I have owned and cared for animals since I was around 8 years old and love taking them on adventures with me whenever I can; even if it's just to go out to eat. I am always available to watch friends and families pets because I'm a college student who’s always home studying and I honestly just like being around animals. I love being outdoors and walking around my community with my own pets and cannot wait to walk around new communities with new pet friends.

“Extra belly scratches are free”

Hi my name is Daphne! I love animals but dogs are my absolute favorite. I grew up with dogs and they are an important part of my life. I have a rescued furry girl named Lola. She is a border collie mix super friendly and sweet. We also have a rescued turtle named Roberto. I'm a military wife, so I do have base access. I love meeting new dogs and interacting with them. They have so much love to give and I love to be part of that exchange. I can't wait to meet and walk your furry pal!

I have had a lot of experience taking care of dogs and making sure all their needs are full filled. I have previously worked at a doggie day care and I learned what it takes to keep a dog happy. Making sure the dog is happy and healthy is my number one priority.

Dog Boarding in Jacksonville

The Carolina Animal Protection Society of Onslow County is on a mission - to save any abused, neglected, unwanted, ageing, sick, hungry or homeless pets from the street or an unsafe environment and nurse them back to health, socialize them, love them and care for them like they were their own.  

Once the pets that enter the Society are healthy, the staff will take all the time that is necessary to find every pet their perfect forever family. Have you been thinking about adopting a little furry friend? Do you have questions or concerns? The staff at Caroline Animal Protection Society of Onslow County will be more than happy to answer those questions, calm your fears and educate you on the responsibilities and joys of becoming a pet parent.  

You can view the adoptable pets on their website or at adoption events held throughout the year. The staff here wants to stress that a pet is not a present; it is a lifetime commitment! It is a living, breathing, feeling soul that relies on his person for food, love and security. If you are willing to give a second chance to an animal that truly has earned it, please come by today and meet the furry love of your life!

CAPS also has many community outreach programs like low-cost shot clinics and spay/neuter clinics. If your dog or cat isn't spayed or neutered and you have questions about the procedure itself, contact CAPS. They are advocates for spaying and neutering all pets to not only keep the animal population down but to drastically cut that pets risk of developing uterine or testicular cancers and other life-threatening diseases later in life.  

If you are not in the market to adopt right now, there are other ways an animal lover, like yourself, can help. Do you have any spare time that you can donate to work at the facility? The staff are always searching for dedicated and caring volunteers to walk the dogs, do some cleaning, work in the office, help with fundraisers, transport the animals and so much more. Are you a member of an organization that needs a charitable cause? CAPS hopes you will consider making a one time, weekly or monthly commitment to them to help out. Doing good feels good! Come on down and feel for yourself!

If you do not have any time to spare right now, you could also consider either making a monetary donation to assist with the operation of CAPS and its many community outreach programs or donating items on CAPS' wish list - like quality food, bedding, medications, cleaning supplies, boxes of copy paper, gift cards for supplies or gas, treats or toys. Did you know your donation is tax-deductible? Did you lose a furry friend recently? CAPS would consider it an honor to accept a donation in their memory. At CAPS, they know our pets are our family. 

If you are interested in adopting, volunteering, fostering or donating, please contact CAPS as soon as possible!

Your leashed pup (no retractable leashes please) can join in on the festivities as long as they promise not to "christen" your newly planted tree.
