Pennys Pawsitive Pins started out in late 2018, after losing both dogs in the household in back to back months from old age. This was a really sad time for the family The one thing that cheered penny up while at our family vet, were the sweet cats up for adoption in the lobby. From gushing tears to giggling like a maniac at the flip of a switch.
Penny thought it would be nice to help the cats at the rescue, who cheered her up so much. While her family is not rich in money (donating was not possible), Penny and her daddy had an idea that instead they’d create some buttons to donate. Sheets Pet Clinic could then sell those to help with their fundraising efforts. for their feral cat adoption services. (amongst other free/low cost things they provide)
Penny worked hard to draw up and letter, while her daddy digitized, laid them out, then coloring them as a duo. The buttons were a smash hit at the vet, selling out quickly! She is now expanding her reach to local markets to help spread a positive message further! It is a chance for her to build useful life skills, earn money, and give back to those in need all while saving up for her own grand adventures.
