Make You Want to be a Doer in the World of Animal Welfare

If you're an animal lover, you won't want to miss Paws and Perros. Hosted by Raquel Cid, this podcast is a must-listen for anyone who wants to learn more about animal rescue, fostering, and pet ownership. Raquel's infectious energy and passion for animals shine through in every episode, and she's joined by an amazing cast of guests who are doing incredible work to save furry lives and make a difference in the world I am humbled I got to be one of this week.

I was able to highlight the important work of Praline's Backyard Foundation, I can attest to the incredible impact that Paws and Perros is having in the animal welfare community. Whether you're looking to start your own animal rescue or pet-based business, or simply want to become a better pet owner, this podcast is packed with valuable insights and practical advice.

I particularly appreciate the way that Raquel deconstructs the world of animal rescue and makes it accessible to everyone. She shares her own journey as a foster parent.

I highly recommend this podcast to anyone who loves animals and wants to make a positive impact in their lives. Thanks to Raquel and Happy Birthday and Congrats on the upcoming delivery of your new baby!

Keep up the great work, and I can't wait to tune in to the next episode!"
