I have worked with Ally now for over a year at the San Francisco SPCA. She started with us a File Clerk and has worked up to Night/ER Client Liaison. Her promotion is well deserved due to her compassion for the animals, excellent customer services skills (often in very stressful, emergent situations), her great smile and attitude. She's reliable and responsible; comes to work, ready to work. Her love and care for the animals ...

It would be very hard to find another human being who cares about dogs the way Ally does. Her compassion, above and beyond kindness, and empathy towards dogs is completely unique to her. She has grown up with dogs her whole life, and is carrying her love into the next phase of her life, making a profession out of it. Because of her experience and expertise, I always trust and use Ally's guidance when it ...

When you hear the phrase, "shes a dog lover" they were talking about Allyson! I've never met a person more passionate and caring towards animals, especially towards our furry four legged friends. Rarely has there been a time when we have walked down the street that she has been able to pass up the chance to give a pup, young or old, a loving greeting and a friendly scratch behind the ear. Dogs love Ally ...

When Allyson watches your pet

- I am not doggy breed-biased, though I grew up with larger dogs: Chocolate lab named Hershey, Australian Shepherd Mix named Avery and a Pit Bull/Boxer Mix named Lulu.
- Used to a multi-dog house; able to handle high-energy dogs.
- Trained all of my family's pets with positive conditioning. Know how to train all kinds of temperaments.
- Can read canine body language well; knows how to protect your dog and others.
- Active - can go jogging or on hikes/long walks/long fetch sessions with your dog.

When your fur baby stays with me, I treat them like my own. I am very tech savvy and can send you picture/video/text/email updates about how your favorite pooch is doing. Because I have an allergic roommate, I am unable to provide care in my own home. However, I am reliable and clean - I will keep your home and your dog happy and clean throughout the whole stay/visit. I also have the ability to bring your dog to work with me - I work at a veterinary hospital and they provide kennels, so your dog will never be alone for long periods of time. I'm currently training for a 5k and need a running buddy so if you prefer, I can exercise your dog this way. Otherwise, I can use my car to get to great dog-friendly hiking venues, dog parks, etc. Finally, your dog will be absolutely spoiled with love and attention. My life revolves around dogs 24/7 and I wouldn't have it any other way - I've even been called a "dog whisperer!" Please feel free to contact me so we can see if this will be a match made in heaven!
