I have been involved with animal rescue, welfare and rights my whole life. I am a long time vegetarian and currently volunteer at Animal Rescue New Orleans every Wednesday from 9am-2pm. My 2 dogs were adopted from the LASPCA 15 years ago and 3 cats are all rescues. My Pumpkin Kitty is a Katrina rescue. What a story there! I own my home and know my neighbors, many of whom I pet sit for when they are out of town.
I am a licensed Tour Guide in New Orleans, I have been background checked, fingerprinted and drug tested which are requirements to be a Tour Guide in New Orleans! I am gone from the house just a few hours a day and days I don't have tours I am home all day. My schedule varies week to week. I will be happy to share great places to visit, things to do and restaurants that are a must. There is a lot to do and see in New Orleans. I have maps, brochures and info at the house that I will share with you to make your visit to my wonderful city a great one. All this and your will know that your beloved dog will be lovingly cared for!
I am also a drummer in a Jazz Band so away from the home 2-4 hours when I have gigs. I have a regular Sunday Jazz Brunch from 11am-2pm, so dogs could not be dropped off or picked up during these times. My son lives 3 houses down from me with my grand-dog Dexter, so arrangements can be made if he is available. I live in the Uptown area 6 blocks from the St. Charles Streetcar line which can be taken to the French Quarter. Really nice "hood", great area for dog walking and Palmer Park is just a few blocks away.
I require that all dogs be neutered, chipped and or tagged. I will have a tag with my information that will be put on your dog while he or she is at my home. Can't have too many tags is my motto! Dogs will sleep on my bed if they want to or dog bed on floor. They will stay inside and will go on supervised walks. My backyard is fenced and I am out in my Tropical Paradise a lot, so they will go out when I am out there.
The photo is one of me Fat's Domino and Al Carnival Time Johnson for those who did not recognize "The Fat Man". He is not fat at all as you can see!
So, if you are considering a trip to the Crescent City, you have made a great choice for a vacation and I will be happy to take great care of your furry member of the family.
