Corrie Lynn founded Pet Pastries in 2008 when an ill ferret needed her attention in monitoring all of his nutritional requirements. They gave Joey 6 months to live. She cooked and baked for him macrobiotically using whole organic foods and she transitioned every synthetic cleanser into natural ones - It gave him 2.5 more years. Soon she was doing the same for shelters, friends, family and even the local coffee shop dog. And now she is doing it for people with pets like you!
After almost a decade of providing macrobiotic dog food and pet services, Pet Pastries have had some additions to the pet services team. All three team members provide all of the various pet services. Corrie personally makes all the dog food and treats for all clients.
Corrie is certified in Holistic Care for Companion Animals and interned under a traditional allopathic veterinarian. Having grown up on a farm in Ohio, she always enjoys having animals around her. She grows to love the fur-kids she works with as if they were her own. They are family members and she will exceed expectations by providing exceptional care tailored just for them. She lives with her partner Jordan and their ferrets Parker, & Brady in Squirrel Hill. In her free time Corrie enjoys jumping out of planes with Skydive Pittsburgh.
Lauren was 2 when her family adopted their first dog, Sandy, who was not just a dog to her, but more like a sister. They were inseparable growing up and she realized how much she loved all dogs. Lauren worked in the veterinary field for about 4 years as an assistant and a receptionist. She also was the admin for a lost pets facebook page in NY where she grew up. She and her husband spent countless hours driving around searching for missing dogs in the area. Lauren and her husband have 2 dogs. Though Lauren enjoyed working in an animal hospital, many times pets come in and they are very sick and she decided it was time for a change. She joined the Pet Pastries team in the fall 2017 and is a great fit!
Rick studied to be a veterinary technician and was a long-time volunteer at the Pittsburgh Zoo for over a decade before joining Pet Pastries full time in 2015. He lives in Forest Hills with his four famous dogs Piper, Bandit, Onyx and Chico. You can follow their full adventures on instagram @pgh_walker88. Rick finds dog walking to be not a job, but a lifestyle. With a daily goal of reaching over 20,000 steps he looks forward to all the neighborhood walks, playgroups, and pet visits with his pets joining him on most walks. Rick is also the most talented at taking great dog photos of the pack!
