Hi. My name is Theresa and I have had dogs most of my life. I LOVE dogs and most all other animals. I love being around them which is why I want to walk them and care for them. Family friends have trusted me with their beloved dogs. Most recently a neighbor of mine asked me to walk and care for her Border Collie after only knowing me a few weeks. Her dog loved and trusted me and I loved her. Please know that I LOVE all my furry clients even if I'm not always available to walk them.

“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 Wake Forest

Animal lovers throughout North Carolina are making big differences in the lives of pets in need. Community members work together and problem solve in order to improve the well-being of all animals who are in need of special care and attention. When pets enter the shelters in and around Wake Forest, they are in good hands. Pets are cared for and given any medical attention they need. They are given their vaccinations, they get socialization, and they get oodles of love from all who they come in contact with. 

Saving Grace is a non-profit organization dedicated to ensuring that all pets have a loving place to call home. This organization is full of committed volunteers who work around the clock to make sure that animals are well-cared for at all hours of the day. Whether they are newborn puppies or elderly dogs, each sweet pooch gets the same level of high-quality compassion and care at Saving Grace. 

Another organization making a big impact on the community is Paws For Life in Youngsville. In 2017, this non-profit found loving fur-ever homes for over 250 dogs. The volunteers ensure safe and healthy homes for each of their animals. Foster homes are provided to each pet so that he or she receives the precise individual attention and they need.
