About Laurie

Pets are my passion...since as far back as I can remember I have been surrounded by animals-whether covered in fur, feathers, scales, or any combination of the above. I have always lived with at least one dog; a maximum of three but an average of two dogs. They were always a treasured part of my family. In fact, dogs are my favorite people! My heart connects deeply to their souls and caring for them is as natural to me as breathing. I have advocated for animals (including being a vegan) and for their just treatment since childhood. I volunteered at shelters, vet clinics, did a co-op placement at a pet shop and canvassed for the Toronto Humane Society. I am loving, honest and respectful to all living beings and caring for pets is a natural calling for me... I love the great outdoors and walking dogs of all shapes and sizes is one of my favorite pastimes! Skills: Personal/ professional experience- Dogs (puppies to seniors) Cats Rabbits Guinea pigs Hamsters Gerbils Mice Birds-Moluccan and Goffin’s cockatoo, Senegal parrots, parakeets, cockatiels and lovebirds. Lizards Fish Frogs I have administered all oral medications as well as having experience with medical conditions such as seizures. Nail clipping of small animals Treated impacted Guinea pigs Certified in Pet First Aid by St. John Ambulance and have an up-to-date criminal and vulnerable sector check.

Laurie was perfect!. We needed someone to look after our large, anti-social dog and were worried that he would be too much for anyone. When I met Laurie, I knew it would work out as she really understood what we needed, and was so good with Topo.. We were able to leave our dog and not worry about a thing - we knew he was getting fantastic care and getting the updates from Laurie was a great bonus. After 30 years of dog ownership, this is the first time we left him with someone other than family and it turned out so well. I would not hesitate to have Laurie look after Topo again - it was a great experience.

We were lucky enough to have Laurie help us watch our two cats on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. She was quick to reply and eager to help on such short notice. Her professionalism and friendly demeanour was comforting and she was very confident in handling our boys (even with one of them being quite skittish). She also sent us a few photos showing our cats relaxed and went the extra mile in waiting outside our house while I gave her the correct key code after giving her the incorrect one!

Thank you Laurie for being so kind, caring and helpful!
