“Your dog ‘s best friend!”

I love animals and enjoyed walking our dog with my daughter when she was growing up. I currently have a rescue dog who is 8 years old. Bonding with her has been a wonderful experience. I can assure you that I will enjoy spending time with your fur baby and provide quality time. I have been caring for dogs with Wag! for over a year now and it has been a wonderful experience! I love everything about my experience with Wag! I have the opportunity to meet so many dogs with amazing personalities!

I grew up with dogs and we always considered them as part of the family. At a young age, I would bring stray dogs home. I have always enjoyed taking care of dogs whether they were my own or others.

“A walk a day keeps the vet away!”

I am an absolute animal lover. I have had a Dachshund, Golden Retriever, and currently an Australian Cattle Dog. I walk my mom’s 100lb rottweiler/pit bull mix and my sister’s 4 lb chihuahua all the time. So rest assured I am capable of all breeds/shapes/sizes/temperaments. I hope to meet your fur baby soon. I also have two kitties :)

“I love all dogs no matter size, drool, or energy!!”

Hi! I have been surrounded by dogs my whole life! I used to walk and take care of my parents dog, Otis, many times before he passed. Now I walk and watch my sister’s 8 month old golden retriever, and my other sisters pit bull mix and lab mix! They all range in energy and size but are no match for my dog walking skills! I love meeting new dogs and helping them burn energy as it helps me burn energy too!

Hi, my name is Judy. I have always had a dog in my life. My dogs and I have attended many obedience classes where I learned a lot! I love animals and am a docent volunteer at the Buffalo Zoo.

Dog Boarding in Buffalo

Located next to the Canadian border in upstate New York, Buffalo is full of dog-friendly attractions, experiences, and events! It’s also teeming with animal lovers and a variety of hardworking animal welfare organizations and rescue groups.

The SPCA Serving Erie County is a perfect example. Having opened its doors way back in 1867, this local humane society has been helping animals in the region for 150 years, and today cares for almost 12,000 animals each year. From its state-of-the-art shelter in West Seneca, to its several off-site adoption locations, it helps unwanted and unloved pets find loving, responsible owners.

Buffalo Pug and Small Breed Rescue is another of the region’s leading animal rescue groups. Founded in 2003, this all-volunteer non-profit is dedicated to saving the lives of pint-sized pooches in and around Buffalo. It is always on the lookout for donations, volunteers, and foster carers, and always has a collection of cute canines up for adoption.

Pets Alive WNY also works day in, day out to improve the lives of pets in the Buffalo area. With a motto that “Every Life Counts, Every Life Matters”, this inspirational group has been saving at-risk animals since 2006. It runs a facility that houses dogs, cats, rabbits, and farm animals, while its small adoption center only houses cats with dogs living in foster homes.

Proudly modelled on the original Pets Alive in Middletown, NY, Pets Alive WNY is well worth a look if you’re searching for a rescue group to support, or maybe for a new furry friend to welcome into your family.
