Volunteer one hour at a shelter, donate a day's worth of food for one animal (must have verifiable receipt with shelter logo or letterhead)and receive 10% off your order.

What tip would you give pet parents for working with animals that you've learned as a pro?

I have a number of ways to minimize the amount of work involved in keeping a clean house with 7 cats. I also have a lot of experience in socializing feral cats. If you have any questions feel free to email me.

What is one thing you want pet parents to know about you? It can be whatev-fur you'd like!

I care deeply about the welfare of animals and not just pets, or the cute and cuddly kind. I believe that all life matters and all living creatures have a right to exist.
