Hello fur parents! My name is Lori, and I’m originally from Virginia. After a decade in sunny Southern California, I moved to the Big Island in Hawaii. I have worked with a variety of animals in my career, including sea turtles, seals, dolphins, birds of prey, reptiles and, most importantly, dogs and cats! I rescued my heart dog, Ollie, from a Los Angeles shelter when he was eight weeks ago. I never knew how much this broken puppy would change my life! After I brought him home, I found out he was hit by a car and would require orthopedic surgery to have 9 screws and a plate inserted to repair a fractured leg. Luckily, he recovered fully, minus the function in his tail. It hangs like a fox and is purely decorative! I am also the proud mom of a senior cat that has flown across the world with me! I am so excited to come into your homes to take care of your critters when you are away. My experience working in animal training and veterinary clinics means that your family will be well cared for. Thanks for letting me give love to your animals!
