Hi, my name is LaRain Saige and I moved to Post Falls Idaho in 2001 from Arizona, working for Walmart and opening Supercenters for 16 years. After surviving Acute Myeloid Leukemia in 2004, a change in careers was in order!

I have been around animals my whole life (being raised on a farm), including llamas, horses, cows, pigs, goats, ducks, chickens, ferrets, hamsters, dogs, cats, etc, etc, etc. Even a snake or two!! I currently have 4 dogs, 2 cats (all rescues) 10 chickens, 2 goats and lots of rabbits! So a career in working with animals seemed to be the best fit.

In 2008 I started working as a Pet Sitter, Dog Walker and Animal Care Specialist. I also volunteered at the Post Falls Police Dept Animal Shelter, then became the Volunteer Coordinator for the Kootenai Humane Society, and after that worked at a Veterinary Clinic. I currently work as a Pet Health Consultant helping pets stay happy and healthy at home!

After helping people with their animals in different situations for years and after seeing gaps in the current community programs, I founded TAILS Foundation Inc in 2016. The mission is to help families care for their pets through education, training and resources for optimal health and well-being of all animals. This is so families don’t have to give up their pets for temporary financial reasons, and keeps animals out of the shelters and rescues that are already overwhelmed.

I have been a part of the Post Falls Chamber and have been an Ambassador for them for over a year now, visiting and getting to know local businesses. I have also completed the River City Leadership Academy program this year which was amazing! I have been blessed with so many wonderful experiences and have met many amazing people in our community!
