About: I have a two dogs and a cat. I've fostered for different rescues in the area and can provide references upon request. We've had every type of pup here and haven't ever had to turn one away. I have areas separated by gates for our cat friends to feel secure and rest if needed. I have two litter boxes, one on each level. My pup is Ollie, a yellow lab born around 2014. He was a rescue from Homeward Bound animal shelter and is the best boy! Paddy (Padfoot), my Labradooodle was born around 2021 and has such a sweet disposition! He was also adopted from Homeward Bound. I've also fostered dogs through SBARC and for Homeward bound. I love helping our furry friends feel comfortable and loved.
“Ingrid was great! She accommodated our last minute needs, and took great care of my little guy. I picked him up and he was happy and tired and fell asleep in the car immediately. Whenever we're in town again, we'll definitely call her!”
“We were very pleased with the care our beagle received. Her back yard is fenced which allowed Spencer to be outside without a leash, which he loves. Will use her again, absolutely!”
“Jamie was wonderful to work with. Our pup really enjoyed his day. We could tell because he was tired when we picked him up! I would definitely recommend Jamie.”
“Lindsay was very accommodating and took great care of my 2 fur babies. She sent pictures while we were out and made us feel very comfortable leaving our doggies while visiting from out of the area. Would recommend! Thanks Lindsay!”
“Lydia is very reliable, trustworthy and a pet lover. She’s professional and loves the outdoors. If your pet enjoys hiking, running or playing outside, Lydia would be great!”
“Rascal had so much fun spending the day with Maria and her family. Really felt like I was leaving Rascal at his second home. Will definitely be coming back to Maria!”
“Ava is absolutely amazing with all animals! She has watched my dog Bronco multiple times and he is always so excited to see her! I trust Ava with all of my pets and would 100% have her watch them anytime. She cares for them like her own and always makes sure to send updates and photos! She is awesome and I would definitely trust her with any animals.”
“Dustin is a kind, experienced caretaker of both cats and dogs. He is able to handle dogs and cats of any size. He has experience in households with cats and dogs living together and understands that dynamic and the needs of pets in a multi species household. Whether it be taking your dog for a walk or snuggling on the couch with your cat, you can trust Dustin to give as much love and care to your pet as you would. He is very responsible and diligent. You can count on him to be there for your fur babies.”
“This was my second time leaving my dog Poppy with Karen and she was just as awesome as she was the first time! Karen took excellent care of Poppy and Poppy lives her as well as her husband. We will be back for sure!”
“Jessica took great care of my Vinny while we were traveling for work. Vinny returned happy and tired. He had fun with some new friends and my mind was at ease knowing he was well cared for. We definitely hope to see Jessica again when we're back in town!”
“Mabel did so well with Taryn! She felt very comfortable and Mabel even ate her lunch which she doesn't tend to do when nervous. We will definitely be back! Thanks so much!”
About: I've been taking care of my own and others' pets since I was a baby! I've trained a few puppies on how to sit and stay, come here, and generally behaving better! I promise I'll ensure your pets are not only safe but happy! I'm currently looking through some education and career options, so I'm home all week long. I go to sleep and wake up after everyone else in my family, so we can let your dog out to go potty on a very consistent basis. All animals in my care will be provided with an AirTag to ensure they can be easily located should anything happen. I have a fenced-in yard, two dogs, and three cats to keep your pets entertained and exercising. My dogs are super friendly and the cats don't bother anyone.
“Coco has loved her says with Kim and her family! I leave Coco each stay knowing she will be safe and have a great time. Kim does fantastic keeping me updated with picture updates and summaries of what the dogs are up to. She has a wonderful sized fenced yard for the dogs to run around in.”
“Katherine was great and our Lillie was very happy staying with her.”
“Valeria is the type of person to stop the group she’s walking with to point out a cute dog a block away. She loves dogs almost more than people, probably more than some people, and she shows it by taking care of her dog as her child. I’d trust my dog with his life with a person like her.”
“Julie was not only very caring and responsible with my fur-baby, she also saved her from my ex who tried to take her when I wasn't around. A real life saver!”
About: I have been caring for dogs and other pets since I was just a kiddo! I've never known life without a family dog or cat. I am completely gaga over dogs and love to run, play, hike and explore with them. I live just a hop away from an open grassy area that I let my own doggy run free through when I have my days off work, and I would spend tons of quality time with your baby (because I know that your pup is really another member of your family). I am a non-smoker in a dog-friendly community. I have no kids myself, so your dog will be my first and top priority. I completely understand how difficult it will be to leave your pal, but I would truly love the opportunity to make you feel comfortable with a temporary distance from your furry friend! :) While I would LOVE to be able to tell you exactly what days and times I will be available to watch your baby, I am a registered nurse and there is no such thing as a "routine schedule" in my life. Every week is different for me. And, in the interest of full disclosure, when I am at work, I am gone for a long period of time during the day. On the flip side, when I'm home, I'm home all darn day! On the days where I don't work, my dog consistently gets outdoor time of usually an hour or more, but unfortunately, due to the nature of my job, I can't promise that it would be every day that your pet is booked with me. Even still, I would love the chance to make them a welcome friend in my home! While I do live in an apartment, my dog is spoiled with tons of attention and outdoor play. My apartment overlooks a large grassy area where me and my dog put the Chuck-It and a good ol' Frisbee to good use.
