Hi, I'm Monica! I have loved dogs since I was a child. My husband and I have 2 sheepadoodles named Brodie and Hayden. Walking is my favorite way to stay active, especially when I can bring the pups along and have them burn some energy too. I have experience taking care of my friends' dogs when they are busy or traveling. I am a 1st grade teacher with plenty of time this summer to make sure your dog is taken care of and exercised! I can't wait to meet you and your pup!

As a seasoned Wag Walker my #1 Goal is to ensure your dog(s) and YOU have a super experience. I am a seasoned mature dog walker and care taker I also assist with any notes for feeding and playing for Puppies or Elderly or Sick dogs. Some dogs don't want to walk they need T.L.C. and that is just fine or working on challenges like anxiety and training challenges. I specialize in big breeds and puppies as well as seniors. Available for extra t.l.c. time too like massaging them and pets and love. Pick me as your preferred WAG walker to allow me ample time to answer you about my schedule and provide YOU with Video, notes and suggestions for your dog while you are gone or at work.

Dog Boarding in Waco

Waco, Texas, like almost all small cities in the United States, is home to many animals that don’t have a home or family to love them. A few different animal shelters in the area work hard to care for and find new homes for these animals.

The Humane Society of Central Texas (HSCT) works hard to find homes for each of the animals that come through their doors. With a 90% or higher live-exit rate, the shelter is striving to become a no-killer facility. The staff at the shelter work with the City of Waco Animal Shelter to save animals that are about to be euthanized. As a non-profit operation, the HSCT runs primarily off of donations and adoption fees. Animals in this shelter are often fostered by volunteers until they can find permanent homes.

Fuzzy Friends Rescue is known in the area as a place that not only finds animals new homes but also provides love and superior care to all the animals that end up in their care. As it is a no-kill shelter, all animals are kept at the facility until they are found homes. The rescue also helps to educate the community on responsible pet ownership to prevent more animals from entering the system than necessary. The shelter runs off donations, fundraising, and adoption fees.

If you are looking to adopt a pet in the Waco, Texas, area, consider visiting the Humane Society of Central Texas or Fuzzy Friends Rescue. You may just find a new family member at one of these shelters!
