Hello! My name is Michele, and I am a high school biology teacher. I love animals! I previously had a dog of my own, but cannot own another one right now. That's why I would love to take your pup for walks around the neighborhood or at a nearby park. I loved taking my former dog for walks on local hiking trails and to the dog park for playtime. Can't wait for an enjoyable walk with your dog!

“Your friendly neighborhood dog walker”

I started pet sitting when I was in high school. Several of my friends had dogs that I would care for while they were away. To make extra money in college I began to walk and then board a local Shiba Inu; a gig I kept until I started working full time. I have always loved animals, but was unable to have any as a child because of allergies some of my family members have. Now my wife and I currently have two dogs (a beagle and a havanese/poodle mix), three cats, two rabbits, and a conure.

I go the extra mile for the dogs in my care. I have over 12 years experience fostering dogs with special medical needs so giving medications or IV fluids is not an issue. I only feed holistic food and treats and purchase toys made in the USA. I will treat your pets like they were my own. I love to exercise and run so if your dog is active, I am the sitter for you. My own pets are very friendly to other dogs I can separate your dogs from my own. My cats and caged pets are kept away from the dogs so interaction is not an issue if your dog does not like them. I have had dogs and cats for over 40 years and have excellent references from adopters and current clients.

“A dog having fun means I did my job well”

Dog mom and lover enjoys giving a dog a good walk and some play time. I know how bored pups get waiting for their owners to come home so I will always make sure they have a great time when I'm with them. I always check their water bowls before I leave and alert the pet parent if anything out of the ordinary happened. My specialty is giving your pet the love and attention it wants when you are away.

Dog Boarding in Princeton

Princeton may be best known as a college town, but there’s plenty for dog lovers to see, do, and experience in the Princeton and surrounding areas. There are also several animal rescue groups that call Princeton home and are always ready to help pets in need!

SAVE, A Friend to Homeless Animals, is one such organization. SAVE started rescuing and sheltering abandoned, abused, and homeless dogs and cats in and around Princeton in 1941. Each year, it provides hundreds of animals with essential medical care, food, training, love and TLC.

An independent, non-profit shelter, SAVE has a mission to protect the health and welfare of homeless companion animals in the greater Princeton area. It does this by focusing on six key areas — rescue, shelter, health and welfare, spay/neuter, adoption, and humane education — and its shelter houses approximately 75 dogs and cats at any given time!

Pet Rescue of Mercer is another paw-some local group committed to protecting the welfare and wellbeing of companion animals. Based in Mercer County, this non-profit group is run entirely by volunteers. It rescues neglected, abused, and abandoned animals from local shelters, saving them from euthanasia and then giving them essential care and shelter.

As Pet Rescue of Mercer does not have its own shelter facility, rescued animals are placed in loving foster homes until responsible, permanent homes can be found. Like so many other excellent rescue groups across the country, Pet Rescue of Mercer is always on the lookout for more donations, volunteers, and foster carers. Keep it in mind if you want to lend a paw to animals in need!
