About Alice

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am the founder and director of a nokill animal shelter in Cambridge, MA.. Prior to its foundation, I volunteered for the Blue Hill Wildlife Refuge. I have been handling a variety of animals with a variety of dispositions and backgrounds for some 30 years. I have been hired by veterinarians to provide triage care to pets whose owners are unable to afford emergency animal hospitals. I have also worked with police in the rescue of both wild and domestic animals. I have never met an animal I do not like nor could not handle.

Second dog in the same family is always only an additional $25

Please note my daily rate is $50 (still only $25 for the second dog) on the following days: Thanskgiving Eve, Thanskgiving Day, New Year's Eve, New Year's Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, July 3rd, July 4th, Labor Day, Memorial Day weekend (Sat., Sun., and Monday),

I'm very flexible with pickup and dropoff times...morning, noon, night, whatever fits yours schedule. I give a 4 hour window extension beyond the 24 hour period for pick up. After that, there is an additional $15 charge for any pickup time four hours after the original dropoff time. A daycare rate of $25 will apply to any pickup times that occur between 4 1/2 and 11 hours past the original drop off time. The overnight rate will apply to any pickup times made 11 1/2 hours past the original drop off time.

The length of daycare is 11 hours. This 11 hours can run anytime (4 a.m. to 2:30; 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m., etc.)

I am a stay at home mom with no social life (ha ha). Your dog will be with me throughout the day and be with us at night.

We walk around the neighborhood, to Goodwin Park and sometimes along the North Mill Pond. But our favorite romping grounds is Peirce Island and Strawbery Banke after hours

Alice was absolutely wonderful! Sent over pictures and updates. Aspen had a great time!
It is always nerve wracking going on vacation and leaving your hyper and playful dog with someone new, but Alice went above and beyond her duties to make sure my nerves were settle and that my dog had the best time. She put up with my hyper separation anxiety pup so well. The video and picture updates were great. You can tell dogs are a passion of Alice's. My dog wanted to stay and play longer, and didn't want to come home when I picked her up. I will definitely use Alice again in the future. She was flexible with drop off and pick up times. No complaints! Alice rocks!
Alice was wonderful with my high energy puppy! She was flexible and made Runa feel right at home. We received picture updates and even a short video of Runa playing. We picked Runa up and she was happy, fed, and tired from a full day of play! We highly recommend Alice!
We love Alice! She was very accommodating to our schedule and understanding of our dogs "unique" personalities and needs. We have a very anxious dog who has separation anxiety and another that has issues with controlling his bladder. Neither like being crated and she has a "sleep where you want" policy which was very comforting and relaxing for them. She adapted to their needs and made them feel like family. We would definitely use her again and recommend to anyone...
Alice was great. Dinky felt right at home. Alice even took her to bed with her. thank you Alice. rita huston
Alice took excellent care of Parker last weekend. He returned home relaxed and happy. He's looking forward to his next stay with her. Thank you Alice!
As a fur parent, it can be difficult to book with a sitter for the first time. However, from initial communication throughout our pets' stay, I felt very confident that my pups were in great hands. I really appreciate that Alice only accepts one reservation at a time, so her guests get plenty of attention during their stay. Besides being beautiful, her home is spacious both inside and out and vey pet friendly. Her own dog, Rachel, is a submissive and sweet girl who is very friendly with other dogs. I highly recommend Alice and look forward to booking with her again in the future!
Alice has been fantastic an accomidated several changes in our travel plans!! Our dogs loved her and I think the feelings were mutual.
Alice was the perfect choice as a sitter for our family pet Sonny. Sonny had late stage cancer and needed hands on loving care and attention and Alice and fit our needs perfectly. She is very knowledged in pet care and would be a great choice for any pet owner in need of an attentive sitter for there beloved pet!
