I love all animals! I owned my own dog for 12 years, but he passed last year from cancer, so I want to help other owners care for their animal friends. For many years, I fostered a range of different animals, until they found their forever homes.

Hello! I'm a college student in his sophomore year and I've been living with dogs at home my entire life. I especially love big dogs but I have the most experience with the smaller breeds since I've lived with terriers most of my life. I'm looking to help those with less time than I have with their furry friends needs! I'm pretty quiet in person but I warm up to animals really quickly.

Dog Walking in Carthage

Carthage is a small town that knows what’s important. Though the population is less than 2,500 people, there’s an animal hospital right in town. Dog lovers will be pleased to hear no puppy splinter or sniffle will go ignored in Carthage. Besides the animal hospital, there are restaurants to visit and places your dog can spend the night with you!

When you’re visiting Carthage, be sure to look up the Pik N Pig! This home-style BBQ restaurant has twenty outdoor tables where your pup can join you for a tasty lunch or savory dinner of true North Carolina BBQ. If you don’t find yourself hungry enough for a full meal, you can visit the Buggy Town Cafe. This playful nod to the town’s history as the home of a buggy factory carries through the rest of their dishes: classic cafe favorites with a playful twist.  

If you’re driving through in your RV, dogs are welcome in your campsite at Airport RV Campgrounds. Farm Pond Campground is another great choice for dog-friendly accommodations; check them out the next time you’re in Carthage! Whether you’re driving through or staying a while, Carthage has plenty to keep your tail wagging.

Downtown Carthage is the place to take a busy dog. Visit Nancy Kiser Park for a walk that will feed all of your dog’s senses. This popular park is right downtown, and typically full of people. The sports fields hold games, and the playground equipment is perfect for children. Dogs will love the smells that these crowds leave behind as you walk from one end of the park to the other! Just keep them on leash and bring a bowl to fill up at the handy fountains!

If you’re hungry, head to the East Carthage neighborhood and check out Time Out Sports Grill. You can choose from a wide selection of cold drinks and good, pub grub eats and keep your pup by your side. Try the pulled pork nachos, steak burgers, or the classic chicken wings for a great time. There are a pair of dog-friendly tables outside on the patio. Try to get to Time Out Sports Grill early to be sure to snag them, as this local hotspot is busy when there’s an important game on! You can even get a bowl of cold water for your best friend.

Moore County Parks and Recreation in this neighborhood is a surprisingly great park tucked away behind the offices for waste management disposal. The main feature is a large baseball diamond and small seating area around it, but there’s much more for your pup to explore. Hit the wide fields for a good walk! Your dog can enjoy tracking scents across the green fields. If you’re more of a jogger, the park is big enough that a couple of laps should be enough to get your blood pumping. This park is usually only busy when there’s a game scheduled in the diamond.

Reservoir Park in the nearby town of Pinehurst is an amazingly beautiful place to visit, and is only a twenty minute drive from Carthage. Your leashed dog is free to accompany you on any of the trails. The most popular paths follow the edge of the 95-acre Southern Pines Waterworks Reservoir. If you don’t love water, there are some mild hikes that lead up and away from the shore. Most dogs will love the prevalence of wildlife! From squirrels to Canadian geese, the reservoir attracts a variety of wildlife and creates plenty of interesting smells for dogs. Hounds, especially, will love this park.

The town of Cameron is just 15 minutes from Carthage by car, and boasts the  Phillips Memorial Park. This large city park features a playground, benches and tables, and best of all, walking paths. Dogs will love the latter, in addition to the wide green fields that stand out against the town backdrop. Dogs have to remain on leash in the park, and you should bring your own bowl to help them drink from the fountains. Other than that, there’s plenty to see, do, and sniff--all the ingredients for a great dog day!
