Hello! My name is Amanda Baalke! I'm 33 years old and live in the Southwest school district in the Greensboro/High Point area. I have always had a connection with animals, especially dogs. Starting as a child, I volunteered at my local humane society. I would go in the morning and spend the whole day walking as many dogs as I could. I was always overwhelmed by the love and joy I could see on the dog's faces. That has always been, and still is, my "happy place." I currently have a 2 year old male Siberian Husky. My goal is to become a foster home for special-needs dogs. I love, respect, and appreciate dogs of all sized and breeds. Every pup deserves love and compassion. I have taken classes from a certified dog trainer to learn the mannerisms and body-language of dogs. I also learned how to quickly and appropriately respond to any situation that we may encounter during our walks. I am looking forward to meeting your sweet pup soon!

I might have been a dog in my past life:) I grew up with dogs/absolutely love them to death and they love me. Today I work from home and watch my roommates dog China on a regular basis. We go on walks, hikes in the mountains and try new dog parks all the time. She likes to chase squirrels/her tennis ball and meet new doggie friends. I would eventually like to start my own dog walking/sitting business so I thought this would be a great start!

Dog Boarding in Winston-Salem

Known as the Twin City, Winston-Salem is North Carolina’s fifth-largest city and is home to a large population of dog lovers. Its Latin motto translates to “A city founded on co-operation”, and that spirit of co-operation is always evident in the way Winston-Salem’s many animal rescue groups bring this community of dog lovers together to help pets in need.

Stepping Stones Canine Rescue is one of those groups. This non-profit, canine-only rescue organization is committed to saving the lives of unwanted and abused dogs in the Triad region. A volunteer-run group, Stepping Stones Canine Rescue is on a mission to rescue, protect, provide sanctuary, and ultimately find adoptive families for abandoned, stray, and neglected dogs.

Animal Adoption & Rescue Foundation (AARF) also pulls out all the stops to help pets who have fallen on hard times. A non-profit that helps dogs and cats in the greater Winston-Salem area, AARF provides rescue and adoption services, pet care information, and education while encouraging the human/animal bond in the wider community.

Finally, no list of inspirational animal welfare groups in Winston-Salem would be complete without mentioning the Forsyth Humane Society. For more than 70 years, this non-profit group has promoted the compassionate treatment of dogs and cats. It supports a no-kill adoption center, helps unwanted dogs and cats find loving homes, and provides a wide range of resources to the local pet community. It’s always on the lookout for volunteers, foster carers, and donations, all of which are essential for the Forsyth Humane Society to keep saving the lives of our four-legged friends.
