My name is Lori Ball. I started this business in 1989 in Alpharetta, Georgia while attending college and working in a veterinarian office that included a kennel. I ran the kennel portion. I saw tons of animals who loved coming to us every season and I also saw pets who were completely miserable being there. I was asked a couple of times if we had anyone who did any pet sitting. I began taking care of a few pets, at the request of their owners, but I kept it very limited. Since that time my business has been growing.
I have been in the Trinity, Florida area for the past 14 years and have recently relocated to Tigard, OR. I am certified in pet CPR and First Aid. I am a member of Pet Sitters International, licensed and insured. I have been involved with all types of pets for over 30 years. I have owned rabbits, dogs, cats, hamsters and worked with horses. I know from years of experience that pets respond best to love and affection. Nothing has ever replaced petting!
I currently have 3 dogs at home. Murphy, aged 7, and Rosebell, aged 6, are both Border Collie/Australian Shepard mixes. Our newest addition, Ms Bella Boo, is a toy poodle who is full of spunk and turned one year old (February 2nd). Last, but not least, is 10 year old Molly. She is my snooty calico Maine Coon and all attitude. We adopted her from our veterinarian while living in Florida.
