Rebecca Axelrad, Founder and Director
Rebecca has been working in the social media and marketing field for over 10-years, but her passion has always been animals. In 2019 she got her certificate and became a dog trainer.
In 2020, Rebecca's puppy, a Bernese Mountain Dog, was diagnosed with hip dysplasia and arthritis. She would need a complete hip replacement, a surgery that costed thousands of dollars. Knowing she couldn't afford it, Rebecca set up a Gofundme and was able to raise the funds.
Stories flooded in about pet owners in similar situations. That's when Buddy's Healing Paws came to be. It is Rebecca's hope that no pet owner should have to decide whether or not to get a procedure for their pet due to lack of money or terrible insurance.
