About Kelly

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My name is Kelly & I am a Stay At Home Mom & dog lover all wrapped up in one! I can't think of a better way to spend my day other than with my family and your dog as our new family friend!! My commitment to you is that your dog will be treated as an extension of our family and will be surrounded in a safe & nurturing environment.

We have a clean home with plenty of room to run and stretch out. Your dog will have beautiful areas & trails to enjoy along the Little Gunpowder River. We have our upstairs closed off to pets but have a great main floor with a gated wrap around porch where we spend a lot of our evenings in the spring, summer & fall and a fireplace to warm their little paws in the winter. We have a 4 year old little Chihuahua/Poodle Mix named Alice. Alice has been great with the 4 foster dogs we adopted out this year. Alice is ready to lend a helping hand with Kelly's Home Away From Home.

Please bring your own dog food so we can avoid any stomach issues and provide your dog with consistency. This is to include instructions on feeding (amounts & frequency). Please feel free to bring anything that could help your dog with any kind of separation anxiety. Things to consider - dog bowls, special toys, blanket, pillow and/or their own crate. If your dog is not normally crated, we discuss other options if for some reason your dog should need a break.

I am very excited for the opportunity your are about to give me We will work together to make sure you & your dog have the best experience at Kelly's Home Away From Home.

Thank you,

Tucker came to our family as a 2.5 year old pup. Within his first month with us, we had overnight plans for the weekend. Unfortunately, he couldn't join us on our trip. We definitely didn't want to board him - He was already struggling with the transition from his first family. He joined Kelly and her family (2 and 4 legged members) that weekend and I breathed a huge sigh of relief. She was so caring with him and understood his need to be close. Her genuine love for animals was apparent within seconds of her greeting our nervous pooch. Kelly's home was a great physical and social environment for our furry kid. He's been back to stay with her several times and always enjoys the visit. Dr. Jennifer S. (Psychologist/dog parent)

Kelly takes care of our dogs when we go on vacation. Both of our dogs love staying with Kelly and we know they are getting the best care and attention while we are away. We know that they are in a family setting and not a kennel. We have recommended Kelly to family and friends.

I was introduced to Kelly through a mutual friend. I was in the middle of selling my home, and moving out of state and not able to take my two dogs with me. I was so worried that i was not going to be able to find them a good home. Kelly seen my post on facebook, and volunteered to take them in, and or find them a home. Kelly was able to provide my two dogs with a love home and family, plus was able to keep them together. She keeps me and my family posted on facebook on how well taken care of they are...spoiled mostly. I am very thankful that she was able to provide my dogs with such a lovely home. I thank God that she is such as caring person to have such as big heart. I would recommend her and her services any day to care for your pets.

As a mom to a special needs fur-baby I'm very cautious who she stays with and the only person she will stay with is Kelly. My dog Lady is 150 lbs, 10 years old, has IBS, is diabetic and has cancer. She has a special diet that she can't stray from and has to get insulin shots every 12 hours. The slightest thing can throw everything off. When she is with Kelly I know her diet restrictions are being met, that she's getting her shots, and that Kelly knows what signs to watch out for high or low blood sugar. Lady gets all the love and attention at Kelly's that she's used to getting at home. When I ask Lady if she wants to go to Kelly's she meets me at the door with her leash. We are very blessed to have Kelly.
