About Joanna

Greetings!

My name is Joanna Goodman and my husband, Dan, and I are currently in the process of opening an animal rescue in North Texas. We are using this site to generate the funds for the facilities, equipment, and supplies.


We have 7 dogs, 4 cats, 2 rabbits and a few sugar gliders and our animals all get along with every creature! We have been petsitting for almost 10 years now and our "customers" always tell us that their pets are somewhat sad when they leave because all of the fun they had on our "farm."

We do every kind of pet boarding you can think of- dogs, cats, birds, exotics, fish, reptiles, and many more. I am a stay-at-home petsitter, so this is what I do full-time! We also have an on-call vet and I can provide any additional services your pet needs (medications, walks, playtime, etc.) with no hidden fees (no nickel-and-diming!). I am also getting back into dog grooming and offer select grooming services as well (bathing, ear cleaning, nail clipping, regular grooming, etc).

Jack had an awesome time. Lots of room and lots of friends to play with.
Bodhi had a great time at Joanna's. She was very accommodating with our travel schedule and kept me updated with pictures while we were gone. She made me very comfortable with leaving Bodhi with her.
Atlas had a great time, he wouldn't eat the food from home but they mixed in their food and he ate well. Joanna was flexible when we needed to add another night.
This is now the 5th time that my dogs have stayed with Joanna. I cannot say enough good things about our experience. We will without a doubt continue to send our pups to her anytime we are away. We know they are loved and cared for just like family.
Lots of dogs when I dropped him off but they gradually made introductions. My dog seemed happy and exhausted when I picked him up. So no complaints.
Joanna and her husband were great hosts for our dogs. Our dogs were initially overwhelmed by the number of dogs giddy to meet them when we first visited, but as both my dogs have been well socialized, they very quickly found their place in the pack. Joanna provided regular updates and returned our dogs clean and brushed out. Their backyard is very securely fence with tons of space for the dogs to run. Joanna even brought their beds into their bedroom at night, so that they could snooze with the whole gang. They were definitely a little exhausted after 4 days with so much stimulation, but knowing how much Joanna cares for her animals left me with 100% confidence that my pups received plenty of attention. We would be happy to let our dogs stay with them again.

I feel like I have a very needy dog and usually he is never happy with where we leave him when we go on vacation, but not this time. He had a blast with the other dogs and was very well taken care of. I have a huge hairy dog and I'm sure they brushed him like 10 times to help him while he was shedding. I was able to be on vacation and not have to worry about my dog the whole time like I usually do, they sent pictures of him that showed me he was having a good time. I live an hour away and would drive two hours if I had to. Very happy with our dogs stay there.

My dog Alice had the best time ever. Joanna and Dan took great care of my dog. They made me feel at ease to know that Alice was taken care of while we went out of state for a week. I definitely recommend them to anybody to take care of your pets.
