Hi! My name is Tammy, I work from early morning to afternoon ( Monday through Friday) and was looking for something to fill up my empty time! I volunteer every other weekend at an animal shelter. I am used to being around dogs, meeting and greeting new ones, and taking them on walks and giving them baths. I have 4 pups of my own that my husband and I have trained! I love working with animals and meeting new ones are always fun! I’m pretty much available all week!

Hi there, my name is Grace. I grew up on a farm in WV, so I've always loved animals. I've always had great big happy dogs growing up, including a chocolate lab and a mastiff. I have two fluffy family members right now, my old lady cat, Luna, and our energetic pitbull/lab mix, Theo.
