Hi, I am John. I have always had a warm spot in my heart for dogs and would love to help keep your dog happy and healthy, providing his or her daily walk with Wag! I grew up and have lived with many different breeds of dogs, from Miniature Pinchers and Poodles to Boxers and Sheep Dogs. I have experience as a veterinary assistant, a shelter volunteer, and I have cared for a litter of nine healthy puppies from birth until adoption. I am responsible, knowledgable and clear-headed. I understand that dogs are as different from one another as people, and look forward to meeting your special friend!

Dog Boarding in Tacoma

Located on the banks of the Puget Sound, the scenic city of Tacoma has a range of services that offer care and compassion to animals. The story of the Humane Society of Tacoma and Pierce County reflects the culture and history of this Pacific Northwest community. In 1888, when Tacoma was a frontier town, a logger brought a baby bear cub into town and started kicking it to make it perform tricks. The people gathered, summoned the Justice of Peace and had the man arrested. That same week, a group of town leaders assembled and formed this humane society, the fourth in the nation. 

At first, the society worked to the benefit of children, livestock and working animals. As conditions changed, the mission shifted to companion animals and pets. Today, The Humane Society shelters more than 12,000 animals every year, maintains more than a dozen Humane Programs, and is at the forefront of progressive animal welfare. This is "paw-sitively" an exceptional organization with services that include a pet food bank, pet loss grief support group,  spay and neuter services, microchip plus foster and adoption services. 

With a commitment to saving lives, the volunteers help save as many animal lives as possible by collaborating with and supporting both local and out-of-state shelters, rescue groups, and animal welfare programs who find themselves overwhelmed by full kennels. They provide education and bi-annual newsletters with updates and tips. Donors help to raise funds for veterinary care as well as helping with the costs of saving lives.
