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.

Please Share What I Post–I & the Animals Thank You

sharing

Hi, everyone. Since WP notifies us of comments, follows & likes, it stands to reason they’d also make us aware of any shares. It seems, this would go without saying, but, a blog like this is definitely meant to be shared. Not so I can receive more traffic. It’s so the animals who are lost, found, in need of rescuing, rehoming, fostering or adopting can have a positive outcome. 

Perhaps you don’t live in NorCal. Your friends, family and/or readers might. Or, people they know might. The more people this information goes out to, the better. I have every sharing option offered that WP makes available. For these furbabies sake, please do share. Thanks.

What This Blog is About

I’m 47 & have been an animal lover my whole life. I have a special affinity for kitties, as, I’ve literally had them in my life since I was born. Many of those were adopted or came to us as strays. I’ve continued that with my husband. Who also has had cats his whole life.

Most of the information I post on here will be about lost/found pets & animals to foster/adopt. Primarily from NorCal, as, that’s the area we’re in. As this will be an international readership, there will also be some from other states & countries. If you’d like something added, please contact me.

Much of what I put on here will be uplifting. Though, I am a realist, so, sometimes there will be mention of the unpleasant side, including, those who neglect & abuse animals. The more people who are aware of this reprehensible behavior, the sooner we can eradicate it all together. Thanks for stopping by & hope that you enjoy your time here.

Friends of Ukiah Animal Shelter

A couple of months ago I went to the orientation for the local animal shelter here. I had been wanting to volunteer (with animals, especially) for, at least, 20 years. Health & other circumstances kept me from it. Though, I would check into it, from time to time. Including things I could do online.

Three months ago I decided, even though things still aren’t quite ideal, including with our living situation, it felt like it was the right time to volunteer. I’m glad I am. It’s been the most rewarding & uplifting experience I’ve ever had.

This is the Facebook page for the shelter: Friends of Ukiah Animal Shelter  The pic is of one of the dogs, Lincoln, available for adoption. He can be seen 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.

Though most of my posts will pertain to animals in NorCal, as, that’s where we live, I expect to have an international readership, sothere will be items added about animals in other states & countries. Even if you’re not from the area that the post is about, please do consider sharing. The more people it reaches, the better for these animals. Thanks.
