Paw Prints on My Heart Pet Shop

Hi, everyone. Thanks for taking the time to read this. I’ve been wanting to have an online store for several years. What held me back is, I have a background in customer service, not, marketing. The times I’ve needed to promote something (an affiliate program, for example), it didn’t go so well. I figured, this time around, a smart business person would delegate the responsibility to those who are skilled in that area. Though, I will still do some of my own advertising.

I wasn’t sure what my focus would be & then, it came to me. Pet products & animal themed items. It fits so well. I volunteer with the kitties at the shelter here in Ukiah. I have a blog for lost/found/rescue pets & those needing to be rehomed/fostered/adopted in NorCal. I have a rescue/rehome group on here that incorporates the counties for area code 707. Throughout my life (including with my husband), I’ve done rescuing & adopting. Though, in a much smaller way than I’d like to. I’ve/we’ve also never fostered.

As some of you know, my husband & I have been working on getting a home. We’re stalled in the loan process. We have good credit & references. Due to disabilities & health issues, we both work from home. As an independent contractor, projects vary, as does income. This venture should be just what is needed. We had a mobile in Cloverdale for seven years. Then, life went topsy turvy for awhile. We’ve been in this studio for three years. We’re thankful for it, though, it’s definitely been less than ideal, to say the least. Won’t go into details, but, happy to share in private.

Besides wanting a house that we can truly call a home, we want a place where we can seriously start rescuing/fostering/adopting. As you know, there are more animals needing loving, nurturing homes than those who can provide them. We want to be one of those families. We’ve been told we should probably do quite well with that. 10% of the proceeds will be given to MSPR (Mendo Shelter Pets Rescue).

At this time my store carries toys & supplies. Limited on food & treats. My current suppliers don’t tend to have those. I am looking for additional ones. I also have animal related items, such as, jewelry & crafts. Besides them having cats & dogs, they include other animals, such as, wolves & tigers. I hope to always have free shipping, a sale every second weekend of the month (50% off on select items), loyal customers who have made 10 purchases will receive a special code for 25% off their entire 11th order. I will be adding other options down the road.

Any questions or requests, please send to: pawprintsonmyheartpetshop@gmail.com I have a page on Facebook for the shop: https://www.facebook.com/yourpetproducts/ The actual shop: https://pawprintsonmyheartpetshop.com/ I hope that you find what you seek. Do keep checking back & please share this with everyone you know. It will help create a better present & future for us & the animals we take in & at MSPR.


Lincoln (Pittie) Looking to be Adopted in Ukiah, CA


This was posted on the Friends of Ukiah Animal Shelter Facebook page. This is the shelter I volunteer at. At this point it’s with the kitties. I’ve had cats all my life & have a connection with them. Though, I do hope to work with the dogs down the road. Also fostering/adopting them.

Lincoln is sponsored by us here at Friends and MSPR. He’s a volunteer favorite and we want him to have a home of his own. We are hoping that having his adoption fees covered will get you to the shelter to check him out.

***All dogs are on a quarantine hold until October 26th. This adoptable pet is located at the Ukiah Animal Shelter, which is open Tuesday-Saturday 10am-5pm with Wednesdays open late until 7pm. The address is 298 Plant Road Ukiah, CA. Friends of Ukiah Animal Shelter is run by volunteers, animal advocates and animal lovers of Mendocino County, not the staff of the Ukiah Animal Shelter. We now are also a 501c3 nonprofit called Mendo Shelter Pets Rescue (MSPR). This pet is currently not a MSPR pet, although could be if a foster home was found. Please email us at info@mendoshelterpets.com if you would be interested in fostering for Mendo Shelter Pets Rescue. www.mendoshelterpets.com

Ducky (Pit Mix) in Need of Surgery


This was posted on the Friends of Ukiah Shelter page on Facebook. This is one of the dogs at the shelter where I volunteer. Fortunately, my husband & I were able to donate. If you’re able to contribute as well, please do. If you don’t have PayPal, they do accept checks. If you’re not able to, then, please do hold a good thought & keep him in your prayers. Also, share this with other animal lovers that you know. Much appreciated.

URGENT Medical Emergency! We need to raise 900.00 NOW! This could be life or death for Ducky. https://www.paypal.me/mendopetrescue
Team, Ducky has been bleeding non-stop from his fine needle aspirate site and he needs to have the mass removed now! The Ukiah Animal Shelter has agreed to allow us to move forward and for that we are very thankful. Dr. Fetherston has graciously offered to get him in tomorrow at Yokayo Veterinary Center to remove the mass and send it in for biopsy. We have a glimmer of hope because although the cytology reports came back inconclusive Ducky’s blood work came back normal. Ducky deserves a chance help us give it to him!
