Hi There, I have been an avid dog lover since a very young age. I first started walking dogs for a family friend who was also a neighbor of my parents. Since then, I have been dog sitting for friends and family while they take business trips, personal trips or no nights outs. I have a great personality to match my work ethic. Most importantly your furry family members will be safe as I am responsible, attentive to my surroundings and caring to all.

Dog Boarding in Houston

Houston may be the biggest city in the biggest state in the US, but it’s still got plenty of heart. When any of Houston’s pets fall on hard times, there’s no shortage of animal lovers ready to step up to the plate and help out!

Take Friends For Life, for example. A no-kill shelter, Friends For Life is also the fastest-growing shelter in the region. An amazing 75 percent of the animals it adopts out to forever homes are deemed ‘unadoptable’ at other shelters, and it offers a lifetime guarantee on all adoptions. Friends For Life’s Don Sanders Adoption Center is located on East 22nd Street and is open every day except Monday.

Houston Pets Alive! is another no-kill rescue working to save the city’s at-risk pets. With a mission to eliminate the killing of companion animals, this non-profit specializes in saving animals most at risk of euthanasia. These animals are spayed and neutered, microchipped and vaccinated, before being matched with owners that can give them the love, care, and the attention they deserve.

A similar level of commitment can be found at ADORE Houston, an organization with a goal to get stray and abandoned dogs off the streets and out of shelters. ADORE stands for All Dogs Official Rescue Enterprise, and the group provides rescue services, veterinary treatment, foster homes, and a strong adoption program. And like so many other worthy animal rescue groups across America, it’s always seeking more donations and volunteers.
