Do you love dogs? So does Mary Doane! Doane runs Mary's Dogs Rescue & Adoption and Mary's Dogs's Inn. Mary's Dogs Inn is currently bustling with 31 dogs in residence. Right now, the inn has a skiing special offering skiers, who are going on skiing trips, 15% off when they have their dogs stay at the inn.

Mary's Dogs Inn, located in rustic Northwood, New Hampshire, offers day and overnight care for dogs. At the inn, your dog will stay in a spacious antique home with lots of free roaming space and shaded outdoor areas, making them feel at home during their time away from home. Doane caters to dogs who may not be used to being away from home, giving them lots of love and patience. Older dogs and dogs who are recovering from surgery are welcome at Mary's Dogs Inn. A limited number of dogs can stay at the inn, ensuring that all the dogs in residence get all the undivided attention that they need. As a result, reservations are needed to ensure there is space available for your dog and that your dog can be accommodated at the inn.

In 2011, Doane launched Mary's Dogs Rescue & Adoption from her home. The rescue and adoption is a networking system to place dogs that are in high-kill shelters in the Southeastern US in perfect and loving home environments in the Northeast. Adopters of dogs through Mary's Dogs Rescue & Adoption relationship with Doane doesn't end with the adoption itself, which is typical at many places. Instead, Doane keeps in touch with the dogs that have been placed and helps the new owners with tips for their new family member ranging from training, grooming, diet, among other things.

Adapting a rescue dog allows existing dogs to find a new loving home for them to share with their adopters and is more sustainable, and humane, than purchasing a puppy from a puppy mill or a large chain store – reducing the need for pure bred puppies. Doane encourages the use of sustainable dog food, which is a much healthier option for your new loved family member.
