“Always happy to see your pup!”

Hello! I'm Chris, a recent Temple graduate and pro dog-walker. My friends and relatives always call on me to sit their furry companions because I'm friendly, reliable and great with their dogs! I know that each dog and their owners have their own specialized needs, and I'm here to be attentive to those needs. In addition, with my degree in psychology, I can help your animal to maintain healthy behaviors to increase their wellness and happiness. Thanks for your patronage!

Hi, I'm Becky! I have lived in Philadelphia for over 15 years. One of my favorite things to do is to explore this awesome city with a dog by my side. I've had dogs and cats my whole life, and don't think I could have it any other way. My current best friend/roommate is George, a 5 year old pit bull/lab mix. I understand that all dogs need discipline and respect, with lots of love and exercise. I'll make sure to always keep all dogs super safe and happy.

I have been walking dogs for 3 years and have been a dog lover my entire life. I grew up with a Standard Poodle named Collette. As an adult, I lived in a house with a lovely brown anxious Aussie. I helped to care for the dog- feeding her, walking her, giving medications, and keeping an eye on her to make sure she stayed out of mischief. We also regularly took in foster dogs of all shapes and sizes. I love getting outside and moving around, so I look forward to meeting and caring for your dog!

“I'm there for your dog as if he/she were my own!”

I've loved dogs my entire life. I strive to be a good dog person, meaning I try to assist friends in training and gladly help out when needed. I have not met a dog I didn't like and vice versa. I have always had dogs of my own and made sure they were trained and socialized.

Dog Boarding in Darby

Located just five miles southwest of downtown Philly, Darby is well placed to allow easy access to the best dog-friendly parks and experiences Pennsylvania’s largest city has to offer! This location also means that when dogs in Darby are abandoned, abused, or neglected, there are plenty of animal rescue groups and welfare advocates ready to help out.

Take Morris Animal Refuge for example. Founded way back in 1874, this open-admission shelter is committed to helping the homeless, abandoned and unwanted pets of the Philadelphia region. Run by a small team of dedicated staff members, this non-profit provides essential care and adoption services for dogs, cats, and a variety of other small animals.

However, in order to be able to continue providing a second chance to those animals, Morris Animal Refuge relies on the generous support of the community. It also survives thanks to the hard work and dedication of volunteers and foster carers, so feel free to lend a helping paw if you can.

Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) is another non-profit with a commitment to save Philadelphia’s homeless and at-risk animals. It pulls at-risk animals out of the city’s shelter and gives them the care they need for a shot at a brighter future. With three no-kill shelters, a large foster care network, and a number of special adoption events, PAWS helps thousands of animals each year find loving, permanent homes.

Donations, volunteers, and additional foster carers are always needed, so it’s worth checking PAWS out online or in person to find out more about the grrr-eat work of this excellent organization.
