Greetings!  My name is Barbara Tapella and I Love all animals. The photo– me & my sweet dog, Moki! She passed July 2011 at age 17. Best Dog ever! I rescued her when she was 7 or 8.

Caring for animals and giving them a voice is my great passion.   I have been known to go to great lengths to help animals and their people as well as educate public with regard to the humane treatment.  Having been a preschool teacher for many years, teaching respect and kindness to all living things needs to start with the very young.

Pets touch my heart deeply.   I like to give them a voice so they can be heard. I respect them with great dignity.   My hope is that many more people will do the same this year and for years to come.   I offer information so they can be “seen”, feel respected, and be treated well.   An animal deserves to be treated with the utmost kindness you hold for yourself.  I have seen animal’s behavior misinterpreted, witnessed abuse and abandonment.  Education is power, right?

My site offers you valuable information and unique products for your beloved pets.  I enjoy connecting people and animals for various reasons. Building community and networking have always been one of my top priorities.  I have learned the value of the Internet and how it can ripple communication through communities at rapid speeds.   I have witnessed animal networking happen in just moments with this valuable tool.

I want to offer you healing touch techniques with your pet, advertising if a pet needs a home, if lost or found, teaching a child how to deal with a new pet, dealing with your aging pet, grieving for the loss of your companion, etc.   I help people adopt and rescue pets, connecting people with animals and right situations.   I teach families how important a “forever” home and a lifetime pet commitment.   I also offer tools to help you deal with your aging pets and information as to how their needs can be best met. The senior-stage of life is quite different from  puppy-hood or a teen.

My formal education in Psychology, Art Therapy and being a Massage Therapist for over 28 years has given me compassion in helping one deal with the “last stages of life” with your pet.  In my life and career, I have developed a strong sense of intuition and can easily pick up on non-verbal gestures and energy.  This allows me to offer deep compassion in helping with your pet.

One of the programs I have developed is a simple PET EMERGENCY PLAN for you and your family. When there is an emergency and/or crisis, special consideration for your pets is ‘a must‘.
It shows you how you can develop a pet emergency team in your neighborhood.  Creating an awesome community full of support for you and your pet.  Think about this:  If there is an emergency/disaster and you couldn’t return home wouldn’t you feel better if you had a plan in place to feed and care for your pets?  I know I would. That is what inspired me to develop this plan . Imagine you’d know that your animal companions are taken care of if you were unable to get home.   Relief.  (See Offer Page)

Another issue I want to advocate is having a plan in place to place your pet when you die.

I would love to stay connected, please sign up with your information on the contact page.  I will have on going video blogs, written blogs, forums, e-books, webinars, and more to share with you. I love to meet other animal lovers, of all ages.  Feel free to read the blog I provide under the HOME tab. I would love to hear your related stories. Feel free to add your comments below any blog that you find interesting or that relates to your life.  Would appreciate you “liking” my Facebook Fan Page, MyPetFirst.

With Gratitude, Barbara
