Our Mission

we hope to one day end the killing of innocent shelter animals by euthanasia.

Why 13%

1 Corinthians 13:13

And now these three remain:

faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Help us spread the love!

Meet the Founder

Allow me to introduce myself! My name is Julie-Anne and I have always had a passion for helping others. I majored in Child & Family Development at San Diego State University and worked for various non profits helping victims of domestic violence and child abuse. In 2011, I co-founded the non profit IDEAL (International Deaf Education Advocacy & Leadership). I spent a summer in Africa supporting and empowering deaf children and youth through human rights advocacy and the promotion of education and leadership. 

 

I later went on to become a flight attendant for a major airline in 2015 and volunteered at a local animal shelter during my free time. Unfortunately, that's when I learned about the harsh reality of kill-shelters. According to the ASPCA, about 1.5 million shelter animals are euthanized each year in the US. My heart broke when I discovered these horrific statistics. I couldn't believe that people would continue to buy animals from breeders and pet shops when millions of innocent shelter animals were being killed every day. 1.5 million animals euthanized each year simply because they didn't have a safe place to call home. It was at that moment I realized I had to do something. Anything. 

 

That’s when I founded Spread Pawzitivity in 2020. It is through this small business that I am able to spread awareness and raise money to help save these shelter animals. By donating 13% of profits to no-kill animal shelters and rescues, I hope to one day end the unnecessary killing of innocent shelter animals.

 

I currently volunteer as the Director of Events for The Animal Pad dog rescue (TAP) where I hope to spread awareness about the importance of rescuing throughout the San Diego community and beyond. While volunteering at TAP, I experienced the power of rescuing firsthand. I adopted two rescue dogs including Trooper, who is a tripawd, and Rexi Roo, who was born without her two front legs. I am so in love with these special fur babies and so grateful for their unconditional love. They truly are my inspiration, they are the reason why I choose to Spread Pawzitivity. 

 

I may not be able to save every animal that will be euthanized this year, but I can at least start with one!
