About kate

16 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi there!
My name is Kate and I am the proud "mama" currently to a 2 year old "failed foster" named "Saint" Petey and a senior kitty named Bama. That said, I ask that all of Petey's potential friends who want to stay and play at our house first meet Bama.

We have a large doggie door so pups (and cats) come and go as they please however, the fence is a standard chain link so if your pup is part gazelle, that may be a problem. Petey and I like to take trips to dog parks and beaches on occasion so if your pup is socialized and you are comfortable with this, they can come along. Otherwise, we'll just play at home and go for pack walks in nearby parks.

As far as experience, I am a former military K-9 handler and have fostered for several rescue organizations off and on over the years (with a soft spot for GSDs and Pits :) I prefer to take in dogs that do not have major aggression issues for insurance liability reasons but will evaluate on a case by case basis.

I also have extensive experience caring for elderly and sick dogs and cats so I can administer oral as well as injected medication (and am patient when dealing with incontinence).

Currently, I am a full time college student with a majority of my courses online so I'm home most of the day now so the Fur won't be lonely :)

I currently have a friend renting out the back apartment however, he is rarely home. Although when he is, he's very much an animal lover.

Any other questions, dont hesitate to ask!

Kate (and Petey) did a great job taking care of our pups. Petey was a fantastic dog host and made sure there was ample playtime. Kate was really attentive and kind enough to pick tons of stickers off of my Havanese Stevie after walking through the tall grass. She also bathed our lab Chippy after he rolled in the mud. I was grateful she was willing to go above and beyond for them. What was most surprising is that Chippy didn't seem to want to go home! It is a great feeling to know that your dogs are in great hands! Thank you Kate!
