Lorena Rapoport

After ten years working as a real estate agent, Mrs. Rapoport felt it was time for a change and dedicate her time to what she loves most…DOGS!

Animals have always played an integral part in her life; as a child, Lorena was introduced to the world of horse breeding and training by her father, who owned a Paso Fino Horse Ranch in Colombia. As an adult, Mrs. Rapoport moved to the USA and became a certified nutritionist and dog trainer; Lorena currently has a Pitbull named Simon, and a standard Schnauzer named Candy.
Over the years close friends and family would ask her to board their dogs for them. This might be for a day or week(s) due to business trips, school, work, etc. When the owner picked up their pet or came to visit they always asked her to write down everything that she was doing because they couldn’t believe the increased levels of energy, vitality, and health they saw in their pets. Lorena always told them “we are just taking care of your pet like one of the family”.

PetCoral began as and has continued to be a passion project for Lorena. It is her hope that one-day PetCoral Resort and Veterinary will serve as an outlet to help the homeless animals of the community. Starting with the Grand Opening, PetCoral has hosted several fundraisers to benefit local animal shelter(s) and/or organizations.
