Our Dog House History
I was lucky enough to be raised by parents who love & respect the animal kingdom. They taught me that our furry friends were always a part of our family – not merely animals used for protection or mouse hunting; nor were they excluded from family events. All my life, I’ve rescued homeless, abandoned, and hurt pets. My mom used to tease me that my very first words were… “Look what I found, can I keep him?”
As an adult, I was lucky enough again to meet and marry a man that shared my passion to help those that cannot speak for themselves. In 1996 we started Catnip Trails, Inc. a private rescue in Central Florida. We have saved hundreds, if not thousands of cats, dogs, donkeys and a few livestock. Currently living with 4 dogs, 7 cats, and 2 donkeys – all rescues, we’ve always strived to give them the best life possible. In 2008, I attended canine massage therapy and healing touch for animals training to ensure all rescue pets get their day at the spa — Party included!
It was Easter and the family was gathering at our house. We have 2 daughters and 3 grand-dogs and were searching for some Easter games for the dogs to play. We quickly realized there were few choices when it came to holiday and/or themed dog parties. Thus, Dog House Parties – all inclusive party kits for dogs – was born.
We have always tried to give something back to the rescue community. So, for every Dog House Party sold, a portion of our profits are donated to rescues around the globe. We currently support local rescues & shelters, national animal welfare organizations, and even the Save-A-Sato and Save-A-Gato foundations in Puerto Rico.
Every life is precious – celebrate it in style with a Dog House Party!
