After many years designing for large, well-known retailers, Kane decided to break out on her own to launch her unique vision for a children’s garment line not long after the 9/11 terrorist attacks in New York. “After 9/11, I— like many other Americans—found myself re-evaluating what was most important insofar as my own life, goals and values. I thought back to how many years I had already spent running the rat race, living life in a big fast city while working for others. I knew then it was time to leave The Big Apple and seek out or create new experiences and goals for myself both professionally and personally.”

If you or a loved one were experiencing some kind of trauma, you would probably know exactly who to call or where to go.Now, imagine that this loved one is your beloved pet, who is just as much a part of the family as your Aunt Esther. You cannot exactly drive to the nearest emergency room and ask them to treat Fido or Fluffy like the person you think they are. There is one major reason for this: the ER personnel are not trained in animal emergency critical care. This is where The LifeCentre’s Animal Emergency Critical Care Practice comes in. This is exactly the number that needs to be on your refrigerator under your doctor’s number and under your pet’s veterinarian’s number; this is your pet’s 911.
