It quickly grew into a city-wide publication that would promote “Pre-Loved Pets” searching for new homes.

The new twelve page “Community Animal Report” was delivered to local vet offices. Her publication helped raise awareness and funds for shelter dogs and cats needing expensive procedures. DiAnna linked local veterinarians willing to help with shelter animals in need which launched her philanthropic career.

The needs of her community combined with her passion were recognized by the local paper which published her weekly column for eighteen years telling of local animal’s needs. Her philanthropic efforts developed into the charity known as Community Animal Network.

Currently, she teaches pet-parenting classes, consults on feline behavior, and offers internships to aspiring veterinarians teaching about cat care; how to administer pills and other medications, and to give injections, too.

Now, she’s taking another step helping animals writing for PoundWishes.com
