I, Lyn Smith, am a previous pet owner of 26 years and love working with pets and students. I am a high school physical education teacher and look for additional work as I love to be outside and walk.

“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.

Over the years, friends and family have entrusted their precious pets in my care because they trusted my abilities and knew that I would treat their pets as I would my own. Spending my days with cats and dogs is the ultimate job. Kinda hard to even call it a “job.” Who can resist wags, wet kisses and lap naps? Certainly not me.

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.
