Meet Ray Madore
Ray’s Pro Pet Care is owned and managed by sole proprietor Raymond K. Madore who hails from Massachusetts. Immediately following his graduation from high school, Ray enlisted in the United States Air Force and spent his first two year tour of duty in England where he was stationed at RAF Station Wethersfield in Essex and was assigned to the 2163rd Communication Squadron (AFCS). Ray then volunteered to go to Vietnam and was posted to Binh Thuy Air Base (Mekong Delta) and was assigned to the 1880th Communication Squadron (AFCS) where he became a Communications Specialist and received the Air Force Commendation Medal and an Honorable Discharge.
Providing the service that you would expect...
Upon returning home to the U.S., Ray was recruited by the U.S. State Department as a Communications Officer with the Diplomatic Corps and was posted to Nairobi, Kenya. Following a two year posting at the American Embassy, he was reassigned to Bangkok, Thailand. While serving in Bangkok, he was again assigned to Vietnam (for temporary duty) to open the Consulate General in Biên Hòa.
After leaving the State Department, Ray returned to the U.S. and was employed by Trans World Airlines to work in passenger relations at Boston's Logan International Airport. He later transferred from Boston to TWA's Kansas City Administration Center where he served as an Automation Support Coordinator for the Computer Operations division of the airline. In this role, he assisted travel industry professionals with software and hardware concerns regarding TWA's advanced reservations system, PARS (now known as Worldspan,) which was, at the time, one of the most advanced computer systems in the world.
The Kansas City position earned Ray a promotion to the position of Senior Customer Relations Representative for the President of TWA in Manhattan. After serving a year in New York, he was selected for a position in Seattle as TWA's Regional Sales Manager for the Pacific Northwest. He fell in love with Washington State and made the Seattle area his permanent home. Several years later, TWA started experiencing financial distress in the newly deregulated environment and offered middle management personnel early retirement.
Ray left TWA and secured a position with SpaceLabs Medical, Inc. where he directed and managed the extensive corporate travel services and fleet of vehicles. During this time, Ray received his Certified Corporate Travel Executive (CCTE) certification and credentials. Sadly, SpaceLabs Medical also experienced financial difficulties due to an economic downturn and eventually eliminated the position.
Shortly later, Ray permanently retired and focused on his love for animals and service to others. He now operates his pet, house, and concierge services, kindheartedly serving pets and their owners across Seattle and the East Side.
In 1992, Ray contacted the King County Big Brother's Association, was approved for the Big Brother's program, and met his young charge; a moment in time that began what became years of friendship, mentoring and growth for both Ray and a fine young boy and established a long-time acquaintance with the boy's mother. That young boy has since grown up and gone on to proudly serve his country and they remain close today. Ray is extremely proud of that young man and cherishes his years with these fine people.
Ray is also known well by friends and associates as an exceptional cook, a lover of both classical and jazz music, an extensive world traveler, a true gentleman, and a very devoted active student who has been practicing Iyengar Yoga http://www.thiyoga.com/index.html for many years and loves it.
