About Kevin

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a retired teacher with a nice small 2 bedroom house with a completely secure and fenced in backyard. I live in Vancouver right off of the 39th Street exit on I-5. I taught special Ed for a few years and find that kids with special needs and dogs with special needs are very similar. They require patience, flexibility, and kindness.
I have had two dogs for about 15 years each in my life. I also had a cat for 15 years. I recently adopted my eighth foster I have had in the past 3 years. She is blind and only has six teeth and according to the adoption counselor at the Humane Society, "blossomed under my care." Her name is Cassie and she originally was afraid to leave her crate; now she explores new environments with curiosity and courage.
The shortest time I fostered a dog was 4 days; the longest was 11 months. The foster dogs ranged from recovery from surgery, recovering from wounds gotten by a dog fight, dogs with food aggression, leash training, and housebreaking. These were dogs that needed a safe and loving home to recover from trauma.
I am often home writing so the dog (s) will get a lot of attention from me. I love to play ball, give belly rubs, and give them a lot of care and love.
Due the size of my house and yard, I prefer dogs 30lbs. or less. Well trained and well behaved larger dogs considered.

Sara is our wonderful, playful, very gentle dog that is a bit of a foodie. She will eat anything within reach. Kevin knew this and put all food items out of the reach for a dog her size. She has a very keen interest in food and is willing to try to get to it however possible. Kevin made adjustments and put up barriers and did it with a sense of humor and patience. Thank you Kevin!

Kevin became a foster for the Humane Society for Southwest Washington in 2013. He has fostered eight dogs so far and has done a remarkable job with some very difficult dogs. Here at the Humane Society we appreciate the hard work and dedication he has put forth into helping our dogs become ready for their "forever homes."

Kevin has cared for our pets several times while our family was on vacation. The animals were well loved and well cared for. He is a good hearted and caring person and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.

Kevin took great care of our little Yorkie! This was our first time using DogVacay with her and I wasn't sure how she'd react. I believe she had a very nice, fun, restful time with Kevin and his little dog Cassie. I would take Olive back to Kevin in a heartbeat!

Kevin's compassion for dogs shines through! We have a dog with back issues and Kevin was more than willing to take Parker in and be mindful of his limitations. So thankful we found Kevin and have already booked another stay!
Kevin did a great job taking care of our 2 basset hounds. They both eat a raw food diet which is a lot of work to set up and takes room in the fridge and freezer and requires washing of bowls. One of our dogs takes a lot of medicine daily and he handled it with ease. He played with them outside or would walk them daily. His own little dog is very sweet and there weren't any issues between the dogs. If we need care in the future we will definitely use Kevin.
