About DONNA

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a volunteer with a group that rescues dogs from puppy mills. I foster and help rehabilitate these dogs and get them ready for a home of their own. I love spending time out back with the dogs. I have a big backyard that is great for playing ball with the dogs. On cool days I like to take them for walks around the block. When I watch dogs they are treated as family members. I make special healthy treats for all to share. I have experience with special needs dogs and dogs that come from mils that are afraid and shy. I have watched dogs that have needed medication and other special requests.

Donna is the most caring, awesome sitter we could ever ask for. Our little Fred is a special needs dog and loves her time at Donna's - in fact, sometimes we think she might enjoy being there more than she enjoys being with us!
We dropped the dogs off on Friday at noon and picked them up Monday around noon. All went well and they were excited to see us. We usually take them with us, but this was a nice option!
Donna was just great and took such good care of Emmy. I know she enjoyed her vacay and was well taken care of. I will use Donna in any future vacations that I take
I went on allot of trips with my 2 friends from Arizona until my husband passed away 3 years ago. (My husband did not like to travel) My brother kept my 2 Chihuahuas a couple times until he moved to the mountains 130 miles from me. Pups are 9 and 10. I would not kennel them! Finally after three years I found Donna. She is the best person and most reliable, kind and loving person in the world I would leave them with. I just got back from a 7 day vacation with my friends. I would trust her anytime to leave them with her!

It was a very positive experience. We were so appreciative to have our dogs in a home where they could go outside into a very nice backyard. We enjoyed the pictures and notes Donna texted us daily of our dogs enjoying themselves -:). Both of my dogs bonded with Donna and her husband and will be staying with Donna again soon.

Mylo wagged his tail!!!!
Mylo has really been coming out of his shell since going to Donna's. He loves Jr!!
Donna takes care of our pup as if she were her own!
Donna is amazing!! So thankful to find her to care for my mill rescue girls!!!
Donna is wonderful!! My two puppy mill rescues were spoiled with affection while I was gone. Donna sent pictures and updates every day which made me feel extra secure about them being there. Highly recommend to anyone with small dogs!!!
Donna is the perfect host! Our dogs were cared for every minute and clearly loved their vacation. Donna let them play in the back yard and gave them tons of TLC! She sent us frequent pics which we especially loved. I recommend her completely!
Always the best!!!
Donna's house is all about the dogs! You can tell Donna's husband loves the pups as much as she does. I had a very long, out of country trip, and felt confident leaving my dogs in Donna's care. My skittish mill dog did well, and my more outgoing pup didn't seem to know if he was supposed to leave her pack and come home with me. She sent me photos to let me see how the guys were doing along the way.

Great communication! Had some bumps early on with Pearl, but Donna didn't give up on her and even started training her! Glad to have found someone that I can trust with my special needs pups!
Having Donna watch my little ones was a great experience from start to finish. I was nervous leaving my newly rescued pom with anyone, but Donna quickly put me at ease. Her experience with mill rescues was evident and she was able to give each of my dogs the special attention they needed. I really enjoyed the daily photos and updates too. Thanks Donna!

Donna and her husband Bill were wonderful, from beginning to end. During our meet and greet, our shy, nervous senior mill rescue Nutmeg pooped all over Donna's garage, patio, and even inside her house. Then when we brought her back for the actual stay, she did it again. Donna and Bill were unfazed. We felt very comfortable with them caring for Nutmeg, and Donna sent frequent updates and pictures throughout the day so we never worried. I could tell Nutmeg enjoyed her stay (which is HUGE for a dog terrified of strangers and unfamiliar places) because when we arrived to pick her up, she was running around outside and acted like she didn't want to leave. We will only be using Donna from now on, and are excited for Nutmeg to return in a few weeks. High recommend, especially for mill rescues! She gives a discount for NMDR dogs, too!

I'm so thankful to have a great sitter like Donna. I was caught up in the Houston flooding mess and didn't get home until 2 days after I was scheduled to be home. Donna kept in close contact with me, assuring me there was no issue and that the dogs were fine until I got there. She even ran out and bought more food (in the middle of a stupid snowstorm!) for them. I finally made it and my dogs showed NO gratitude to her whatsoever, running over to me and waiting at the door for us to leave. I, on the other hand, am VERY grateful to Donna!

Poor Donna--one of my kids (Lexi, I'm sure), got into the trash and dog food and had a grand old time. She roped all the dogs into the aftermath and Donna sent me video. The bigger one, Ed, was initially blamed, but I've had him 14 years and he has NEVER done anything wrong. The other one, however, has pulled the same stunt at my house. Donna was very nice about it and hasn't fired me yet LOL. The dogs are very tired when they come home, leading me to believe they have a very good time with all the chihuahuas.

Donna is always amazing! Thanks for all you do for my NMDR baby!
Donna is amazing. She cared for Mylo with true compassion and I was able to enjoy a vacation. I will use her every time
Donna is absolutely FABULOUS. We booked her to watch our Fred for the weekend at the suggestion of multiple members of the Puppy Mill to Pet community, and we could not have been more impressed and grateful for the incredible job she did.

From the moment I emailed Donna inquire about her availability to being in touch to after we took Fred home, we were in constant communication. Donna is certainty trustworthy and conscientious, but what makes her truly "one in a million" is her special way with special needs dogs. Fred is a puppy mill survivor and Donna gained her trust faster than I could have imagined-- she even worked with Fred on being approached using a leash method-- it was a 2-for-1 deal: pet sitting and therapy!

We could not be happier and are thrilled to have found Donna. She won't be a well-kept secret for long, so book her ASAP!

Thank you so much to Donna for taking such great care of our dog, Stella, while we were away! This was our first time using DogVacay and she made it a great experience. Donna was so easy to work with from the start. Quick replies to questions or concerns we had. Very friendly and an obvious dog lover. She went out of her way to accommodate our schedule and was just so flexible with us. She also sent us texts with pictures and videos to keep us informed of how Stella was doing. We could relax and enjoy our time away knowing that Stella was in such good hands.
We will definitely be using Donna again in the future.

Donna is such a sweet person and so good with my dogs. Lexi requires eye drops on a daily basis and cleaning out the goo that builds up, when I picked them up, Lexi's eyes were clean and she seemed so content and tired when I took them home. Ed, the weird one, seemed pretty happy when I picked him up and has been sleeping since we got home--a very good sign. I got regular updates with pictures and I could tell that the kids were being well taken care of and that they were having a good time. I would highly recommend Donna and her crew of chihuahuas for doggy care!

Donna was great! She really helped me out me out. My usual sitter was going out of town and with less than 2 weeks until Christmas Donna was very accommodating. She is easily worth twice the price. My little Pom is a mill rescue and is rather timid. He got along great with the other pups and I was very comfortable leaving him. Which is huge because he is a special needs boy with occasional debilitating fear of certain men. Plato, my Pom, even seemed comfortable with her husband. She sent several photos each day's of my little man which just added an extra personal touch. It is obvious she cares about your dog like her own. Cannot say enough good things. We even did a meet and greet to make sure all the dogs got along well before the big day. I definitely found a new sitter.

Donna and her husband made my 2 dogs feel right at home. I received pictures daily and it was obvious that both of my dogs had no stress about being away from home. I would definitely choose Donna again when needing a place for my dogs to stay when out of town. Donna truly loves my pets as her own. Thanks again Donna!
