“I know what it's like to be busy with everything life gives you in a day. I also know what it's like to have a furry family member who has needs that are juggled with the busy levels of life. I wanted to provide a safe place during the day where your fur-baby can feel at home while being away from home.”

"I've had a desire to help animals all my life, and an intuition with them that isn't really explainable. A wise woman sent me in the right direction so I could utilize my gifts and my education. So here I am to help as many canines (and their people) as I can."
