Pet Gal Kona

team member

Hi, I’m Lorie and I’m so thankful to now be part of the Kona Pet Gal team! I recently retired from 30 years in law enforcement in Los Angeles, CA and moved to Kona to enjoy an entirely different environment and pace. I have always loved and had many animals in my care, so I couldn’t think of a better way to spend my time here.

I grew up in California, Virginia, and Pennsylvania where my four siblings and I had the opportunity to love and care for horses, dogs, cats, birds, reptiles, hamsters, bunnies….you name it, we brought it home and cared for it. Thankfully, my twins carried on that same tradition through my adult life as well. We had a horse, dogs, cats, rats, a snake, and a toad, to name a few. A family is not quite complete without critters to love and be loved by.

My current family critter is my Malti-poo Nacho. Described more accurately as a sentient teddy bear, lol. He’s loving his new home in paradise as much as we are!

I consider it a privilege and a joy to be able to look after and care for your furry family members as part of the Pet Gal team. I hope to be able to relieve you of some of the stress of leaving them behind as you go off to work or away on vacation.
