From Rescuer to Founder: A Journey in Pet Enrichment

Our founder Fran Olmstead is a life long animal lover. She has befriended and cared for a number of animals including cats, dogs, birds and other small animals. She began rescuing animals at age 7 when a tiny duckling was found abandoned and alone in a local park. Her experience with animals, paired with a never-ending desire to solve problems has driven her to find solutions for pets and pet parents alike. She believes that most behavioural challenges can be solved by adding tools to pet parents arsenal. To help accomplish this, she has curated a carefully selected collection of enriching options.
