Meet Our Team
Leanne Demus, Owner
I started It's Raining Cats & Dogs in 2008 when I was laid off from my corporate job. I had a 25-year career in marketing, advertising, and communications. With my work experience and my love and passion for animals, a friend suggested I start a pet sitting and dog walking business. I didn't know much about the industry, so I set off to research everything and anything having to do with pet sitting and dog walking. Although I very much enjoyed my career, I absolutely LOVE what I'm doing now! After all, I get to see happy, smiling faces and wagging tails many times throughout the day; what could be better than that?.
I currently have three cats, Viggo, Zeus, and Sierra, all rescues. I would love to have a dog or two, but unfortunately, I don't have space. Plus, since I'm gone most of the day and evening taking care of my client's pets, I would have to hire a dog walking company to take care of my dogs, For now, I'm very happy that I have wonderful, loving, and precious dogs as clients.
