Hi there! My name is Sabrina and I have always had a deep passion for animals. I love to work with them in any way that I can and I especially love dogs! I've had my own pup (Gracie Lou) for over 10 years now and I regularly volunteer with animal organizations in my free time. I've had the pleasure of working with a wide range of dogs with varying needs over many years. I truly love and appreciate all animals for who they are. I currently am pursuing a career in animal energy healing and take a calm loving approach with all of the animals I see. My ultimate goal is to love your pupper with lots of positive energy and make sure they are safe, happy, and healthy! Some notes on my walking style: I typically use a sturdy leash with an added traffic handle and LED light for added safety, I use eco-friendly compostable poop bags, and all pups will receive some TLC and water at the end of our walk!

“Green-haired friend to every pet!”

I walk and care for dogs / pets professionally for 14+ years. I’ve loved animals all my life! As a kid I would go knock on my neighbors’ doors and ask to walk their dogs for fun, which led me to pet-sitting and dog-walking jobs and volunteering with my local animal shelter. To every service I bring a can do attitude, knowledge gained from a degree in animal behavior and physiology, and first aid certification just in case. I'm fit, friendly, and would love to be your dog's new pal!

Dog Boarding in Vancouver

Vancouver is the largest suburb of Portland, Oregon, which regularly is featured in lists of the most pet-friendly cities in America. So it’s no great surprise to discover that this particular part of the world is home to plenty of dedicate animal welfare and rescue organizations.

The Humane Society for Southwest Washington is one of those groups. Founded in 1897, this inspirational animal welfare organization has been caring for animals throughout Southwest Washington and the surrounding areas ever since. With committed staff and the support of more than 800 volunteers, the society offers animal adoptions, lost and found services, and a commitment to creating a world where all companion animals can live out their lives in a loving home.

Second Chance Companions is also committed to helping animals in the Southwest Washington and Portland metro area. Founded in 1993, this non-profit is a no-kill organization staffed entirely by volunteers. Though only a small organization and one that doesn’t have its own shelter, Second Chance Companions feeds, cares for, adopts out, and spays and neuters as many animals as possible in the local community.

Finally, Must Love Dogs NW is another local rescue group that’s well worth a mention. Since 2008, this non-profit organization has worked tirelessly to try and achieve its goal of ending pet homelessness. It offers training assistance, educates the public on responsible dog ownership, and rehomes abused, neglected, and homeless dogs.

With a large network of dedicated volunteer foster carers, Must Love Dogs NW relies entirely on the generosity of the community to fund its excellent work. If you’d like to make a difference in the lives of animals in need, donations are always welcome.
