Hi, I’m Kim. I’m very excited to be part of the Wag team! Dogs have always played an important part of my life. Even during times when I didn’t personally own one, there was always a special dog or 2 that a friend would share with me. My experiences have been varied with dogs of all ages and sizes. Just like people, dogs have their own special personalities. I believe this makes for great fun to spend time with and get to know their unique behavior. Taking walks in Seattle neighborhoods is one of my most favorite things to do – especially when accompanied with a dog! I promise to take loving care of your dog so you will have a happy and healthy dog when you are home!

“Rain/shine & day/night I’ll walk them anytime! <3”

Hey there! I am a pet owner myself; I have three dogs that I love. Junior a lap/pit mix, Missy a Staffy and Piper a German Shep./Boxer/pit mix. All high energy and well behaved. I have been around animals my whole life. Currently when I’m not walking dogs I can be found either working at Petco or for a school. I have experience with various breeds, age and temperament. I believe myself to be honest and trusting and treat each animal as if it were my own, respectfully and loving.

I have an excellent understanding of how dogs work and I feel I and know well how to care for them in a variety of situations. I have cared for many dogs both of my own and of others'.

I am 64 years old and love dogs. My wife and I had six sons and they loved our dogs that we had as our family grew up together. Buster was our Golden and Lucky was our Jack Russell. Those dogs were members of our family and I went on many walks with them through the years. I remember one important fact about dogs, they will always treat you like a King or Queen no matter how tough their day was. I love dogs because they have shown love to me.

Dog Boarding in Kirkland

Founded in 1990, Homeward Pet Adoption Center has been compassionately rescuing, sheltering, and rehoming animals in need throughout Kirkland and the surrounding communities. Originally operating as the Hooterville Pet Safehaus, the organization was founded on the belief that euthanasia should only ever be considered as a last resort to end suffering from illness or injury. 

The tiny no-kill shelter rehomed 20 dogs and 350 cats during their first year in operation. Today, the organization has grown and relocated, providing care, shelter, and forever homes for more than 1,000 animals every year. Each animal that comes through the doors at Homeward Bound receives a full veterinary examination, vaccinations, microchip identification, and a spay/neuter before they are made available for adoption. 

The shelter advocates for spay and neuter as a humane and effective method to mitigate pet overpopulation and prevent unwanted litters, thus strengthening the local community. To make this an attainable goal, the shelter operates the Homeward Pet Low-Cost Spay & Neuter Clinic. They also work with the community to carry out their Last Litter Program, a service available to spay dogs and cats brought in with adoptable litters. 

To serve the animals and pet owners of the community, Homeward Pet offers free training classes with every adoption, a pet food bank for families in need, daily shelter, dog behavioral training, a foster program, and a canine enrichment program. Homeward Pet Adoption Center relies on the generosity and dedication of volunteers to maximize the quality of life of the shelter's dogs and cats. 

The ultimate goal of the shelter is to find a responsible, permanent home and life full of love for every homeless animal that seeks refuge in their establishment.
