Dear PrezParents, friends and family,

 

I’d like to let you know that I have made the difficult choice to close Presidential Pet Care, and as of  January 1, 2021 will no longer be providing pet care services. 

 

This was a bittersweet decision that I’ve wrestled with for quite some time. I’ve spent more than  7 years building the company and our exceptional team of Caregivers. Regrettably, the ongoing pandemic has negatively impacted the pet care industry and the ability to sustain myself and my team. 

 

The silver lining in this challenging time is that I’ve had the opportunity to explore another passion of mine. I’ve started a new venture working online with small business owners. I hope we can stay in touch as my entrepreneurial journey continues, and in case I can be of any service to you (or someone you may know with a small business!). 

 

It has been an honor and a privilege to serve you and your pets while building Presidential Pet Care and its team from the ground up. Everyone involved will always hold a special place in my heart. I hope we can stay in touch.

 

Best,

Lauren Heath
