Tricia and Renee
We are recently married, 30-something Oregon transplants. One thing we both have in common and love about the place we live is the degree of pet friendliness. We have been passionate about animals our whole lives, and have two cats of our own at home, Katie and Shady.
We both have worked for a long time in people serving settings. Tricia has a B.S. in Psychology and an M.A. in Counseling, and worked in the field for several years. Renee has been a manager in the retail industry for almost 15 years. Although we both love people, we have both burned out in our respective fields. What we really needed was the unconditional love and fun of working with animals.
Tricia had many years of experience working with animals in her past, from owning her own pets, working at a boarding kennel and pet sitting for people in the community. So she established Tricia's Loving Care in 2011. Renee, while still working in retail, provided a lot of help with dog walking and pet sitting during overflow, and recently decided to come on as Tricia's partner full time. We enjoy working as a team, which allows us to offer more flexibility and availability for our clients' pet care needs.
