The Live.WagBARK! Foundation - Pet Sitting/Boarding and Dog Walking/Grooming
Like our fellow community organizations mentioned above, we too saw a need to ease or assist with the financial commitment of adding a pet to your family.
Request your appointment online and you will receive a confirmation within 24 hours.
Our mission is to educate pet owners on responsible pet ownership. Although there are many organizations helping animals in need, that doesn’t solve the actual problem of poor pet care.
We believe the best way to educate those without resources taking the information to them and be as hands on as possible. By partnering with local animal rescues, city animal control, dog trainers and groomers, we will show pet owners how to build a bond with their pet, understand their behavior and give them tools to help their pet live a long happy and healthy life.
We are the only local organization offering low-cost pet sitting/boarding and dog walking/grooming.
Tip: We are 100% volunteer based. Availability of appointments as based on availability of volunteers. Submit requests early for the best chance of getting your desired appointment.
