“The happier the dog, the happier the home!”

Hello there! I started my experience like most, with family pets. Now I volunteer in rescue as often as possible. It’s important to me to make sure every animal is safe, healthy, and loved. For years I've even kept pet supplies and a crate in my car because I won't let a loose dog, cat, or any animal, go ignored. Recently I've gotten serious about walking/jogging. I'm hoping to improve the life of the pets that can accompany me. I'm looking forward to working with you and your beloved companion!

“Tell your dog I said, "Hi"”

I absolutely love animals. Growing up we had a dog and multiple cats, I fostered a dog for two years while his owners worked for the Peace Corps, and over one year ago I adopted my dog, Luna. I would consider it a privilege to walk and love on your dog!
