Hello. My name is Cathy and I am, by nature, an individual who is passionate about caring for people and animals who need good, quality care. My adoration for animals, especially dogs, began when I was "knee high to a grasshopper," and it has never wavered over the years. In my family, my canine babies outnumber my human ones by a score of five to two. We have two chihuahuas, a hairless Chinese crested, a miniature dachshund, and the goofiest golden doodle in the world. We, also, have two cats and a leopard gecko named Mikey! In our home, our animals are treated like family members, not pets. If you are looking for a reliable and trustworthy person to treat your pooches like an extended member of the family, then I am the dog walker for you. If you have special requests/instructions, then you can rest assured that your wishes will be carried out each and every time without fail. I will treat your dogs the same as I do my own, and they are pretty pampered, if I must say so myself.While I realize how difficult it can be to trust someone else to care for your animals, I have years of experience caring for both animals and people in various situations/environments, so you can rest assured that they are in the best hands...other than your own.

I love dogs. I've had dogs all my life...normally more than one at a time. It is so much fun to walk and play with them and experience their wonderful individual personalities. Whenever my wife and I are at the mall we always stop to play with the puppies at the pet store. Plus, when we see someone in our neighborhood walking a dog we always stop to say hello which is why we always have dog treats in our car.

Hi I’m Linda! Since as long as I can remember, I’ve always been a dog lover. If I’m missing at a party or gathering, it’s usually because I found a dog and I’m hanging out with them. My babies are 9 & 11 and are my world. I have been pet sitting and helping to walk dogs since I was strong enough to hold a leash. I can’t wait to meet your dog!

Dog Boarding in Harrisburg

The Humane Society of Harrisburg Area (HSHA) centers all of their efforts on building a better community for pets and people through compassion, protection, collaboration, and education. The nonprofit organization has been caring for the homeless animals of  Dauphin, Perry, Cumberland, and Northern York counties since 1911. 

HSHA is committed to doing everything possible for pet owners to ensure they can keep their pets safe in their homes. Pet owner resources include behavioral assistance, low-cost clinics, crisis assistance, lost and found pet reporting, and a pet food bank for families in need. Additionally, they operate a Cruelty Department to respond to concerns and complaints of animal abuse or neglect. 

Above all else, the humane society strives for a community of happy, healthy animals and people. In the event that pets can't stay in their homes, HSHA is a safe haven for homeless animals, taking in thousands each year. The shelter welcomes animals with open arms regardless of breed, age, behavior condition, or health status and they will never euthanize animals due to a length of stay or a lack of space. Every animal that has a chapter at the shelter receives complete and loving care, veterinary attention, vaccinations, a spay/neuter surgery, socialization, and exercise until they can be placed in a permanent, loving home through their adoption program. 

The support of compassionate community volunteers keeps the society's mission alive. Volunteers assist with essential shelter functions including dog walking, animal socialization and enrichment, and support at events. HSHA receives no government or outside funding for their work. Instead, they rely on the generosity of private donors as well as their extensive fundraising efforts to support their mission to build a better community for people and pets.
