Hi! I am an animal shelter and behavior professional. If you're looking to adopt a dog but are daunted by the process, let me be your matchmaker! With my extensive experience in canine behavior and sheltering, I can help you navigate listings and animal shelter jargon and adoption policies, provide accurate breed (when possible) and age information, and advise you on behavior, in order to help you find a dog who's likely to be a good match for your home, lifestyle, and preferences.

I offer a range of services and pricing, with a $30 minimum:
$30/week for remote research and assistance: I will search rescue and shelter listings and policies and provide you with potential matches based on your preferences. If desired, I will also provide feedback on potential matches you have found.
$90/week for solo on-site services: I will visit shelters to meet and provide feedback on potential matches you've provided or approved.
$110/week for joint on-site shelter services or on-site rescue services: I will accompany you to visit potential matches at shelter and/or travel with you or solo to met potential rescue matches.
Services are generally available throughout Washington DC and adjacent areas in Northern Virginia and Maryland. Remote searches may include a larger area; limited on-site services may be available at greater distances on a case-by-case basis, and for an additional fee.
*Please note, I am unable to provide matching services for those whose housing does not permit dogs or for those intending to train a dog in a discipline which typically utilizes coercion-based training methods.
I look forward to helping you find your next best friend!
