I love to dedicate some of my free time to volunteering at Main Line Animal Rescue. I’ve worked with dogs from Danes to Chihuahuas, puppies to seniors, blind, deaf, and different temperaments.

All the animals there deserve a forever home and some even a new start at life. I want them to be loved and feel loved. Also, I got a sweet tooth especially for gummy candy. Airhead rainbow strips, gummy worms, gummy bears… Serves as a little reward system for me.

Lifting in the gym has been a part of my routine for a while and it makes me feel empowered and strong. I want to further my learning in health and exercise physiology as it is a subject I enjoy.

"Abby is just amazing. We got a 9 week old puppy in May and she made the transition back to work seamless. I was so worried how he would do the first couple days and Abby took my worries away and updated me constantly on his progress. Now, she is one of his favorite people! Trusting someone with your fur child is definitely a big deal and I am so happy I trusted Abby with Dexter. So thank you Abby!!!!"


Michelle,

Dexter 



"I never have to worry about my canine kids when I go to work because I know that Lauren is going to visit them on time and with a whole lot of love. In fact, Teddy is usually way more excited to see her than he is to see me. I recommend Golden Leash to everyone who loves their furbabies, way more than the hit-n-miss service you can get from Rover."

"The Golden Leash has been a fantastic find! We were searching for new pet care a few times per week for our dog Teaghen. She has not been the easiest dog with people that she doesn’t know so I was a bit nervous. 

We first met Amanda as the primary walker and she was (is) great! Teaghen loves her and she is competent and thorough. When she went on vacation, we had Alex and again I was nervous about a new person. But because the company has a very complete inter working system of information, it was seamless and our dog has another new friend to care for her. Recently a new team member Cat has come to walk our dog and once again not a worry…she knew what to do and how to greet our dog.  I would highly recommend The Golden Leash and we plan to continue to use their services."       -Barbara & Teaghen
