My name is Rhiannon, and I would love to walk your pup! Ever since I was a child my passion has been taking care of animals, dogs in specific. In fact, it's my dream to open a dog sanctuary for old or injured dogs. I currently take care of a beautiful pitbull named Nala and she's taught me so much about our little furry friends. My favorite pastime is walking, so choosing me means your dog gets a long healthy walk, because I'll love every second of it!
After years of begging my parents, I adopted my best friend, Rascal, when I was eight years old and he has been by my side ever since. Adopting him inspired me to start volunteering at Shelter From the Storm, the local rescue where we got him from, and taking on pet-sitting jobs around my neighborhood. Now, as a part-time college student and a full-time animal lover, I love being a pet-sitter because it brings me into contact with so many wonderful animals. With each and every dog having it's own unique personality, I could never get bored of this job.
“A walk a day keeps the doggy doctor away!”
Hello hello! My name is Isabelle and I'm a 20-year-old college student. My family has always had dogs growing up and I also worked at a dog daycare a few summers ago where I spent each day playing with and taking care of 10-15 dogs, so I have lots of experience dealing with dogs of different temperaments, energy levels, personalities, etc. I have also been a dog-sitter on multiple occasions for family friends. I'd love to meet your pup and take them on a little adventure!

I am an animal lover since birth. My passion led me to become a Certified Veterinary Technician. Now that I am a mom of 2, I get my dog fix by walking and boarding other people's dogs! I can't wait to meet your furry friend.

Hello!!! My name is Stacy and I would like to tell you a little about myself and my experiences that will help you feel more comfortable about leaving your fur babies in my care. I was a Veterinary Technician for over 20+ years and also have had several animals of my own through the years. Since I retired from the field, I have missed seeing and spending time with clients and their animal babies! With dog walking, I can enjoy time with them again! I mean, really, why would you NOT want to be happily greeted, kissed AND get some exercise all at the same time!!??
Hi! My name is Julia. I was born and raised in West Allis and I've grown up with dogs and other pets which has lead to my love of animals. I'd say I love animals even more than people, and I plan to work with animals for a career after I go to college.
Hello! My name is Melissa. Growing up I've always had a big heart for all animals. I am the owner of two lovely pups, Chloe and Myho. Chloe is in her later years while Myho is my rescue younger pup. I look forward to helping out where I can for you and your pup.

My name is Tim and I have been a dog lover since I was young. Growing up, we always had a dog in our house. This taught me a lot about responsibility for a pet and their care. I love spending time with dogs, both indoors and outdoors, and giving them special attention. There is nothing better than being greeted by a four-legged friend and having your face covered with kisses! I would love to take your dog outside to explore nature, play, and make sure that they are cared for so you don't have to worry about them.

I am a previous dog owner of two Lhasa apsos. I have dog Sat for a family while they were on vacation for a week. I have regularly gone over to a families home to let the puppy out and go for a walk with her while the family was at work. I miss not having dogs and going for walks with them. I am unable to have dogs right now because of where we live
Janesville, WI is home to the county’s only animal shelter, the Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin. Founded in 1910, the Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin has been rescuing and rehoming animals in need for over one hundred years! The organization’s mission is to provide shelter and humane care to lost and homeless pets, reunite lost pets with their families, promote positive pet adoptions, and educate the community to inspire compassion and responsible pet guardianship.
The humane society offers a number of services including microchipping, transport to SpayMe! in Madison (a low-cost veterinary clinic providing spay/neuter services to low-income households), and a vaccine clinic. Annually, the shelter impacts the lives of more than 4,000 animals.
One of the organization’s unique programs pairs unadoptable dogs with jail inmates who work with and train pups to prepare them for a fur-ever home. Currently, the humane society works with inmates at the Rock County and Dane County jails. Inmates receive training from a professional dog trainer and then work with their assigned pup one-on-one, daily until the dog is ready for adoption. The program not only helps prepare shelter dogs for life with humans but also offers inmates a new skill and the chance to make a difference while they’re serving time.
Each September, before closing for the season, the City of Janesville Parks Division welcomes canines to Palmer Park’s West Pavilion & Wading Pool for a day of swimming and happy tails. Pack a bag and bring your fur-kid to the pool for Pooch Fest! Pet service-related businesses and non-profits are on hand to provide information about their goods and services. Proceeds from the event benefit Paw Print Park!
Hosted by the Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin, in collaboration with the Alaskan Malamute Club of Wisconsin, Pooch Pull is a great wintertime event for dog lovers! Athletic pups will compete in a pulling competition, with top dogs pulling 12 times their body weight! Chili, hot beverages, and baked goods will be available for a suggested donation. And don’t miss out on the 50/50 raffle. Proceeds from the event benefit the Humane Society of Sothern Wisconsin!
Start a new Thanksgiving Day tradition at the Turkey Trot Dog Jog! Hosted by Festival Foods, the Janesville event takes place at Craig High School. Each Thanksgiving, Festival Foods hosts Turkey Trot in ten communities across the state—making it the largest running event based on registered participants in Wisconsin! Humans and canines must register for the 2-mile Dog Jog, with proceeds from the event benefiting the local Boys & Girls Club and YMCA. Human registration is $20 and includes a long sleeve t-shirt, pumpkin pie, and single-serve bag of coffee! Pup registration is $5 and includes a Turkey Trot bandana and coupon for a dog treat.
Support Friends of Noah All Breed Animal Rescue and get in the Christmas spirit at Pet Photos with Mr. & Mrs. Claus! Dogs, cats, and humans are welcome to come get their picture taken with the North Pole’s only and most famous residents. Proceeds benefit the rescue and help animals in Rock County. Pet food donations will also be collected to benefit area shelters. Photo session time slots are limited and reservations are required.
Janesville is home to three dog exercise areas! Designated portions of Palmer Park and Rock River Parkway are open to unleashed pets, but they are not fenced in. You may run or train your pup off leash in these areas as long they are under your control at all times. Pets—leashed or not—are not permitted in Janesville parks and trails between May 15 and September 15, except in these designated portions. Paw Print Park is a fenced-in dog park within Prairie Knoll Park where you can run your fur-friend off leash year-round! A daily or annual permit is required at Paw Print Park.
