Hello! Im Bethany, I've always loved all animals growing up. I've probably have had every pet you could imagine. But nothing better than a dog! I currently work at a doggy daycare, board, and training facility in central Austin. I absolutely love it. I get to hang out, play, clean up, and take care of dogs all day long. I mean, what's better than that!? I am educated in the way of a dog, and a very kind person. Your pups are safe with me!

“Attentive Loving Individualized Dog Care”
Hi, I’m Abbey. I love animals and have been caring for pets as long as I can remember. I worked at a busy three veterinarian vet clinic while studying pre-Vet in college (before I decided to go down another career path) and have volunteered 260+ hours at an animal shelter. When your dog is with me, you can feel comfortable knowing that I am providing the best possible attentive and loving care. Dogs are family.

The Darke County Humane Society is a charitable animal welfare organization dedicated to advocating for animal welfare and caring for the sick, injured, and neglected animals. As a private nonprofit, they receive no government or other external funding and exist through the generous support of community donors.
The organization was founded in 1953 to enforce laws for the prevention of cruelty and to instil humane treatment, especially to children and animals. Today, their efforts are focused on strengthening the local community by investigating animal neglect and abuse, rehabilitating animals in need, and placing pets into loving, responsible homes. The shelter operates an adoption center, lost and found pet reporting, vaccination clinics, spay/neuter clinics, and a field response program.
They work with pet owners in every case to convey an understanding of best practices for humane animal treatment and how to make improvements in their home. In order to focus their limited resources on the neediest animals, the humane society only accepts sick or injured strays or animals rescued from abuse and neglect. Unwanted or owner-surrendered pets are referred to another great local animal organization, the Darke County Animal Shelter.
The Darke County Animal Shelter, a county-operated organization, strives to ensure the welfare and safety of animals and people through community outreach and professional law enforcement. Their efforts to provide humane dog control and care while enriching the local community are inclusive of reuniting lost pets with their owners, animal licensing, providing comfortable shelter and care, educating the public on topics related to companion animals, picking up surrendered animals, enforcing animal code, and humanely impounding stray animals to give them a new beginning in a happy, healthy home!
The compassionate efforts of the Darke County Animal Shelter are supported by volunteers and Darke County Friends of the Shelter, a nonprofit organization established to help with the needs of the shelter and give every 4-legged citizen another chance!
