What People are Saying

“Extremely happy with the service

“I will most certainly use them again and again! I highly recommend any pet owner that loves their pet use them and be comfortable in knowing they will love your pet just like they are at home!

Jimmie M.

“Treat each pet like their own

That is just the type of animal lovers they are – they love, care, and treat each pet like their own. In addition, they take pictures, videos, and are extremely interactive with the owners.

Lemi S.

“Flexible with my schedule

We have a poodle mix and a pit bull and they both love Brandi and Lena. Our pitty is hard to handle and can only be walked by people with experience and strength!

Dylan H.

Reliable, responsible, kind

Brandi has been a great pet sitter/dog walker for my dog and two cats.  Reliable, responsible, kind.  It was a huge relief knowing I could trust her in my home

Our Story

To Be Loved was born To BEE Loved in South LA during the summer of 2016 when founder and dog lover Brandi Coleman, bka Bee, realized that no pet care companies like ours existed in this area of Los Angeles. After moving to LA from DC a few years following graduation from Howard University with not more than a degree in electrical engineering, a lifelong love for dogs and a dream of starting their own business, Bee spent over 4 years learning the ins and outs of caring for pets and running a viable business at a pair of successful pet care establishments on the East Side of LA.  During that time, Bee came to appreciate the intimate connections and community that having pets facilitates people while noticing that the pet care resources available all over DTLA, Silver Lake, Hollywood and beyond were missing in South LA.


Always determined to right the wrongs they see and build community, Bee set up shop in the View Park/Leimert park with support from loved ones, offering dog walking and overnight care to residents of South LA, many who had never even considered professional pet care as an option or need. Fast forward four years later, and To Bee Loved the sole proprietorship headed by Bee has evolved into To Be Loved,  LA’s first worker-owned pet care cooperative, collectively owned by Bee, Angel Arellano and Lena Williams and supported by a growing group of dedicated and loving pet care pros who represent the QTPOC (queer, trans, people of color) community. Our values include love, care and creativity and we are excited to deliver that #goodlove to pets all over Los Angeles. Book with us and your pet will never forget what it means #tobeloved.
