Elliot Lara

Elliot joined the Rover Oaks team in 2012 as a Pet Care Technician in the Lodging Department. She later advanced to Pet Care Supervisor, followed by Assistant Pet Care Manager, then Doggie Daycare Manager before becoming our Operations and Employee Development Manager. She has known from a child that her life would be dedicated to animals and it was not a hard choice to join the Rover Oaks team. Currently, she has experience with dogs, cats, horses, cows, goats, fish, birds, snakes, and small animals. She shares her home with five dogs, two cats, a snake, a parrot, two rats, a turtle, and an aquarium full of fish. Sid, a cattle dog mix; Taiko, a border collie mix; Harliquin, a Doberman; Beanz, a lab mix; Frieda, a Chihuahua; Cleo and Scully, the cats; OB, the snake; Sam, the Mexican red-headed parrot; Trick and Treat, a Fancy and a Dumbo rat; and last but not least, HD, the Red-Eared Slider. In her spare time, Elliot enjoys participating in various dog sports such as agility, obedience, and fly ball with her pups, and volunteering with rescues in Houston, fostering dogs, and attending adoption events.
