Hey everyone! My name is Mason, I was born and raised in Plymouth MA and have had dogs in my family as long as I have been alive.

Hey everyone, my name is Arlo. I spent most of my life in Oregon but moved to Boston about three years ago for a change of pace and I am really happy I did! I’ve always loved animals and spending time outdoors so walking dogs is something I really enjoy. I’ve had dogs of my own before so I understand the importance of providing the quality care you are looking for! Some of my main passions outside of animals are hiking, cooking, gardening, and environmental sustainability. I’m also a self-taught artist who enjoys drawing/painting and sculpting and have recently started making portraits of my friend’s pets for fun. Looking forward to having fun out there with those pups!

My name is Alysia Fortino, born and raised in Los Angeles. I love taking care of people and animals, it is a passion of mine which is why I’m going to school for nursing. I own three dogs, two in which were sheltered. Dogs have always been a part of my life, they aren’t just animals they are family or even children to some. I couldn’t be more thrilled to be apart of Elliot’s team, adding more loving pups as part of my family.
Hi my name is Keiana and I am a Cambridge and Boston native! I grew up with animals of all kinds. Cats, dogs and even small animals such as gerbils and goldfish! I have such a huge love for dogs in particular and wish I could adopt a houseful! I hope I can one day! Growing up I’ve had different breeds in my home such as a Pitbull for example. Every breed can show love! I currently have a French bulldog, who is 7 months old. His name is Loki and he is my absolute best friend. Loki goes with me everywhere. He is my little companion. Dogs really do help people, their presence is so therapeutic. I am so happy and excited to join the Elliot’s House crew and show my love for dogs and different animals through working here!
Katie grew up in an old farmhouse among dogs, cats, goats, and horses in the small town of
Princeton, MA. At Middlebury College in Vermont, Katie’s favorite course was “Animal
Behavior” followed closely by “Comparative Vertebrate Anatomy.” She is currently working
toward her pre-medical post-baccalaureate at Harvard University. As for hobbies, Katie loves a
good romantic movie, and she often tries to meditate, with varying degrees of success. Though
she loves all dogs, Katie especially appreciates the silly, high-endurance types, who help her
run farther, and remind her that the outdoors is a gift.

Andrew was born in Brookline and grew up in Orlando, Florida. He served in the U.S. Peace Corps in South Africa from 2011 to 2013. He brought back two dogs from his village, Maatla (left), which means “strong” in Sotho, and Chanda, a name he got from the movie “Life, Above All.” They are sweet, if high energy, dogs that are good for both running and cuddling with. Andrew has a degree in journalism from Elon University and has experience in photography, which he may use to take portraits of animals one day.

Hello, I’m a newcomer and just moved to Malden about a month ago. I grew up in CT but spent some years for school in Springfield and Salem MA. After Salem, I moved to Portland, OR and volunteered at the Oregon Humane Society where I received most of my training and experience working with dogs. Outside of that, I love reading, playing new games and baking bread.

Hi! I’m Allison, I’m 20 years old and I live in Lynn, MA. I love working with dogs and all types animals very much! I have a Jack Russell myself and a snake, a bearded dragon and two leopard geckos. My cousin’s dog Lucy (in my photo) has been my furry friend for about 4 years now. I have walked her, played with her and taken care of her every so often.

Front Desk/Daycare Attendant
I grew up with several dogs in my immediate and extended family, mostly strays and rescues. I don’t have one of my own yet due to frequent moves throughout my 20s, and as a result, I’ve turned into one of those people who points out any dog she sees. I love all dogs but have a special affinity for small breeds with big attitudes and big dogs who don’t understand their size. I’m looking forward to loving on the dogs at daycare and providing exceptional customer service for their “paw-rents.” When I’m not petting dogs, I enjoy knitting, science fiction, and public health advocacy.
