So glad we found Karen. She is a true professional and has the passion for those she cares for. Next time my sister and her precious dog visit we will call on Karen again.

Trained animal handler

PLEASE TAKE TIME TO READ MY PROFILE AND RATES. I founded and operate an animal rescue and transport, I volunteer with HSUS and ASPCA with years of deployment experience. I have completed two spayathons in Puerto Rico with H.P.A.B. in June and November 2018 where I was recovery lead for ICU and discharge after surgery as well as intake and surgical instruments department. I work with all breeds of dogs, cats and ...

What Karen would like to know about your dog

No breed preference as I have worked with Poodles to Pitbulls to Great Danes, Mastiffs, Labs, Chihuahua etc. One requirement I request to know up front is if the dog has cat or other dog anxiety or aggressive behavior towards other dogs. I require all pets to be fully vaccinated (spay/neuter) is not required as I have rooms to separate pets as needed. Vetting papers or Vet contact information required as I will call for verification of vetting. ?

About Karen's Home

When Karen watches your pet

I live in a semi private community with a nice walking area with sidewalks and shaded areas, if you like your dog to walk on the beach I can do that in the evenings or early morning when the sand is cool. We will play in my fenced in yard or play with one of the many toys I have in my home. Your dog or cat will have it's own room and bed, crates provided if needed. I do have a separate fenced section inside my fenced yard should your dog require their own space. For dogs that are not social or a senior needing to relax they will enjoy one of my doggy rooms for relaxation. If your dog likes to go for car rides I crate or tether during rides for safety. I transport rescued animals professionally so safety first! (T Class certified USDA # available upon request).
