Lori "I am living in Twin Lakes with my two chihuahuas. (Pink is Millie and black is buddy). I love working for this company and meeting new people and pets. So glad that I was able to get this job. Millie is a Japanese chin / chihuahua. She is a crazy dog who loves to run! The only dog who acts cat like! She is full of energy right when I wake up to when I go to bed. Love my silly Millie. My little man Buddy is a mix of some chihuahua. He is a rescue pup. He was 5 when I got him and will turn 9 this fall! So glad I was able to save him 5 hours before being put down. I love my lil' man. I am a graduate from GTC Keno of Horticulture. I am the horticulture technician at breezy hill. My passion is plants and animals. That is definitely the best two combinations. I hope someday to own a small dog rescue."

Debbie "Hello! I'm Debbie. I'm in Kenosha and I started working for Kenosha Pet Sitter over this past summer. I grew up in Connecticut with a house filled with animals - cats, dogs, fish, turtles, lizards, hermit crabs, hamsters, a floppy-eared bunny named Parker - and a yard filled with rescued-then-released wild animals. I volunteered and worked at the Beardsley Zoo for 13 years, while also working at farms, horse events, pet sitting and taking zoo and domestic animals to schools and nursing homes for teaching and comfort therapy. I have a beautiful 5-year-old Sheltie named Xero, two adorable rats, a tuxedo cat named Loki and a tank full of fish. For me, there is no greater compliment than having a dog run up to you and give you its love, and no happier moment than when you can be kind to any animal."
