About Us

Pet Care LA (formerly Animal House Pet Care) was founded by Laurel Corcoran back in 2004 when Laurel noticed a growing need for quality pet sitting and dog walking in Los Angeles. Laurel passed the baton to a long-time associate of Pet Care LA, Victoria Stewart, who became the new owner and manager of in 2016.

Victoria Stewart has always been an animal lover. Growing up in NYC, Victoria shared the family apartment with a colorful menagerie of pets that formed the foundation of her deep connection to animals. Victoria grew that passion into a career, where she managed a large well-respected animal hospital in Los Angeles. She handled day-to-day operations, supervised employees, and ensured clients and their animals received the best care possible. 

In 2008 Victoria joined the Pet Care LA team and has loved every minute of it! Each day she is reminded of her good fortune… to have a career dedicated to the happiness and well-being of her clients’ beloved pets. 

Victoria is a strong advocate for adopting rescue animals and supports the Northeast Animal Shelter, Best Friends, and the World Wildlife Fund. She currently lives with the rescued feline comedy team of Lucy and Nanook. The demanding duo keeps her on her toes (and her wood floor a bit furry) but she wouldn’t have it any other way. 

Pet Care LA continues the tradition of reliable, high quality dog walking and pet sitting services for your furry 'and feathered' family members just as it has for the past 13 years... because life is just sweeter with pets.
