Laura’s Bio

 PETS ARE PEOPLE TOO A full service animal care company. We specialize in providing "Personalized care for your animals". All animal types serviced. I am Animal CPR and First Aid Certified and Insured and Bonded. I am a Registered Member of NAPPS -National Association of Professional Pet Sitters. I have spent a life time loving animals of all kinds. I have personally fostered or rescued over 100 animals of differing types during my life time. Thirteen of these animals have found a permanent home with me. Most of the animals that I have fostered or rescued have come from horrific circumstances and have needed physical and emotional healing.   Currently I have 15 pets that I call my own. I have a two year old Scottish Terrier named Pajamas, a rabbit named Blue, an Iguana , a Converse Parrot , a Green Headed Conure , a Ringed Neck Dove, A Cockateil, a Leopard Gecko, 4 different box turtles, a hinged wood turtle and an African Skink. This does not include my 4 fish tanks: 1 freshwater, 1 brackish water, 1 cold water and a salt water tank. Did I tell you I love animals?! I spent 23 years in retail management. Six of those years was spent as a manager for a major pet retailer. I have extensive knowledge in buying and selling a wide variety of birds, small animals, reptiles and fish. While managing the store I also oversaw a grooming shop and a dog training program. I have years of personal and professional experience in animal husbandry, nutrition, medicinal needs, training, socialization, breeding, product and brand name selection.  I decided in 2007 to start my own business. I had wanted to for years. My love of animals made animal care a perfect fit.  "Pets are People Too"  specializes in  "Personalized Care for your Animals" . Your "kids" become my "kids". My office is in Attleboro, MA but I am willing to travel an hour. I currently have clients from as far north as Needham, MA to as far south as Warwick, RI. Services include(but certaintly not limited to):walking, pet sitting( at your home or mine), pet taxi, pet errands, cage and kennel cleaning and animal waste removal. I am animal CPR and First Aid Certified. I am Insured and Bonded and am a Registered Member of NAPPS-National Association of Professional Pet Sitters. I hope you'll let me love and care for your animals the way they deserve. And I look forward to welcoming you and your pets into the Pets Are People Too "FAMILY"!

If we could give Laura 10 stars we would! She cared for our Golden Retriever when we were away for a week. She came by 3x/day, played with Shiloh, groomed him, and even provided training for him! She even went the extra mile to collect our mail, and sweep up the dog hair in the house. Shiloh was so tired and happy when we got home. We highly recommend Laura and would be happy to provide a phone recommendation if you would like further information.

I have hired Laura 3 times now, and have been very pleased with each experience. She is accommodating, professional, and dependable, and I love that she leaves me a little summary of her visit--just so I can be sure everything went okay with my dog. I'm also impressed by the variety of animals she cares for!

Laura pet-sat for our 2 dogs and cat while we were on vacation for 2 weeks. Not only did she go the extra mile taking care of our kids, buying them new toys and bringing over her own radio so they wouldn't get lonesome, she also kept my garden alive and thriving during some very hot days. I know the pets love her because they got SO excited when they saw her car pull up in the driveway, and immediately jumped into her arms when she opened the door. I would highly recommend Laura, and we feel very lucky to have found her. Our trips are much more relaxing knowing the kids at home are in such good hands. - Robin H.

Laura has been walking our 2 dogs for a month now and we are very happy with her work! The dogs are at ease with her, which is not a given since they are rescues and are wary of new people. Laura is calm and easy going with the dogs. Laura is reliable and responsible. We feel very lucky that we have found Laura to care for our dogs!
