PurrBaby pets: Dog, cats, rabbit and rat


Warm greetings and welcome to PurrBaby Pet Care, LLC! My name is Lauren and I dearly love animals. I have an extra special place in my heart for senior and disabled pets.

I've been pet and house sitting for 5+ years which has included caring for dogs (my first love), cats (I'm obsessed), rabbits, and yes, rats (so cute!). I understand the way animals communicate and I take my time with getting to know them. It is important to me that animals feel comfortable and safe under my care. Having cared for elderly dogs and cats, I have experience medicating animals and catching warning signs that they aren't feeling well. I welcome you to read what clients have had to say about my services, here.

I am insured and a member of the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters as well as Pet Sitters International.

Some other details about me: I'm a Portland NET, master gardener, vegan, cyclist, Program Director at a non-profit, and I live in a tiny house within an intentional community. I'd love to nerd out with you about any of these things!

Questions? Please contact me here. I'm looking forward to meeting you and your furry friend(s)!

We always know that Lauren will love and care for them the same way we do when we're home. We want our fur babies to have the best care possible when we travel, that's why we always call on Lauren."  -BOB & KIM SCHWALB
