Lori has lived in Eugene most of her life. She now resides in Eugene with her husband and their two children. She volunteered for years at the Child Advocacy Center for the District Attorney's office helping abused children. Now her time is devoted to helping homeless animals find homes which has always been where her heart lies. She also volunteers at LCAS and fosters animals when time permits. Her main purpose for founding Save the Pets was to eventually open an animal adoption center for homeless and abandoned pets.
