Hi to all dog owners! My name is Caroline and I am a full time dog walker and pet sitter! I have always worked in animal care, starting in holistic pet shops when I was 16, and then I was a veterinary technician for almost 14 years!

Hi, my name is Tyler and I'm from San Jose, California. I've been around dogs of all sizes my whole life but have owned labs and a boxer pointer mix. I have dog sat, boarded, and walked multiple dogs over the last two years for family and friends. Some of the breeds I have watched are shitzu, labrador retriever, and English mastiff. I am looking forward to meeting your furry friends!
“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!

“Let’s pack snacks and make tracks!”
I’ve always loved dogs! I’ve had a lot of experience with learning to train my personal dogs. I volunteered at a local shelter in my city, and I often foster dogs as well. I had to give emergency birth to two liters of puppies for an elderly neighbor and after the second one I paid to have her dog altered. My three boys are my life. They are the most perfect fur babies I could have been paired with! I can’t wait to me YOUR furmily! I have been away from Wag! for a long time, but I’m back!

My pets are my children. When I got my dog 9 years ago, I took every step to train her properly and make sure she received the care and attention she needed. I can’t imagine life without pets. I’m often the person that bonds easily with animals everywhere I go.

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.
