Giving Back

“The need is great and so are the opportunities to make a difference.”


Paul Newman

The Inspiration

Many years ago I read the following words by author Bob Moawad:

"Help others get ahead. You will always stand taller with someone else on your shoulders.

This concept planted itself deep within me that day and, through the years, has flourished into the inspiration behind my annual pet calendar contest, a variety of fundraising projects, and countless charitable donations to the individuals and organizations that support Pittsburgh's local rescues, shelters, and non-profits.

Giving back to my local community and connecting with these like-minded people and groups lights me up. It provides purpose and joy and fills me with a sparkle to show others what an incredible impact we can make in the lives of animals and those who work tirelessly to help them. I am honored to have fostered strong partnerships with some of the best leaders in rescue and causes close to my heart, and to have my efforts supported by so many of you.
