I have spent the past 20+ years in an office and now I get to be outside that window walking our best friends rain or shine. I grew up on a farm in Wisconsin where I learned to take care of many kinds of animals but I saw first hand how smart and caring dogs are and will never forget our hero. Skipper our little Boston Terrier followed Joe our large Shepard/Lab mix all over the farm and one day right into a creek he couldn't get out of. Joe ran home barking out of control and lead me back to saved his little buddy from drowning. Since then Tyson our fluffy white Samoyed and I passed our training classes and he learned to walk beside me instead of pulling me like I was a sled. I also have two Gran dogs, Reeses a Springer Spaniel who searches the whole house until he finds me when he visits and Simba a Golden Retriever who I just taught how to high-five. Dogs are amazing animals that deserve all the love back they give so unconditionally!

“Dog walker extraordinaire!”

Hi. My name is Michele and I love dogs! I applied for a job once because the teaser ad said "Need graphic designer–must love dogs." That's me! Graphic designer and I love dogs. I have owned 2 golden retrievers, a shepherd mix, 2 labrador retrievers, and now have a Staffordshire Terrier named Eva. I am self-employed and when I found out about WAG!, I thought what a great way to take a break during the day and help someone out at the same time! So, I applied to be a dog walker.

“It's always a nice day for a walk !”

Hello, I'm Tuan. I recently retired from a long career as a software engineer in RTP. Now, my daily exercise is to walk and explore the various neighborhoods in the triangle. I'd love to have your dog as my companion. The walk will do both of us good. I grew up with dogs and cats always underfoot. Unfortunately, my kids have pet dander allergies so no pets in the house for the long term. My wife and I handle our addiction by doing fostering weekends for one of the local shelters.

Dog Boarding in Chapel Hill

Chapel Hill, North Carolina is well-known as the home of the University of North Carolina. While not known for having a homeless animal problem, Chapel Hill is home to numerous animals that do need new homes. Fortunately, there are local animal shelters that can help these animals in their time of want.

Chatham Animal Rescue and Education (CARE) is a no-kill rescue that helps care for homeless animals and find them new homes. This non-profit organization uses foster families to help care for a larger number of animals at one time. The rescue is funded by donations, fundraisers, and adoption fees, and volunteers and foster families help make the work of CARE possible. CARE has been helping animals in Chapel Hill since 1975.

Hope Animal Rescue is a non-profit animal rescue that helps stray animals get off the streets and into new, loving homes. Hope Animal Rescue doesn’t believe in euthanizing healthy, adoptable animals, and works hard to give all animals a chance at finding a new home. With the help of generous donations and volunteers, Hope Animal Rescue is able to help hundreds of animals each year. Hope Animal Rescue also uses foster families to help care for stray animals until they can be placed into new, permanent homes.

If you live in the Chapel Hill area and are looking for a new pet, consider contacting one of these two rescues. You are sure to find a loving new family member at either Chatham Animal Rescue and Education or Hope Animal Rescue.
