Welcome Supporters!

2019 is the year for me to do uncomfortable things. I want to purposefully push myself out of my comfort zone and get back to living a life I am proud of and excited about every damn day.

As many of you know, I opened my very own vet clinic in Florence, Ky called Pet2Vet. I finally get to take care of pets and their owners without any bs in the way.

My next big venture will be the Chicago Marathon on Oct 13, 2019. It has been 6 YEARS since my last marathon! It is a struggle to find time, motivation, and energy to run these days but I’m not going to let that keep me from doing something I’ve always had such a passion for in the past. To keep me on track I’m running for an amazing group and saving animals at the same time. Please help me in supporting Paws Chicago in anyway you can. Here is some information on how they make a difference every damn day!

PAWS Chicago is dedicated to building No Kill communities – starting with a No Kill Chicago – where all healthy and treatable pets are saved. Since PAWS Chicago’s founding in 1997, the number of homeless animals euthanized per year in Chicago has dropped more than 80 percent. In 2016, PAWS Chicago found loving homes for more than 5,100 homeless pets. But there is more work to be done and your generosity is crucial to this effort.

Please consider supporting me by making a donation and helping PAWS Chicago provide vital medical care, food and shelter to thousands of homeless pets this year. PAWS receives no government funding and relies solely on people like you to help provide continued care for Chicago's homeless animals.

Your support will allow us to build a truly humane and compassionate community, one pet at a time. Please consider donating to my cause.

If you are feeling extra generous, please consider sharing my page with your network or check with your employer if they will match your donation to make the most out of your generosity.

Thank you for your support!
