About Donna

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi, my name is Donna and I have had dogs in my life since I was 8 years old. Most times I had 2 dogs with breeds ranging from Huskies, Shepherd/St. Bernard mix, and Rottweilers, to rescue fosters of Labs, and Pitt crosses. Our current dog, Portilla, was rescued from Dominican Republic by me in June 2016. I work with a rescue group and help where I can with fostering. I also spend time at Pooch Palace in Uxbridge where I take dogs for a few hours to socialize and exercise.
Our home is small and cozy and there is always someone here as I work from home.
A typical day starts early with my partner letting pups out and feeding them. I wonder down mid morning and they are out again while I have coffee. We take a nice neighbourhood walk and then quiet time while I do some work. I am always available for hugs and rubs which happens often.
Portilla loves to play and has toys and ropes for fun. An afternoon walk in Elgin Park is followed by a visit to Pooch Palace to see my friend Penny and let the dogs run and socialize in her large yard.
Home for dinner and they are usually pooped out by then. An evening walk and several yard visits before bed. Couch or dog beds for sleeping.
There are treats and kongs filled with goodies as per instructions.
While our yard is small and really best used for doggy "business", there is a small park across the street from us and as we are right in town, the dogs have neighbourhood walks instead of just time in a yard.

Donna has a lot of experience with dogs. Having adopted and rescued many over the years she loves dogs more than people lol.

Any dog would be happy to spend time with her as they are her love and would receive the best care and attention.

I have personally seen her interact with dog that she has not met prior and it has always gone well.

I would totally trust her to care for my best furry friend.

Donna has a very deep love for dogs. She has taken dogs in while waiting to be adopted, has kept them and nursed them through operations and has even brought a couple of strays home from the Dominican Republic. She has kept one of them as her own and found a good home for the other. She would be an asset to have in the DogVacay group and would take excellent care of anyone's dog.

Donna is a huge dog lover
She has fostered from rescues several dogs over the past few years and has adopted 2 (one who sadly passed) DONNA's love for cherry gave cherry a great 2 final years!
I have entrusted my dog Maggie with DONNA as well
I think She is a great candidate for pet sitting

What can I tell you about Donna? And her love for animals? Well, in the year that I have known her I have seen her take empathy and compassion for homeless and abused dogs. She has rescued two from the Dominican Republic and found them amazing homes in Canada. She does not complain about how much it has costed her or the time and love she has put in for these adorable puppies. She is the first to stand up and care for one in need. I highly recommend her! If your animal ends up staying with Donna they will live like queens and kings and have all the love they could ever wish for. The only thing she needs is crowns to place on there little heads. Absolutely recommend her.

Donna was extremely approachable, caring and provided overall exceptional care to my dog over the course of a two wk stay. She was flexible around arranging a meet and greet and sat with me to ensure both myself and my dog were comfortable with her home prior to leaving my pet. All questions around routines and care were heard and answered. Any accommodations were provided, with reassurance that she would do all possible to provide my dog a happy and stress-free stay. Donna's experience and skill in handling and caring for dogs was evident and left me feeling confident while I was away. Many pictures were sent, as were texts and emails, assuring me of how things were going and putting my mind at ease. An update of how she did was shared upon return- along with more pictures. The next day, Donna also followed up to ask how Misty was settling back in at home after her stay. It was a pleasure and a positive experience. Donna's loving care for Misty was very much appreciated and I would recommend her home to others!
