Lori Bastien/Owner

Meet Lori, Owner and creator of Naples Peaceful Pets. She sets a quality standard of professional and compassionate care for her clients whether they are fur, feather and or other. Her passion and dedication for animals started in her youth, living in Central Michigan, she grew up with dogs, cats, rabbits and multiple rescues. This love continued as a teenager where she worked part-time with a local dog groomer, kennel owner and breeder. Later, she moved to and raised her children in south central Wisconsin, continuing with her love and passion for animals. There was never a dull moment with two kids, several fur babies and multiple rescues. She had an open door policy for all who graced her doorstep. Her love for animals, led her to begin her own business with the ideals of ‘Loving and Compassionate care for all’. Lori has dedicated her time to the hands-on care of her pet-clients and creating a business built on Peace, Trust, Integrity, Respect, Compassion, and most importantly Love.

Loving Team Member Michele is a transplant from CT. Her love of animals began when she was a little girl. Her friends and relatives had dogs, cats, rabbits, ducks, fish and more—and she helped care for them. As an adult, she began quickly adding to her pet family. Under her roof (and rules), have been an assortment of dogs, cats, fish, toads, guinea pigs—the latest love is GG her cream Golden Retriever (see photo).

Since retiring from corporate life, Michele has the time to pursue her passion of animals and their care. She enjoys meeting new pet friends and helping them while their owners cannot.
