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!
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 ferret Brady in Squirrel Hill. In her free time Corrie enjoys jumping out of planes with Skydive Pittsburgh.
After almost a decade of providing macrobiotic dog food and pet services, Pet Pastries have had some additions to the pet services team. All four team members provide all of the various pet services. Corrie personally makes all the dog food and treats for all clients.
As, Corrie’s sister, Sam has watched Corrie blossom in her development as a Holistic Pet Expert. A retired social worker, Sam is by nature, an aficionado of being able to handle all types of situations under pressure. After years in the social work field, Sam needed a change in order to pursue her passions. She loves to be active, be outdoors, and is now able to combine that with her love of animals. Sam has a big heart for rescuing pets and giving those pets a better life. She has experience in Wilderness survival, caring for disabled pets, and even participated in “Dock Dog’s” for a short time with her late fur baby, Jain. She is a transplant to Pittsburgh, and has felt right at home since her move here almost 10 years ago.
