And here we go....Wow, what a journey! And we are just getting started!
Who knew that just under two years ago, a search for a new harness for Bella that was an expression of faith, would turn into such an adventure. But God DID know and at every turn, He has opened every door that needed to be opened.
After working for years in the insurance industry (talk about a buzz kill occupation at a party), I felt a tap to get out. As a lifelong advocate for animals, I believed strongly that I should get involved with helping animal rescue operations. Initially, I thought it might be a good idea to start my own rescue. There are so many animals in need of help! I quickly realized there were plenty of excellent rescues already in place. Why reinvent the wheel?!
It suddenly became clear to me what my direction was to be. Create a line of faith based dog items and set up partnerships with animal rescues that would welcome a revenue source at no cost or effort to them. Great idea, but I was a numbers gal having run my own insurance agency with an awesome business partner for years. I needed to find a partner that was a hard worker but also had the creative "gene" I was missing. The most talented person I knew, my niece Melissa, already had a great job. However, after some prayerful consideration, she agreed to partner with me to create the boutique style online store Pets 4 Christ is today.
Our goal is to work diligently to create a great product, completely faith based, and let the buyer of each product choose which animal rescue will receive 25% of their purchase. So for every dollar our customer spends on our product, 25 cents will go to the animal rescue/charity of their choice. That way, the customer knows exactly how much of their purchase goes to help their favorite animal charity.
We invite every one of you to come along on this journey with us! Together we can dive into our mission to work with you to give you a great product AND to help many deserving rescues at the same time! We are constantly working on new fun and exciting products for you and your pet! We want to hear from you!
Help us make Pets 4 Christ a household name!
