Hi, I'm Lynzie Northrup. I am a Veterinary Technician and the owner of Complete Critter Care. Ever since I was a little girl, I loved animals. I grew up with cats, gerbils, guinea pigs, hamsters, anoles, geckos and fish, and pet sat other people’s pets. In fact, I dreamt that one day I could work (and play) with all types of animals, including wildlife. So when the opportunity came for me to be able to study and work with animals, I enrolled in the Veterinary Technology program at Bergen Community College in NJ where I earned an AAS degree in Veterinary Technology.
After relocating to Holly Springs, NC from NJ, I applied to the Duke Lemur Center Technician Assistant program in Durham where I volunteer to care for the Madagascar primates. I also decided to start a critter sitting business. I always loved to help people, and I thought what better way than to care for people’s animals while they are on vacation or whenever they need to be away from home.
I am owned by a Ragdoll cat, Milan, my Coton de Tulear dog, Delilah and various betta fish. I also raise praying mantises from hatching til release. I look forward to working with you, loving your animals as though they are my own, and showing you what makes Complete Critter Care special.
