All pet caregivers offer pick-up and drop-off for boarding services.

Hi there! I’m Sam and I've had a passion for animals for as long as I can remember! I have 2 Australian cattle dogs myself and I have experience with just about every breed out there. I worked at a dog daycare/boarding facility for 3 years & I have experience administering food and meds. Currently I am finishing up my teaching certification and do Wag! on the side. Thank you for your time and I look forward to meeting/walking your furry best friend(s)!

I have boarding, dog walking, and veterinary care experience, totalling 4 years. I have a 1 year old terrier mix named Lil' Sebastian. He gets along great with my 3 cats. I have a high standard of work ethic. I make sure to keep the dogs safe, wipe their paws and any other mess, and follow instructions closely. I know how to read dog behavior to anticipate any indications for concern. I am very good at getting shy dogs to trust me. I always make sure to give a lot of praise to the dogs. I love walking! But I also know some dogs like to take their time and sniff everything. It matters that both dogs and owners feel good about who they let into the pack.

Hello I’m Ashlynn! I’m very patient as well as a good listener for special instructions to take care of your pups. I love meeting and especially getting to spend time with them. I think it’s so unique to learn each dog’s personality to what are their likes and dislikes. I also believe to give each great care to be sure of their safety and to go back home happy to their families. Ashlynn - Odessa TX

Howdy! My name is Emily and I am a senior kinesiology major here at Texas A&M University! Kinesiology is all about movement and staying healthy and I fully believe that is important for dogs as well! I have experience pet sitting and have owned both a Maltese and a Border Collie Mix therefore I have had experience with both large and small dogs! Dogs have a huge place in my heart and I can’t wait to make more space in my heart for your dog!

I’ve grown up with dogs my entire life, ranging from labs to miniature poodles. My first job at 16 was at a veterinary hospital as a kennel worker. I currently have a 13 year old shih tzu and I am a dog photographer.

Hi, my name is Sierra, raised and currently still reside in the suburbs of Dallas, Texas. I've been a dog lover since I was a baby, growing up with two huskies. I've had every size from small to large and it's amazing to me how unique each one of their personalities are. I've also had dogs with medical conditions, such as epilepsy, so I know how important it is that some pups need some extra care. I hope to meet your pup and excited to make a new furry friend!
Hello! I am a big lover of dogs, and have always lived with at least two. From big + furry to tiny + full of character, I’ve got your dog covered. Throughout my life, I’ve owned a German Shepard, Great Pyrenees, Llahsa Apso, a poodle mix, and many many wonderful mutts. I’ve also volunteered at animal shelters in the past. I believe it’s the dogs that find us (not always the other way around). I will treat your loved one with the utmost respect and care during our walks together. I look forward to meeting them!

Hello, my name is Lilly! I have owned dogs since childhood and have always held a special place in my heart for them, no matter the breed. Currently a dog mom of 3 precious pups but have plenty of love to go around to each and every dog I'm lucky enough to meet! I love getting to know each dog for their unique personalities and how to best handle each one so that we have the best experience possible.
Midland, Texas, is situated about two hours south of Lubbock out in western Texas. West Texas is known for its small towns and large amounts of land. When homeless animals start roaming the area, they need to be taken into a place that can provide shelter and care, and that’s where local shelters and animal welfare organizations step in.
Lone Star Sanctuary for Animals’ mission is to change the lives of the homeless animals in the area, and part of doing that is saving the lives of animals that may otherwise die on the streets. When an animal enters Lone Star Sanctuary for Animals, it is given shelter, proper medical care, and food. While under the care of this organization, animals are also put up for adoption. Staff at Lone Star Sanctuary for Animals will try to pair each animal with a loving home that they can call their own for the rest of their lives.
The Midland Animal Shelter, which is part of the Midland Animal Control Department, is the main animal shelter in the town. This shelter deals with a lot of lost animals, so it dedicates a lot of its resources to caring for lost pets until the owner can find and reclaim the pet. Since homeless animals do end up at the Midland Animal Shelter, a volunteer group helps the Midland Animal Shelter advertise the animals to find them new homes faster.
If you are interested in bringing a new pet into your home, consider visiting Lone Star Sanctuary for Animals or Midland Animal Control.
On the first Thursday of each month, join the Midland Humane Coalition at the Midland Beer Garden for a Yappy Hour celebration from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm.

Enjoy great beer and food while your pup socializes with other local dogs.
Please only bring friendly, vaccinated dogs into the Beer Garden. If you have an unvaccinated, aggressive, or anxious pet, the Midland Humane Coalition can come to your car for the microchipping.
