For as long as I can remember, I have been a big lover of ALL animals….
When I was young, we lived on a small acreage of land, where we were home to horses, cattle, dogs, cats, and every lucky stray that found us. Nurturing and bonding with animals is something that has always come naturally to me.
I’m also a huge proponent and supporter of animal rights and the organizations that fight to protect them. Nothing angers me more than to see an innocent animal killed for sport, being mistreated, abandoned, or abused.
Our pets love us unconditionally; they are an integral part of our lives and considered by most to be a member of the family. All they ask for in return is to be loved and cared for. Those that find loving homes are the lucky ones.
It was this love of animals, especially dogs that played a large role in my decision to make a career change and leave the corporate world after more than 25 years, and pursue something I was passionate about. I knew I wanted to find a way to make a positive difference in the lives of dogs, and work to provide the resources to accomplish that.
This strong passion is what drives me, and creating The Nurturing Paw is a way of reaching out and connecting with those that are as passionate as I am. My goal is to create a healthier life for all dogs….one dog at a time.
