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.

“Nobody love dogs more than I do”

Hi, I'm Lola. I've had dogs all my life and can't imagine a life without one. My first was a Cocker Spaniel named Duffy and he was part of my family before I was born. For my 7th birthday, I got Pinky. She was with me until I left for college at 21 (I'm a late bloomer) I've had many more since then. At one point I had 6! All rescues. All fabulous. They were my comfort and salvation when my husband passed away. I have two darling Shih Tzu's - Zoltan & Nala and my cats, Yoda & Bob

Dog Boarding in Louisville

Louisville, Tennessee is a short drive south of Knoxville, Tennessee. This small town doesn’t have its own animal shelter, but there are a few close-by shelters that are working to find homes for the pets without them in the area.

The Humane Society of Tennessee Valley has a history in the area dating back to 1885. As one of the oldest animal welfare organizations in the around, the Humane Society of Tennessee Valley has helped thousands of animals find forever homes. The shelter opened in 1957, and in 2001, became officially "no-kill". Since 2011, the shelter has placed around 22,000 cats and dogs in new homes. The organization hopes to end the euthanasia of all adoptable animals in East Tennessee by 2025 and hopes to continue to find new ways to help animals in the area.

The Young-Williams Animal Center, located in Knoxville, helps around 5,000 homeless pets find new homes each year. The shelter opened in 2001, and quickly the owners decided they needed more space to help the local animals in need. By 2004, the organization moved into a new, larger facility. In 2010, Young-Williams Animal Village opened as a secondary adoption facility for stray pets as well as the Young-Williams Spay/Neuter Solutions organization, which offers low-cost services to families in the area, including vaccinations. The organization even provides a shuttle service for those without proper transportation.

If you live in the Louisville, Tennessee, area and are looking for a new pet to bring into your home and life, we recommend visiting one of these two animal shelters!

Each April, Knoxville Mercury puts together a list of restaurants that will donate proceeds from meals to the Humane Society of Tennessee Valley for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Many of these restaurants will also allow you to bring your dog to the restaurant to celebrate the occasion.

Eating at one of the participating restaurants will earn the Humane Society of Tennessee Valley 15% of the cost of your meal. This is one of the organization's springtime fundraisers to help raise money to care for homeless animals in the area.

Stop by SoKnow Taco Cantina, Zoe's Kitchen, Aubrey’s, Bistro at the Bijou, and many more restaurants to support a great cause.
