MEET THE OWNER AND THE TEAM

Carrie Eastwood is the owner of Love Your Pet. Born and raised in Ottawa, she pursued her education in Hamilton and Toronto. Carrie studied Chemical Engineering, Environmental Studies, and Health & Safety. She always felt that she wanted to be able to share her knowledge with consumers about how ingredients and processing affect quality. Today she sells only what she would feed her pets – or taste test herself!

Carrie began working at a small, independent pharmacy while still in high school. Her career in her twenties and thirties included indoor air quality, proofreading French translations, and organic food production. From food for humans, Carrie began to study pet nutrition and started working in a pet shop; practicing the art of matching dogs and cats with the best food for them. Carrie had the chance to see nearly every pet store in Eastern Ontario as the rep for Fromm Family Pet Foods. But Love Your Pet was her favourite. She knew she had lots to learn about fish and reptiles to be truly comfortable and so she partnered with the previous owner in 2016. After moving Love Your Pet to its current location, she is now proud to be the sole proprietor of a store that has been a part of Kemptville for over twenty years.

 

At home in Vernon, Carrie and Brian have four cats, three fish tanks, a Bernese/Retriever mix named “Bear” and a Husky/Malamute mix – “Mia” who acts as the store greeter when Carrie is working. Carrie and Brian were married in 2016 after five years together. He is the friendly face on mid-week mornings. Gwen, our grown-up adopted daughter was the inspiration for Carrie to start working closely with animals. She handles the store on Fridays and Mondays. You might also meet Braeden, our fish expert on weekday afternoons. Our former co-op student Aby and our friend Robert help with keeping the animals fed, happy and clean.

 

We think of our pets, staff, and customers as part of our big, happy family!
