They have been such great friends over the past few years and I can’t wait for you to hear all about their journey from being a couple in high school to living in a van with their dog sunny! We get into how van life has impacted their long-term relationship, prioritizing hobbies for joy (whether you’re in a van or not), and what they are manifesting for the future.

    Single-Handedly Saving Dogs’ Lives | ft. Lauren, The Animal Pad

    Single-Handedly Saving Dogs’ Lives | ft. Lauren, The Animal Pad

    Today Lauren from “The Animal Pad'' is giving us a peek into her world of animal rescue! The passion that this woman has for animal rescue pours out of her, as you’ll see in this episode! She shares with us some first hand stories about dog rescues in Baja, Mexico, her experience with compassion fatigue, the red flags you need to look out for if you’re going to buy from a breeder or a rescue (she spills the tea on this since she just rescued 111 dogs from a breeder!), and how you can help. Animal rescue is an intense yet very rewarding operation and we shined the light on both!

I like sleep😴 ,

😜😜😜

I watch you on you tube and when I heard about your podcast I had to listen
I am on episode one and can’t waste to listen more

So relatable!

You always think you are the only person that suffers from social anxiety and never “fits in”. I relate a lot to those that live a different lifestyle, as I have moved a lot and lived in different Countries. Thank you for not making me feel so odd! Such a great podcast.

Easy listening

I found this podcast about 3 weeks ago and have been binge listening ever since. So easy to stick on while I’m working and help the time fly by!
