Hi! I’m Searra and I absolutely love spending time with dogs and I have dog sat for many family members and friends over the past few years. These sittings would usually be a week to two weeks long. I preferred staying with the dogs because dogs seem to get lonely quicker than cats or any other pet. I would take the dogs out for walks and then play with them after! I’m in college right now for psychology and I’m currently enrolled in a course known as AAI which is animal assisted interventions. This gives me understanding on dogs stress signs and aggression signs, even the calming signs they portray. Along with that I volunteered at the Washington humane society for about 2 year. There I would take the dogs out to play and get some sun!

I have been working with animals for around 4/5 years now. Ever since I turned 18 and people started to trust me with watching/ walking their animals. I've been working with Dogs for a while now and I'm very comfortable around them. No matter the breed or size, I love animals. I always put the animals first and make sure they have everything they need. Letting me walk your dog would be a win for you and your animal!

Dog Boarding in Youngstown

Legacy Dog Rescue of Ohio is a 501(3)(C) rescue that is dedicated to helping dogs in the Mahoning and Trumball county and surrounding areas.  They do what they do, motivated by love for all dogs that have been in their lives. All animal lovers first became animals lovers due to "the one" - that one furry little soul - that stole their heart long ago. It is, perhaps, in their memory, that we, as animal lovers, stay hooked and dedicated to ensuring that ALL furry little souls are loved.  


Legacy Dog Rescue has two main purposes; rescue and community service. The rescue takes dogs from bad, hopeless situations and places them in loving foster homes where they learn being a dog ain't always so bad!  The rescue's spay/neuter program helps reduce the number of potential dogs that could be sent to a high-kill shelter, abused or worse; it preempts that possibility.  The rescue also has a food assistance program to help pet parents feed their pets when money is an issue.  


Legacy Dog Rescue has many furry friends you can call your own, so please visit their website. The rescue is always looking for volunteers and foster families to further their valiant efforts to place all animals in a loving, furever home.  They gladly accept donations of money, food, cleaning supplies, bowls, leashes, collars, bedding and gas cards (to transport the dogs). What a wonderful world it will be when all the fur babies are in a loving home.  Help make Legacy Dog Rescue of Ohio's dream come true.  Love your pooch and advocated for those still in need.

Beginning in 1910, this property served as the Mahoning County Experimental Farm, which was managed by The Ohio State University until 1990.  Since then, Mill Creek MetroPark has taken over and expanded all of the educational programs and recreational facilities into a 402-acre working farm.  Spend the day here learning about agriculture, animals and the history of the farm itself. The staff asks that you do not feed the animals as they are on a regimented daily feeding schedule, that you do not put your hand near the animals mouths and that you monitor your children at all time and do not let them climb or play on the gates or animal enclosures.  Be sure to wash your hands after visiting with the animals and if the barn doors are closed, please leave them closed.
