I am a dog lover and I have been around dogs my whole life. I have owned them, and I have had the pleasure of caring for the fur-children of family members, friends, and neighbors. Dogs truly have a way of spreading a certain kind of joy that I just can't get enough of! I also love being outside, I have a pet care certification through New Skills Academy, and I think it is so rewarding to make a dog feel safe, loved, and happy, and to make sure they get their exercise while doing it!

“Because Your Dog Deserves the Best! :-)”

I'm originally from the Mt. Penn area and have resided in the outskirts of Reading my entire life. I work full time from home and have some flexibility in my schedule. I have always LOVED animals, particularly dogs!Although I've owned dogs in the past, I don't currently own one because I travel often for my job. I have recently started exercising more often and walking with a companion is much more fun than walking alone. I'm extremely responsible! You're dog will be in great hands! :-)

Dog Boarding in Reading

Founded by a revolutionary woman ahead of her time, the Animal Rescue League of Berks County has been going strong since 1952. Berks ARL has been a cornerstone for the animal advocacy efforts in the region in addition to its role as a rescue and rehabilitation facility. This shelter serves the county in numerous capacities ranging from the investigation of mistreatment to education programs in schools. Since its inception, Berks ARL has built programs that provide subsidized adoptions for members of the military and senior dogs for senior citizens!  

Acting as the largest shelter in the Reading area, Humane Pennsylvania sees thousands walk through its doors each year. Even still, they maintain a live release rate that is astonishing. Working with several local rescues and service providers, Humane PA is striving to repair a disjointed welfare network in the region by engaging with the community. This shelter offers programs like Ani-meals and Safe Haven, both of which are primary programs in their overall Healthy Pets, Healthy Lives initiative. The Healthy Pets, Healthy Lives initiative was started by Humane Pennsylvania in conjunction with their rescue efforts to secure donated veterinary services to homeless pets, and its mission has permeated all facets of the shelter: “a healthy pet is a happy pet!”

A small, organic nonprofit group, Zoe’s House Rescue, is run entirely by volunteers and their subsequent foster network. Zoe’s House rescues dogs that fall through the cracks of shelter systems by providing a home, veterinary services, and rehabilitation. Named for the founder’s beloved Doberman, Zoe, after she passed on, this rescue focuses on serving vulnerable breeds that often fall victim to breed discrimination to honor Zoe’s memory. This shelter also provides financial assistance to members of the community needing help to neuter, spay, or provide heartworm treatment.
