The Puppy Mill Project (TPMP) is my dream, my passion, and my life’s work. Since 2009, my team of volunteers have been working tirelessly to educate the public about the atrocity of puppy mills. Our goal is simple: put an end to puppy mill cruelty.

Matching humans and senior dogs one bond at a time. For information on adopting a senior in your area, email susie.doggie@gmail.com. Age is a privilege.

Sheri Berliner of Petraits™ Pet Photography is a professional photographer who combines her love of animals and her photographic talent to capture pet personalities on film. Sheri shares her home with a pack of much-adored rescues including: seven cats, two dogs, a rabbit and a cockatiel. Although the count changes day-to-day depending on what rescued pets join her menagerie temporarily while looking for permanent homes.

GofidoGoodFido is owned and operated by Fran Berry, a positive reinforcement trainer certified through the Certification Council of Professional Dog Trainers. Her mission is to prevent the Family-Dog from turning into a Shelter-Dog!

Whether needing Private In-Home training to teach your dog or puppy basic behaviors or showing you how to resolve more complex issues like aggression and separation anxiety, we have a package to fit your situation.

We believe that training should be fun, affordable and for the life of your companion, therefore we offer a variety of classes that are instructional, social and active!

We'd love to have you stop by sometime to watch our classes, just give us a call at 773-784-8474.

Our Mission

With so many different options to choose from, we wanted to create a place where every pet owner knows the food and treats available are always organic and healthy. Through education and research, we show how big of a role a pet's nutrition and diet plays into their health and happiness.
