Sabrina Freed founded Puppy Love as a way to merge her passion for animals with her expertise in corporate event management. Sabrina was a pioneer in the field of tech conferences and large scale corporate events. Her clients have included: Microsoft, Amgen, InVision Communications and many more. From this perspective, Sabrina understands how to develop a meaningful event. She has run conferences, technology expos and corporate welfare events.
Sabrina is also a fiercely passionate about animals and making all animals feel loved and welcome. She has fostered dogs and over time discovered that her dream would be to bring the joy of fostering dogs to others. Sabrina was actually terrified of animals until she was a young adult.
While the events are only about two hours, I sometimes spend weeks with the puppies, fostering them between events. I had been fostering eight puppies for two weeks and had just returned them to Jake’s Wish Rescue when I thought I would have a little break to clean up chew toys and put away a few dog food bowls, when just a few days later, the unexpected happened.
I went to the The Milo Foundation to pick up pups for my next event and just when I walked in the door, I saw Becca and Toffee. Two dogs of the same breed who were as adorable as ever. I took them and four other pups to my next event and the two of them loved every bit of attention they got. As I pulled up to the The Milo Foundation to return the six pups, I could not let go of Becca and Toffee.
It was in that moment that I realized I needed them just as much as they needed me. They needed this second chance at life and I needed them in my life. The two could not be separated nor did I want them to be. They are the perfect duo, best of friends and now my two snuggle buddies.
They have so much love to share and I’m so happy I found them when I did!
