Lee Turner
Owner Creature Care Services

Hi, my name is Lee Turner. I am deeply passionate about animal care and welfare. I have volunteered at both the Austin Wildlife Rescue and APA! (Austin Pets Alive). The pets that I have had the pleasure of loving and caring for over the years include dogs, cats, fish, parrots, ferrets, a rabbit, goats, and a pot belly pig!  I am certified in Pet CPR and First Aid through PetTech, a member of both NAPPS and PSI, and am licensed, bonded and insured. 

I am a native Floridian and moved to Texas seven years ago after meeting my husband, Steve, on eHarmony. I have an 18-year-old daughter whom I adopted from China in 1998, and two step-daughters.

I have a BA in Special Education though most of my work background is in Social Services as a Case Manager. But all that time I always dreamed of being able to work with animals as a career, and now my dream has finally come true!

In my spare time I love to read (both fiction and non-fiction) and also consider myself an amateur writer.

We presently have two dogs, Star and Rascal. We originally got Star, a Great Pyrenees, to guard our two goats at the time, but she eventually became an inside dog (too much fur for this Texas heat!). Rascal is a smallish mutt we adopted from a family who could no longer care for him. In addition to these two, we also have 6 cats (Abby, Suzzy, Henry, Boo, Penelope, and Zoe), 2 ferrets (Starflight and Shanti), and 2 parrots (Pickle and Carlos).

I SO look forward to meeting you and your pet(s) and giving them exceptional, loving care.
