*Who is filling out this interview?
*How long have you been with the company for?
I am the founder. Myself and my co-founder, Chantal Locke have both been with FundMyPet since its inception.
*How long has your business been around for?
FundMyPet.com has been launched for 3 months.
*Why was it started?
My German Shepherd started to show signs of hip dysplasia and we were devastated. We needed to look into funding for treatment options. We found that – other than pet insurance or credit loans, there were not many options for funding assistance if he required surgery. We realized that we shared this problem with thousands of people and so we wanted to create a solution.
*Do you have any animals?
Yes, I have 5 animals. 2 are rescues.

1) Zane – our German Shepherd loves water more than any else ( even sticks ). We’re convinced he’s part fish.
2) Zara (Rescue) – our Doberman is shy girl but once she gets to know you, she’ll lick you to death.
3) Quinn – our miniature Dachshund – he’s got one blue eye and one brown eye. He pretty much runs the show around here. He’s mighty and tough but somehow also winds up snuggling on my lap every night.
4) Duke ( Rescue ) – our cat Duke is part Egyptian Mau. He hates being picked up but loves to snuggle up to me when it’s convenient for him!
5) Dexter – our cat Dexter is one of a kind. He loves macaroni and cheese and requires alot of love and attention. If he doesn’t get his required attention, we hear about it.
