Pets 4 Vets

Howzit hangin’, Bratzies?

Did all of our American Bratzies have a fab 4th of July??

I just met the koolest kat ever!!! Her name is Clarissa Black and she is totally a #RealBratz. Clarissa founded a rad charity called Pets 4 Vets that trains shelter dogs to become companion pets for veterans. Anyone who loves animals and who loves their country will be OB-to-the-SESSED with this awesome non-profit!

Clarissa always had a soft spot for animals. Just like me!! She grew up with a menagerie of purrfect pets: rabbits, gerbils, frogs, mice, salamanders, snakes, turtles, and a cat – of course!  Honing her sick training skillz, Clarissa taught her cat, Snowball, to sit, stay, beg, come and play hide-and-seek!! Too radtacular!! And when she was only nine years old, she taught her gerbils to climb stairs to the tune of a song she would play on a tiny toy piano!! Love it!

A #RealBratz to the core, Clarissa knew early on that she wanted to help animals when she grew up. After graduating high school, Clarissa majored in Animal Science at Cornell University, had an epic internship training elephants and eventually moved to Hawaii to work with dolphins!!

Clarissa has definitely rocked some kool jobs, but they are not what makes her a #RealBratz. Clarissa gained #RealBratz status when she decided to use all of her totally awesome skillz and knowledge to help the greater good.

There have been heaps of scientific studies proving that primo companion pets can totally help the healing process for veterans returning from war with physical and mental conditions. Pets 4 Vets provides fully trained companion dogs to veterans in need. Anglin’ for the perfect match, Clarissa meets with veterans to ascertain what he or she will need in a K-9 companion. She then hits up the local shelters and finds the perfect pup for her vet.

By exclusively training shelter dogs, Pets 4 Vets provides a new lease at life to both the veteran and his beloved new buddy. The shelter dogs and veterans help each other heal through their burgeoning friendship! Totally boss! Talk about man’s best friend!!

Clarissa is truly a #RealBratz because she leant a hand when no one else saw the need! There are now fifteen Pets 4 Vets chapters nationwide. Way to go!!

When I asked Clarissa why she created Pets 4 Vets, she simply said it is her way of saying “Thank You.”

  1. I have a puppy and a dog that is so sweet I also have lots of angel fish and a pet guinie ( I don’t know how to spell that ) pig that is so fluffy.

  2. My room is ALMOST clean!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. This is an Awesome story! I, Ann also have a soft spot for animals. I love them! I would always bug my dad when we would see commercials on TV asking him if we could donate. I even asked my school if we could have a charity for animals and donate it to my local shelter. It all started when my first cat Hannah, died of cancer. I couldn’t believe it. But then we got peanut. she’s happy. Maybe on my birthday, I’ll donate. I care for animals. To see how people treat some animals is sad. Its people like us who care, Who save them. There apart of nature. Maybe I could cross that off my #summerbucketlist.

    (P.S I got my first 2013 doll! My mom asked me if you had boy dolls for im taller. Maybe you guys should make them. Will you?)
    xoxo, Ann

  4. OMG!!!!! I LOVE it jade that’s really awesome. I love animals to they are SO cool, I mean you can teach them almost EVERYTHING!!! Pets 4 vets sounds really great, when I grow up I’m going to be a vet myself and this really inspired me. XOXO

  5. Hey Jade! That is so kool of Clarissa helping all those animals!! I’m TOTES an animal lover and I feel REALLY bad when I see a homeless animal on the street, and can’t help the poor soul!!

    My grandma has a Yorkshire-Terrier, and every time we go to visit her, the Yawkie will chew my mothers DRESS and pull on it like a toy!
    Also, my older brother’s dog will fetch a ball when you throw it, but if you look again the whole thing will be in pieces!

    Clarissa, thanks for helping all those animals.
    You really inspired me.

    Jade, stay kool!!
