Our Story

As a lifelong pet owner and a working professional, I always felt guilty leaving my pets home alone all day with no interaction or exercise. Even when I traveled, it was difficult to find a reliable, trustworthy person to care for my furry companions. There weren’t too many options in the McHenry County area that met my pet care needs. In 2009 I left the corporate world to embark on a new adventure by opening my first pet sitting and dog walking business which has evolved into who we are today. With a lot of sweat, tears, muddy paws and drool, Love Bug Pet Care became a reality and a dream come true.

Our Team

We know how hard it is to leave your pet in another’s care. That’s why we built our company foundation on trust and honestly, above all else. This begins with our professional team. We carefully vet each of our team members with thorough background checks, require at least one year of prior pet care experience and complete a thorough training process on emergency policies and procedures. Your furry friend will always get his or her own dedicated pet care specialist, as we believe consistency is crucial to a pet’s well-being.

Your peace of mind is our top priority, and that’s reflected in the quality of our customer service, rigorous hiring practices and flexible scheduling- not to mention our sincere desire to shower your pet with unconditional love. Because they deserve it!

Patti

Pet Care Professional

Hi, I am Patti. I am a longtime resident of Johnsburg and have been a Professional Animal Care Provider since 2013. My kinship with animals was apparent at the age of 3 with my first kitty Smokey. My Love for all animals has grown and deepened as I have volunteered throughout my life at countless farms, sanctuary’s and rescue ranches. I regularly educate and update myself by attending animal wellbeing workshops. I have also had the great privilege to assist families transition their new shelter animals into their forever homes. Working in close communication with my clients and consistency with the animals has brought great success and joy. All my kitties have been rescues with one being a feral adult and I’m happy to say we became best of friends. What I really think is wonderful about Love Bug Pet Care is their policy to have a “Meet & Greet” with all our new clients. Safety & Fun are my priorities for all my animal friends.

Lorrie

Pet Care Professional

Hi! My name is Lorrie Stone. I live with my husband and 4-legged baby, Jade, in Volo, IL. I have been an animal lover forever. I’ve always had something furry to take care of & love. My main goal as a pet sitter, is to make my clients feel safe & secure leaving their “children” in my care. I enjoy making sure they are comfy & happy while I’m around. During my spare time, if I’m not hanging out with my friends & family, then you’ll probably find me @ the dog park with Jade. I truly enjoy being a pet sitter. It is such a rewarding experience for me. I hope to be able to care for your baby one day.
