“Dog Time is Happy Time”

Hello! I'm Angie and I‘m the ultimate dog lover. I’ve had dogs my entire life, and spent many hours dog-sitting for others. I currently have three dogs - 100 pound pit mix, 40 pound springer spaniel/lab mix and an 11 pound chihuahua/papillon mix - so I have experience with all different sizes and personalities. I’ve raised them all from puppy stage, so I also have a lot of experience with each doggy stage.

“Pup need a potty break? I got this! ❤🐕🐶”

Hi, it's Tracy, your friendly WAG walker here. I’ve been walking with WAG for almost 4 years now. It’s definitely the most fun/rewarding job ever. I love meeting all the new dogs and taking them on an adventure (that’s dog speak for walk...lol). I also volunteer walking dogs at Columbus Humane (over 14 years) and that's where I adopted my two Chihuahuas.  I know you cherish your fur babies and I will take care of them as if they were my own. I can’t wait to meet and get to know them!

“Dedicated dog lover!”

I'm a life-long dog lover, and I spent last summer caring for them at a doggie day care. I often spent 14 hours a day there, making sure dogs were fed, walked and happy! Big, small, they're all just puppies to me!

If I were asked what makes me the most happy in this world, I would answer with "dogs," without hesitation. There's just something about the smile on a dog's face that brings me utter joy. I have been working with dogs professionally since I was 16, and wish I had started sooner. I have dealt with animals under stressful situations: from hyperactivity, to refusal of cooperation/stubbornness, to literal life or death occurrences, so I know that I can handle any personality that gets thrown at me!

“Let’s go for a walk!”

Hey! I’m Stephanie and I can’t wait to meet your dog! I’m a full time wedding photographer with my boyfriend, but that leaves me with tons of time during the week to have fun with your nuggets! I volunteered at a shelter as a kid and have loved dogs for as long as I can remember. I have one rescue nugget of my own, but he’s very understanding with my love for all dogs and doesn’t get too jealous. I have experience watching and walking dogs of all shapes and sizes - including a pack of 5 Danes!

Dog Boarding in Delaware

The Humane Society of Delaware County emphasizes how having a dog can not only improve that dog's life, but it will also improve the owner's wellness as well. For one thing, you will become a better person for taking in an animal in need. Studies have shown that adopting a pet can improve your health, both physically and mentally! Having a fur-buddy can greatly increase happiness. There are a lot of health benefits from that alone. Plus, you will have a devoted dog companion that will love you unconditionally for his whole life. Win-win, right?  

If you are looking for a new family member, the Humane Society of Delaware County has lots and lots of pets to choose from; come on in and meet them - but be prepared to have your heart stolen! The Humane Society of Delaware County also holds multiple fundraisers and adopt-a-thons throughout the year. Please come and support them; any and all donations received from animal lovers like you or received through adoption fees go right back into the rescue.  

The Humane Society of Delaware County holds many low-cost spay/neuter clinics as well as wellness and vaccine events throughout the year. The staff is dedicated to informing the public about the importance of spaying and neutering your pet. If you would like to volunteer or become a foster parent to one or more of their furry family, please contact the staff at the Humane Society of Delaware County directly. They will appreciate the help, you will feel great giving back and the pets will WOOF you for all your hard work!
