I grew up with a dog named Terry in Virginia Beach, VA for the first 18 years of my life. I currently am a board member of the Norfolk SPCA and own a cat named noraA. I enjoy watching my best friend's two Golden Retrievers when he goes out of town as well as my sister's three Boston Terriers when she goes out of town. I already walk between 10-15 miles per day on my own so the opportunity to combine my love of dogs and walking is very exciting to me.

Hello! My name is Tonya. I have recently left my high paying job where I was extremely unhappy to do something I love which is dogs! I am available full time now with a very flexible schedule. I will be going to school soon to finally get my vet tech degree and in the meantime, I thought what a better way to gain experience than to help others take care of their fur babies! I have 2 babies of my own currently. One of them has medical conditions so I'm very comfortable with any task before me!

Hey, my name is Eli and I love animals and the outdoors! I grew up interacting with all kinds of animals in the South Miami area from house pets like dogs and cats to the local wild animals like ducks, turtles, and iguanas.
