Laura (pictured with her GSD/Mal Ranger) was born into a animal-loving family and grew up caring for a large variety of pets from hamsters to horses.
Through pursuing a technical writing career, her love of animals never waned and she often cared for pets of friends and co-workers.
When her girls (Annie and Caroline) were young, as a family, they dove into rescue and foster care for shepherds, special needs dogs, cats and horses. Laura took on regular pet sitting to off-set the costs associated with rescue and foster care. Annie and Caroline were usually in-tow or took the neighborhood jobs to earn money and gain experience.
Laura currently resides in Pecos and frequently enjoys long horse rides in the wilderness. She has been fortunate to be able to move her career towards a small business owner and high quality service provider.
Laura specializes in complicated situations and animals with special needs, elderly pets, exotics, livestock, and professional barns / boarding / training facilities. Laura is also in charge of high profile clients and high value homes.
Laura is available for a limited number of clients.
Furry God Mother
Caroline (pictured with her rescued horse Scooter) is a natural animal person. She has always melded into any animal environment in an animal-whispering type of way.
Caroline has also been involved in Girl Scouts and our troops animal endeavors. She started riding horses at age 11 and quickly fell in love. She joined the United States Pony Club, Los Alamos and Santa Fe chapters, where she learned all about horse care and safety.
At age 14 years she adopted a former race horse from The Horse Shelter and (with the help of many generous trainers) turned him into an amazing eventing horse.
As Caroline and Scooter needed more training, she began working at barns and for trainers to help off-set the costs. She worked many full summers (dawn til dusk) as a working student, continued training, working and competing during the her high school years. She worked at many barns including Goose Downs Farm, Sky Bound Farm and Loal Tucker Horsemanship where she transitioned into western ranch riding and competition.
Needless to say, Caroline gained a huge amount of horse care and health knowledge including first aid, training, hauling and showing. She is very independent, responsible and insightful and makes a great horse-sitter (she is happy to do over-nights).
Through her new career pursuits, Caroline has as a professional dog groomer, cat care and emergency animal care. She is available for a variety of visits or overnights in the Albuquerque, Santa Fe and Los Alamos Areas.
