Hello ~ I'm Dawn. I feel privileged to make myself available to you, and your pet. What a great service and convenience to provide busy owners with the peace of mind that their pet's needs are being met! I have felt the nagging guilt of not being able to "make that happen," due to work conflicts, fatigue, etc. I'm a responsible, mature and physically strong individual with both background with multiple "walks" of animals, and the common sense understanding which that breeds, AND an innate, irrepressible love for, and response to these creatures who are in our care. I spent hours as a kid reading "dog dictionaries," interested in each breed. Personally, I've lived with Labs, Goldens, Blue Heelers, Pit Bulls, Spaniels, Pekingese, Pugs, Shi-Poos, Huskies, Border Collies, Australian Shepherds, an Akita...and more. As with little children, I have a natural love for animals and get down on their level and engage demonstratively (dog-permitting and respectful of the pet's temperament and comfort zone.

Hi everyone! Thanks for considering me to walk your dog! I'm a dog lover, and my border collie mix is one of the best parts of my life! I volunteer and foster dogs when I'm not working on graduate school. I've learned dog behavior from multiple trainers, and as a foster parent I have experience with dogs who are anxious or have health issues. As a dog owner myself, I know it can be stressful leaving your dog! I'll treat yours like my own!

Dog Boarding in Knoxville

Rated the most dog-friendly city in the Southeast, Knoxville canines have access to a surplus of activities, resources, and care. The Humane Society of the Tennessee Valley is one of two major animal rescues serving the dogs of Knoxville, TN. Their work dates back to the formation of the society in 1885, though they opened the state's first animal shelter in 1957. Committed to working together to find a loving home for every animal in need, the organization is a no-kill rescue that even transfers in at-risk animals from other shelters in the region. All of their efforts support one ultimate mission: to end the euthanasia of adoptable animals in East Tennessee. 

The humane society is dedicated to serving the animals and people of their local community, as it is a group effort to achieve this goal. Services available to the community include animal adoptions, a low-cost spay/neuter/vaccination clinic, dog training, and education programs. Moreover, the society relies on the efforts of devoted community members for assistance through their volunteer opportunities, foster program, and generous donations. It is their hope to end pet overpopulation through promoting and offering low-cost spay/neutering, and to eliminate pet abandonment by offering training programs to address behavioral problems. The continued hard work of the Humane Society of the Tennessee Valley has placed nearly 22,000 dogs and cats into new caring homes! 

The Young-Williams Animal Center is also working relentlessly to find a home for every pet. They focus their efforts on adoptions, a lost and found animal program, and spays and neuters. The efforts of the nonprofit began when it was established in January 2001. Since then, its dedication, along with that of its many compassionate volunteers, has enabled the center to care for more than 11,000 animals each year. Devoted to promoting animal welfare and the sheltering and placement of animals, the open admission organization provides an aggressive spay/neuter program, a volunteer foster program, pet resources, and community outreach and education. Their mission is to lead the community in ending pet homelessness, enhancing the human-animal bond, and promoting all-around animal welfare.
