About Joanne

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I can't remember not having a dog in my life. My passion to care for dogs was realized a few years ago when I began to volunteer for a Rescue with a mission to save puppy mill dogs and give them a second chance at life. I have since fostered, adopted and taken into my home many dogs, some with emotional scars and medical needs. Our property is fenced with a large play area, green grass, trees, bushes, a doggie door and a sandbox too! A typical day is breakfast, followed by butt scratches & massages, outdoor play time, naps in soft doggie beds. Sunning in the afternoon, more play time, dinner, one on one attention time, a bedtime snack and lights out...time just being a dog! I am home to supervise and play 90% of the time. Available for belly rubs and butt scratches. always.... Come for a visit and peace of mind.

We are recent dog owners and we had purchased a rescue dog so we were scared to leave him but knew it was the best thing for him. Joanne was very attentive to our Jake and he had plenty of buddies to play with that each night he was tuckered out and slept well. He came home with more manners and we all love Joanne.

Joanne is absolutely FANTASTIC! My rescue dog is so super picky and he LOVES going to Gracie's Place. Tons of room to run and play, other small, sweet puppies to play with, and lots and lots of love. Joanne was a professional. She had a plan to integrate the dogs into her home slowly and safely and takes wonderful care of them. These dogs are her priority. She kept us updated throughout our trip on how our sweet little guy was doing and more importantly, how much fun he was having! I would highly recommend Joanne and Gracie's Place!!

I was going out of town for nearly 2 weeks. Joanne was recommended to me through common friends at Mill Dog Rescue. I took my dog over to meet Joanne and her dogs and everyone got along wonderfully. Joanne has a nice fenced yard and a sandbox that my dog loved (he always likes to roll in dirt). I knew my dog would be happy staying here and that made me happy and less anxious about leaving. Throughout the week, Joanne kept in touch and sent me photos and spent much of her week at home taking care of him. I plan on using Joanne again and cant imagine a better place for my dog to be.

We had never left our beloved Spike with anyone but family. Joanne was the perfect choice for us. He was treated like part of the family, sleeping on Joanne's lap and in bed just like he does at home. Spike now has a new Aunt! He loved being at Auntie Joanne's. We will be back over and over again.

My dogs had a wonderful time (as usual)! they came home exhausted from all the play time in Joanne's backyard. Thanks again :)
It was wonderful to leave our dog with JoAnn! She is very friendly and kind to the dogs. She send a report and pictures every day.We couldn't have been more pleased with the great customer service. She has great backyard for the dogs to play in.
Joanne was wonderful with my 10 year old Yorkie! She updated me with photos and messages daily and was very flexible with drop off/pick up times. I will definitely be using her again to watch my dog. Thanks so much Joanne!
I was so very happy to find Joanne. I have rescues from National Mill Dog Rescue and I wanted to make sure they would be in the best of hands with someone who understood dogs. Turns out they didn't miss me at all, they were so relaxed in her care :-)

I had no qualms leaving my guys at Joanne's for a long weekend. They were well cared for and seemed to have a great time exploring her yard and playing with her pups. My little one even might have found a girlfriend in her darling little foster!
Joanne is amazing! She loves each and every dog as if it was her own. Our rescue dog is afraid of everyone but me. But when I picked her up, she was wiggling up to Joanne like she does to me! She would only do that if she felt completely safe and loved. I cannot recommend Joanne highly enough. I would not take my dogs anywhere else.

I never worried about my dogs at all. Joanne made me feel very comfortable and opened up her heart and home to my little ones. She has the perfect setup and my dos came home tired after all the play time and live they got! Will definitely be going back!!

I was so impressed with Joanne Scott, oh my she gave me updates everyday and pictures of my dog and just kept me up to date on everything. I was gone for almost 9 days so it was a relief seeing all these updates and knowing my dog Sam was in good hands. I was so happy to know that Sam is welcome back there as she got to run outside and play play play, Thanks so much

Joanne was wonderful! I have a senior lab and a 4 year old rescue dog that she took great care of. My dogs enjoyed staying with her and you could tell she gave them lots of attention. She kept me updated daily with how they were doing and quickly answered my questions through text. She was able to be flexible with drop off and pick up times due to some unforeseen circumstances. I plan to use her again.

Joanne kept me updated several times a day about how Wish was doing. She kept me informed on how she was eating, sleeping, and acting. I felt VERY reassured that my baby girl was being WELL cared for. I will definitely take Wish back to Joanne when I am needing a care giver for my Yorkie girl.

Joanne took great care of my boy. He's a puppy mill survivor and she knew how to make him feel at home. Great job, absolutely happy with the service provided!!!
Joanne is such a nice person! This was Stellas first time away from home but once I met Joanne I was more excited for her vacay then my own! :) Her home and other pets were awesome. She kept us updated on Stella. Overall a wonderful experience and we will most definitely be back. Once we got Stella home, she slept til the next day! She had a ton of fun for sure! :) Thank you Joanne!

I have two former puppy mill mamas that each have their own issues. Joanne was so incredibly great with them. I don't think either one wanted to come home! She loves and cares for them like they are her own, and she is great about sending updates on them while you are away. I am so thankful to be able to leave my girls with her and not worry at all!

Joanne did a wonderful job taking Bella into her family and providing a home away from home. She provided timely updates while we were on the road and took great care of Bella. She exceeded all our requirements and we are very pleased.
