Nana’s blog has been on a bit of a hiatus as of late due to an uptick in business (never a bad thing).. But, no more radio silence we promise! Especially since we are back with some big news- it is our 10th birthday!
Nana’s was started way back in 2007 with the simple concept that Nana ( Linda Edwards) needed a little bit of extra joy in her life after losing her husband and her exact thought was “animals make me happy and bring me joy and I want to surround myself with the unconditional love given by our four-legged companions.” And, let’s be honest, who doesn’t love walking into the house being greeted with tail wags and kisses? So Nana’s Pet Sitting was born.
Now ten years later, what started out as a simple way to add more joy into the life of
Nana and help the pet parents feel comfortable heading on vacation while leaving Fluffy behind, has blossomed into the premier pet sitting company in the Charlotte area.
For Nana’s tenth birthday we wanted to do something BIG. Something to show the Charlotte community how much we appreciate being a part of the pet scene and give back some of the joy the dogs and cats give us every day.
So, we are raising money for one of the most dedicated pet rescue groups around: Great Dane Friends of Ruff Love (GDFRL). Not only does GDFRL work their tail off hosting adoption events and a few pet shows throughout the year, they dedicate their lives to finding these gentle giants a forever home.
Unlike some pet rescues, each Dane is set up with a vetted foster family to train, rehabilitate and love these dogs. Great Danes often get overlooked due to heath issues and their size, but they need the same love and devotion smaller breeds get. Which is where we (and you) come in.
We are raising funds so they can keep these dogs in foster homes with the adequate space and training they need and you can join in on the fun too!
For our 10th birthday we are asking for $10 donations (but will of course take any size donation you wish to make) to help raise $10,000 during our Birthday month of July.
And, for a little extra birthday fun, all those who donate $10 or more are entered for a chance to win a gift basket courtesy of Nana’s Pet Store filled with 10 of our top items!
