Daily Inspiration: Meet Lucy Cano

Today we’d like to introduce you to Lucy Cano.

Hi Lucy, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstory.
Growing up I was always surrounded by various types of pets; from birds, bunnies to dogs. Over time my love for animals grew to a point of compassion and eventually understanding them. Later in life, I decided to volunteer at my local shelter and realized the limited amount of resources that were available. Then, the pandemic hit; and soon doors were eventually starting to close for volunteers. I couldn’t help but to feel saddened and helpless. Worried about all the pups, worried that things were going to get worse. I knew I had to do something to help and quickly! It was this moment that fueled a passion.

The idea of Lovely Pawz was born, inspired by all those angels in the shelters. We wanted to create something fun for the fur babies and their humans. After much thought we felt there were multiple areas to contribute; from dog collars, bandanas, treats, toys and accessories. Monthly, we donate a proceed to shelters or rescue. Lovely Pawz has many future plans to flourish and make a bigger impact. We couldn’t have done this without our supporters, I appreciate all the love and the willingness to help us help all fur babies. We might not be able to save all animals, but one paw at a time is more than you can imagine.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Just like any small business, it has definitely not been a smooth road. Many late-night hours working, planning, store trips, reports and planning. As a one-woman show, it’s hard finding the time to juggle it all. Grateful for all the help and support I get from my family. Each one of them have been part of this successful journey.

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
We create fun, cute dog accessories for your pets.

What matters most to you? Why?
One thing that matters the most to me is the well-being of the animals. Having to witness some bad cases of treatment, abuse, and sick pups, it has definitely impacted me and want to do better for them.
