“They call me the pet whisperer”

I am a life long animal lover. I have had 7 dogs over the years, so I am familiar with a large range of breeds and personalities. I have a lot of patience and understand how to communicate with dogs. I am young and agile so I can keep up with high energy dogs that want to play non stop. I am a very observant person, which helps me learn animals wants, needs and triggers quickly. I would love to become your furry friend's walking buddy!

I've worked all kinds of jobs, many on farms, all around the country (with Rosie by my side)... adding horses, llamas, rehabbed squirrels, & sheep to animals that have been in my care. I now walk dogs full time in addition to owning my own farm-sitting business.

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.
