I volunteer for Rockabully AF Rescue Group based in Houston, Texas, and have been a volunteer for the Puppies for Breakfast event for the past 5 years. I am compassionate, patient, and an all around avid animal lover!

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 South Houston

The companion animals of South Houston are well served by a number of excellent animal welfare organizations, meaning that help is never far away when a dog falls on tough times!

The Houston Humane Society is just one of the many local non-profits committed to helping animals in need. With a commitment to end cruelty, abuse, and the overpopulation of animals while providing the highest quality of life to the pets in its care, the society has made a huge difference in the lives of thousands of animals. From a pet adoption program to humane education, animal crimes investigations, and a low-cost animal wellness and spay/neuter clinic, it offers a range of initiatives to help homeless animals.

However, as a non-profit organization that doesn’t receive any government funding, the Houston Humane Society relies on generous support from the community to be able to keep giving pets in need a second chance.

Rescued Pets Movement is another Houston animal welfare organization well worth a mention. This non-profit is dedicated to giving homeless dogs and cats a shot at a brighter future by rehabilitating those animals and transporting them to communities throughout the USA and Canada where there is a greater demand for adoptable pets.

It’s a unique approach and one that has seen the lives of more than 22,000 companion animals saved since late 2013. If you’d like to help Rescued Pets Movement continue this wonderful work, consider making a donation, becoming a foster carer, or volunteering your time to assist canine companions in need.
