Sittings take place at your home and boardings take place at your pet caregiver's home.
All pet caregivers offer pick-up and drop-off for boarding services.
Your pet caregiver will send photos and videos throughout the service in addition to a thorough report card.

“More than a walk - Extra Photos & Play/spoil time”
My volunteer time in vet clinics, providing many years off care to my, family & friends’ fur babies, has me well equipped to provide the level of care your bark & purr family members deserve. During my years with Wag, I’ve strived to make sure dogs get attention &/or play time before & after their walks. When doing boardings, sittings & walks, there will be plenty of photo updates, detailed reports of care and grooming/training (as needed/requested). Your baby’ll surely get lots of love from me!

I grew up with a dog and a bunch of barn cats, was always the designated dog walker at family gatherings and served in the Peace Corps where I frequently removed ticks from dogs and cats who only had limited interactions with people.
Serving Concord and surrounding towns, the Humane Society of Concord and Greater Cabarrus County seeks to alleviate animal homelessness in the area. While the HSCCGCC shelter focuses primarily on public advocacy and rescue, they also have initiatives that reunite lost animals with their owners and offer free pet food to low-income households through a food pantry. This shelter also hosts several fundraising events throughout the year, like the Whisker Whirl Masquerade Ball.
Operating as the official shelter of the municipality, Cabarrus County Animal Shelter performs several different roles for the Concord community. Cabarrus County Animal Care and Control Department facilitates investigating instances of abuse while taking in animals that are stray, abandoned, or surrendered. This open admission shelter sees hundreds come through its doors each year in addition to the lost animals it receives to be quarantined temporarily. This shelter partners with both local shelters and national programs like Spay It Forward! in order to promote a community without unnecessary euthanasia.
Cabarrus Pet Society is a small, organic nonprofit run by a dedicated group of volunteers and a foster network. This shelter is always seeking out new fosters in order to provide vulnerable breeds and cases with extra love and care. They also provide the public with loads of informational content on training, adoption procedures, and identifying behavioral problems. When they are not finding pets their forever home, CPS is planning their wildly popular fundraiser, Pars for Paws, an annual golf tournament event!
Presented by the Kreitzer’s Critter Corral Puppy Rescue, The Puppy Rescue 5K is an annual race for charity that supports rescue and rehoming of local homeless animals.

Each Autumn, Friends for Life Cat Adoptions puts on the Dogs’ Day Out pet festival as Les Myers Community Park.

There will be a zone for dog-related fun and games while humans can browse a number of food and drink sellers. While Dogs’ Day Out is a massive adoption event, it is also an excellent opportunity to take your dog out for the day!
Famous in the world of American Pickers, The Depot at Gibson Mill is a huge destination for antique connaisseurs and novice treasure hunters alike!

Little known to the general public, a lawn game known as Kubb is played widely in Concord! Kubb is a peculiar game played between two teams using several wood pieces.

Skuffle for the Shovel is a day-long competition event that brings Kubb players from far and wide. Dogs obviously cannot participate in game-play, but are welcome to come along and spectate this tournament! Registering for the competition is $20.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! What better way to stir holiday cheer and celebrate Christmas with your neighbors than with the annual Christmas parade?
