In 2015, The Nicavana Project

In 2015, The Nicavana Project was born out of greiving and a need to focus to heal. I gave myself the task to do business the absolute most stubborn way possible, but the RIGHT way to do business. I set out to create sustainable jobs for artisans in dire need of work. I wanted to design my collars as a collaboration with my artisans, reflecting their talent and style. I wanted to buy my textiles from the women weaving them or the families that own small shops selling textiles only in poor communities. I wanted to get leather and hardware in the same towns where my collars were being constructed. I wanted to focus on forgotten cities in forgotten countries, where I can make a DIRECT impact on a community as a whole. My goal has been, and continues to be, to stimulate economic growth - even in just a small town. It's a huge impact on the lives of many, and I can change them for the better by providing opportunities they may have never had. My artisans put a lot of time, effort and sweat into making these collars. I couldn't possibly be prouder of what they do. This project means the world to me. 💖 . . . . . . . . . #thenicavanaproject #collarsforacause #collarscreatingopportunity #shopwithpurpose #madeinnicaragua #madebyhand #fairtrade #topangacanyon #dogsofinstagram #weimaranersofinstagram #causeprojects #rottiesofinstagram #muttsofinstagram  #pibblesofinstagram #adoptdontshop #shepherdsofinstagram #topanga  #gspsofinstagram #danesofinstagram #supportingartisans #dobermansofinstagram #pitbullsofinstagram #dobiesofinstagram #jobcreation #ethicallymade #ethicalshopping #ethicalfashion #ethicalshoppingfordogs #dogcollars

As you can see she is the blonde shepherd that doesn't look or play like she is nearly 14. Thank you @bluebirdbotanicals you have changed our families life.

2 1/2 months ago Keith, an ama

2 1/2 months ago Keith, an amazing volunteer at Almost Home, suddenly passed away. To this day we are still trying to adjust to him not being here. He would come to the shelter Monday-Friday on his lunch hour, sometimes he'd come on the weekend and take one of the dogs on a trip to audubon lake or Cooper river. When Keith passed Jake and Edie, two dogs he adopted from us, we're left behind. They have been staying with us at almost home and we've been helping each other cope with the lose of Keith. We all miss him so much, and our days are just not the same without him. #love #shelterdog #adoptdontshop #opttoadopt #rescueismyfavoritebreed #shelterdogsofig #shelterdogsofinstagram #shelterdogsrock #shelterdog #shepherdsofinstagram #shepherdsofig #houndmix #RIP #gonebutnotforgotten #wemissyou

My newest board and train Nala

My newest board and train Nala has been a bad girl. She has been chasing and biting the horses. This is very dangerous because she could be killed if she is kicked. We are going to teach her to control her pray drive and learn to harness it. We will teach her how to turn it on and off. I am excited to see how great she will do after she learns the tools to control her impulses. Stayed tuned in to see the transformation. #devotiontodogs #shepherdmix #shepherd #malinoismix #malinois #belgianmalinois #belgianmalinoisofinstagram #workingdogs #workingdogsofinstagram #shepherdsofinstagram #rescue #horses #horsesofinstagram #dog #dogstagram #behaviormodification #dogtraining #realworld #herdingdogs #herding #drive

Learning to be a responsible pet owner. Juno had her vet check and while it wasn’t what we wanted we’re accepting it and moving forward with her. The vet found a grade 4-5 heart murmur. Asked his coworker to take a listen and tell him what she heard and she heard the same. Knowing this she could have a short life or long life it’s all in the hands of the big guy upstairs. Her heartworm test came back negative so once she gets normal poop we’ll start her on that. #junobug #vca #murrietavca #vetvisit #dogheartmurmur #adoptdontshop #shepherdsofinstagram #buggabear #responsiblepetowner #vcaanimalhospital #heartmurmur #shesstillours #ohanameansfamily
