About Katherine

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have 15 years working with animals professionally, and have been around them all my life. I am currently a staff member at Secondhand Hounds Animal Rescue, where I coordinate the Hope program, which provides companion animal visits to seniors and other vulnerable people. I also foster animals for them, as well as volunteer at their office location regularly. I have also worked for multiple animal boarding facilities. I have experience with dogs of all sizes, breeds and temperaments, including many special needs animals. Most of my work is done from home, so my schedule is extremely flexible. I own 4 animals, and often have 1 or 2 (or 3, 4 or 5) fosters, so my house is set up to be as animal friendly as possible, including the recent purchase of a Furbo, so I can keep an eye on the animals when I can't be home! I live in a large ground floor apartment with easy and close access to potty areas, residential areas for walking, and both on- and off-leash parks. In addition to dog walking, pet boarding, and drop-in visits, I can provide an array of miscellaneous services, including bringing your animals to the vet or groomer, nail trims, ear cleaning and light grooming, and basically any other need your pets may have! Any dog coming into my home does need to be cat friendly. I can separate them for short periods of time, but long-term separation is not an option. Another thing to note is that my entire home has wood floors, but no stairs.

Katherine was a wonderful caregiver for my big furfamily! I have 2 dogs, 2 cats and Guinea Pig. She was experienced in caring for all of them. She was very responsive when I requested her services. Katherine also updated me with pictures and adorable stories throughout my time away. I am so happy I found Katherine!
