It all started BECAUSE…
…of a pup named Charlie
As a puppy, Charlie returned to the pound repeatedly, having four homes, and was almost euthanized because no one could handle him. In 2014, Colleen met him when he was 10 months old at a NYC kill shelter, realized he was deaf, and immediately adopted and trained him.
Charlie now knows 50 signs in American Sign language (ASL) and is a therapy dog for local hospitals. After numerous inquiries about their transformation, Colleen started getting offers to book gigs in New York Fashion Week (NYFW), with the Huffingston Post, Buzzfeed, and numerous commercials and major magazines. Charlie started making thousands of dollars from paid promotions and appearances.
With Charlie’s rise in internet fame, earning us $46,000, Colleen got plugged into this world with animal who were far more famous. A few saw what Charlie was doing and wanted to do it too. That’s when Colleen had the idea to help them in print/film, manage their careers and develop a niche into an industry.
As Colleen learned more and more about the animal influencer industry, she realized how much individuals who were in a similar position, were overwhelmed when brands contacted them. What should they do? What were they worth? How did they know if they were being ripped off?
This was the beginning of Pets on Q.
At Pets on Q, we handle everything from contract review and negotiations, business transactions, and services rendered. We capitalized on this untapped market and are maintaining our spot as the industry leader in paid promotions, book deals, commercials, TV spots, appearances, merchandise and everything animal celebrity related.
Our motto is, “to making the world a better place one animal at a time.” Pets on Q donates a portion of all its profits to help support shelters and rescue groups across the world. We most recently helped to rescue a female Dalmatian from South Korea. She is now in the U.S. post surgery and being fostered by a loving family.
