Active Aging

Services Provided


Dogs in Motion:

We aim to provide flexible and personalized day-time dog walking services for seniors in the community of Mission. Our team of dog-loving and experienced walker’s offer senior dog owners with the extra hand that their pets require. Our volunteers will provide hour-long walk sessions on an arranged schedule that works for owners, up to two times per week. This service is ideal for seniors who are seeking individual dog walkers who can get to know their pets, rather than walking multiple dogs at once.

Program Services:

Exercise: For seniors and their dogs who are not able to go as far as they used to, even small daily walks can be an important part of a daily routine. Upon your initial meeting with your assigned dog-walking volunteer, you will identify with the volunteer any special needs or requirements of exercise for your pet. Some dogs may be young and youthful, requiring more rigorous exercise, and some may require a short-walk around the block. We will assess in collaboration with you what the needs of your pet are, and make those needs a priority on our walks.

Schedule: Our volunteers will work with you to develop a customized dog-walking schedule that works for you. Our hours of operation are between 8 am – 4 pm from Monday-Friday,  apart from holidays. Each of our volunteers can drive and will travel to meet with you at a previously arranged meeting time.

Company: Our volunteers have been carefully screened and selected by our team of professionals. We expect our volunteers to be able to socialize with your pet, as well as provide outstanding customer service to you. If you should require one of our volunteers to accompany you on walks with your own pet, we are happy to provide that service to you. Alternatively, we could walk your pet, while also walking with you!
