My name is Nichole and I live in Des Moines. I currently volunteer at an animal shelter, so I love working with animals! I have grown up with dogs of our own, but am unable to have one at the moment. I would enjoy helping out a dog that would otherwise be cooped up all day.

“It's all about the fur babies big and small!”

My name is Penny Merta.  My love for animals began at a very early age. There hasn’t been a time in my life when pets weren’t a part of it. Pets are my passion! As a pet lover myself I understand the difficulty of finding someone who will care for your pets and respect your home. All pets are unique and deserve undivided attention.If you have a bored pooch and need daily dog walks, I will be there.

Although there are no dog parks in the small city of Polk City, don’t despair. The city is only 20 miles from Farrar and home to the High Trestle Trail. This recreational trail is one of nearly 1,600 railroad trails preserved by the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy. It is not a dog park, but it is a great place to take your pup for a long, beautiful walk through the gorgeous scenery that Iowa has to offer. However, remember that all dogs must be leashed at all times. Furthermore, since it is not a dog park, there will be no amenities catering to dogs. Make sure you take doggie poop bags, water and water bowl for your pooch.
