfare, caring for homeless pets, and providing education and resources for the local community.

The Asheville Humane Society was established in 1984, originally as the Buncombe County Friends for Animals Inc., to reunite, rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome the needy animals of Asheville and the surrounding area. In September 2010, they partnered with the county to operate two facilities: the society's Adoption and Education Center and the Buncombe County Animal Shelter. Together, their dedicated work includes sheltering homeless animals, adoption services, a foster program, low-cost vaccine clinics, educational programs, and food and veterinary care assistance. All animals are accepted with open arms through the Buncombe County Shelter building and provided with a warm bed, food, medical attention, vaccinations, behavioral consultation, and a comfortable space to live. The organization is committed to providing every animal that comes through their doors a new lease on life with a loving family of their own. As the only open admission shelter in the county, the Asheville Humane Society will never say they're full or close their doors to any animal in need.

Another compassionate organization serving the animals of Asheville is Brother Wolf Animal Rescue. The Asheville location of this charity was founded in 2007 to provide life-saving programs and resources to make entirely no-kill communities. Since then, the rescue has grown to have four additional chapters in various cities. The Asheville chapter works to rescue the city's homeless animals, find them loving homes, and advocate for animal welfare. Brother Wolf strongly believes in community engagement as an outlet to fuel its no-kill mission, recruit volunteers, and successfully operate their adoption and foster programs.
