Hello and welcome to my blog for APAW, Advocacy for Pets and Affordable Wellness.  I’m Barbara, and I live in Orange County, California, where I started a pet service business after quitting the corporate world to dedicate my life to pets.  Like many of you, my husband and I have experienced the financial strain of high-cost pet medications.  After years of overpaying for these medications, I’m thrilled to stand behind APAW in their mission to help pet owners gain access to affordable pet health care.

To me, keeping my pets happy and healthy is a huge priority, as I’m sure it is for many of you. Together, with APAW, I think we can make a change.  I think everyone deserves to know the unconditional love of a pet, and every pet deserves the health care they need.  I hope you will join me as I blog about my journey with APAW, and I look forward to being a voice for pet owners everywhere.
