pet sitter Kare

Kare moved to North Carolina after a 30 year long trek from California, where she grew up, with stops in Texas, North Carolina, and West Virginia. Always working for a non-profit Arts & Farm Coop, she took in an array of stray animals. Along with her local vets we performed animal rehabilitation and taught animal husbandry.
Kare has had the great pleasure of knowing dogs, cats, horses, goats, chickens, peacocks, sheep, birds & pigs and love all of them. Taking care of animals keeps her sane and she loves that she can have a job that doesn’t seem like work, and people can feel secure knowing their animals are well taken care of while they’re away. Kare has a 5 year old Bassett Hound, Leo, and a 2 year old Bloodhound, Ivy.

Pet Sitter Laurie G

Laurie G.

Laurie has always had a passion for animals. Her mom could tell you stories of Laurie as a little girl disappearing on dime store shopping trips only to be found in a trance somewhere between the mice and the fish tanks in the pet department. Turtles, mice, gerbils, guinea pigs, rats, fish, cats, dogs, and horses all came to live at the Gayle household at one time or other…thankfully not at the same time. Laurie has managed several horse farms and is currently the manager of a small farm in Wake Forest. Horses and dogs have always been her main focus in life, while pursuing other careers as well. Laurie has been an artist since the age of 2, at which time she declared her future occupation.

Laurie combines her training as an artist and her passion for animals by painting and drawing commissioned pet portraits in the old masters style. She challenges herself to capture the spirit as well as an exact likeness of each animal that she paints. Her goal is for her clients to have a portrait that they can look at long after their beloved pet has passed and help them keep the memories of their special bond. Visit Portraits by Laurie Gayle to see her exquisite artwork.

Laurie loves working for All Breed Care and will have her 10 year anniversary with the company in the Spring of 2016. She says it’s her dream job because she gets to be around animals all day, then go to the studio and paint them all night. Laurie continues to be horse crazy and always has a dog by her side. She is the barn manager at the Susan Lee Estate, which includes 3 rescued horses and Thomas the barn cat. She has two of her own Horses, Tater and Abby. Her own pack consists are 4 high energy dogs: Carrie, Katie, Puppers and Lil’ Buddy.

 Joi                         Joi and Sophie
Joi grew up having dogs as part of her family. Her family specifically loved cocker spaniels but Joi loved all animals since she was a child. Once in high school and convinced she wanted to be a veterinarian, she tried to nurse a baby bunny back to health after a blue jay attack. Now, she appreciates taking care of other people’s animals and longs to be a dog owner once again but only after her teenagers have left the nest. For now, they have an 11 year-old grey tabby named Beatrix they rescued.

Jackie is a volunteer and on the board of directors with Wildlife Welfare Inc. She is a licensed wildlife rehabilitator. She rescues orphaned squirrels, flying squirrels, rabbits and opossums. She also volunteers with Paws for Life Animal Rescue. She is a temporary and/or vacation foster mom.

Laura P.

Laura grew up loving animals and always had at least one dog and one cat, usually more, and assorted gerbils, hamsters, fish, ducks, bunnies and chicks. She volunteered with her father at a Sea Lion Rehabilitation facility in Laguna Beach as a child and went through vocational training to be a Vet Tech as a teenager. She has experience working for Vets, volunteering for a Hippo therapy program and the Franklin County Humane Society (now Paws for Life). Laura has made life-long friends who have the same crazy love for animals that she does, and loves getting unlimited doggie kisses and has even incorporated Animal Rescues and Charities into her Real Estate business. A percentage of her commission on every transaction goes to the dogs (so to speak, kitties get it too). Now, to get a break from the office she has decided to spend a few hours working with All Breed Care for yet more puppy love and kitty snuggles and it has been wonderful!

The first thing I wanted to become was a veterinarian. One of my favorite things to do is spend time with my dog, Molly, or at my grandmother’s house with her 2 dogs, 4 cats, 3 geckos, and one turtle. Outside of work and school, I jump at any opportunity to take care of others’ animals whether it’s friends, family, or neighbors. Being a part of All Breed Care makes me so excited and thankful for the opportunity to meet and take care of different animals.
