Lori Genstein, Owner/Pet Care Provider of I’ve Got the ‘Scoop’!, LLC, grew up with an adorable dog named Sugie, Tommy the Turtle, and, at times, a bird or hamster. Experiencing the passing of her daughter, Jocelyn, and having another child with signiﬁcant special needs, Lori is no stranger to adversity or seeking out the positive in every situation. When her son became ill, requiring nursing care, the most challenging aspect was ﬁnding a compassionate, dependable nurse, one whom Lori trusted, and was respectful of her wishes for her child.
That’s when Lori’s love and unique ability to connect with animals transitioned from volunteering, advocating, and fundraising for homeless animals, to I’ve Got the ‘Scoop’!, LLC; providing Pet Love, Enrichment, and Care for her “furry babies” as Lori refers to them, with respect, compassion, and patience, as she hopes a nurse has for her son. Soon after, pet parents began referring friends and family, veterinarians referred clients, as did various pet professionals, and animal rescues trust her with their adopted loves.
Lori serves as a resource to pet parents, assisting them in becoming more conﬁdent and relaxed, and enjoying their pets; enlightening parents to the importance of preventative care, and raising awareness to safety and pet-related hazards.
Lori is certiﬁed in Pet First Aid / CPR by the American Red Cross, is a member of Burlington CART (County Animal Response Team), and Burlington CERT (County Emergency Response Team.) She actively raises money to donate FIDO Bags to local ﬁre departments through the Fetch Foundation.
Lori’s concentration is beloved pets with special needs, and her success is attributed to exceptional patience and compassion. Lori resides in Palmyra, NJ with her wonderful ﬁance’, Daniel; delightful son, Billy; and her own extremely special kitty, Simon’.
