I’m so happy to announce our second annual Push Ups for Pups Challenge! Check out our team bios and who we are helping support below! 

P.U.P. is an annual fundraiser that we have organized to benefit one of the local animal rescues in Seattle each year. I grew up watching The Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin, who always taught us how amazing animals are, and that we need to treat them with care and respect. We are so lucky to have them in our lives, and sometimes that means doing a little bit extra to help them out.

When I was 11 years old, we moved to a town outside of Santa Fe, NM. Our next-door neighbor was Heart and Soul Animal Sanctuary, an animal rescue that saved hundreds of abandoned and abused animals each year. I started volunteering there as much as possible during the summers, and I got to help care for and rehabilitate dogs, cats, poultry, llamas, goats, horses, and pretty much any animal in need that we had space for. Even at such a young age, I recognized how cruel and awful some people can be, but more importantly, I learned how resilient our furry friends can be when they are shown love. It was always so wonderful seeing families completed by the addition of their rescued fur baby, and to see the animals have their happy ending! 

I have always deeply cared for animals, and strive to help out when and how I can. My hope for this event is that we can all come together as a community and help save even more furry lives! We have the opportunity to show our love of animals, help support the cause, and show appreciation for those doing the important work that several of us aren’t able to do. We’re doing it for the doggos, (and all other animals,) peeps! 



It all kicks off May 16th at 12pm, and goes through the end of May!
