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!

“Love them all!”

I love meeting new dogs and giving them a great time outdoors! My own dog is deaf and blind so I'm experienced with special needs dogs. I also foster for a local rescue so I'm also experienced with dogs of all backgrounds.
