"Leslie's deep and abiding love for animals is always evident in her gentle, loving approach. She truly cherishes those under her care as if they were her own, and has become best friends with our own best friend."

Who We Are

I'm Leslie Holmes, pet care provider and owner of Follow The Animals. I grew up with animals and have loved them all my life. My family always had some combination of dogs, cats, birds, hamsters, and even a goat!  My mother was a great example to me as a passionate animal advocate. When I was a kid, she and a friend worked to help get animals adopted out of the local animal shelter. Spending their own money, they placed advertisements each week in the local paper, and took in animals that were slated to be euthanized, giving them more time to find them good homes. Her work to save animals left an indelible mark with me, and I've been a passionate advocate for animals ever since.

I've always had my own pets to care for, and I currently have two cats (brothers named Calven and Milo) whom I absolutely adore. However, since I began a career of working with animals on a daily basis, caring for my fur-clients has given my life meaning beyond measure, and I'm rarely happier than when I'm surrounded by animals. I find myself in their company nearly 24/7 these days, and I wouldn't have it any other way. I feel incredibly grateful to have stumbled into this current life of mine, and I'm forever thankful to my clients for trusting me to help care for their precious fur kids.
