About our Team

We love animals. We love them so much that we want to snuggle and play with as many furry (or feathered, scaly, or gilled!) friends as we can. But since we can’t live with them all, we had to think of a different way to spread the love.


You won’t find a more dedicated group to take care of your family member. Whether you need someone to walk your dog while you’re at work, take care of your pals while you’re on vacation, or someone to snuggle with your cat, we’re the pet sitters 4 U. 


With a combined 30 years of experience on our team, there’s no other sitter your pet will be safer, happier, or have more fun with—guaranteed.


Lori Bertrand

Lori's love for animals began at an early age. As a child, she always had a furry friend by her side. As an adult, she transferred that love to a career where she could truly make a difference for animals.

She served as president of the Salem Animal Rescue League of NH (SARL) for 11 years. During that time she led the organization in finding safe and happy homes for hundreds of animals every year. She developed the SARL Transport and Foster Program, which continues to save lives today.


Simultaneously, Lori served as treasurer and board member in the NH Federation of Organizations. She marched at the capital in support of several animal bills and worked behind the scenes on numerous cruelty and neglect cases.


In 2011, after a frantic search for a lost transport dog, Lori identified a need for an organization dedicated to missing pets. She co-founded the non-profit group Granite State Dog Recovery. This group is now the "go to" organization in New Hampshire to locate lost dogs. In 2015, Lori co-created a Massachusetts-based group, Missing Dogs Massachusetts, to continue that work across the border.


In recognition of her efforts, Governor John Lynch in 2009 awarded Lori the Spirit of NH Volunteer Award during a state house ceremony.

Lisa Burdin

Lisa was born to care for animals. As a child, she forever had tiny animals in her hands. She has loved and housed many of her own pets but always had room for an extra "border or two." 


Lisa volunteered at the Salem Animal Rescue League for over 10 years, and opened her home as a foster to numerous kittens and puppies. She finds joy in fostering, and even more joy in finding permanent homes for her charges.


As a key volunteer in animal fundraising efforts, she contributes to the never-ending needs of the rescue community.  

Previously, Lisa worked in a doggie daycare/ kennel environment where she was responsible for 5-20 dogs at a time.


She is certified in pet CPR, and prides herself on her unwavering dedication to her clients--four-legged, feathered, or otherwise.
