1. Founding story: Share a story about the "Aha!" moment that led the founder(s) to get started or the story of how you saw the potential for this project to succeed.
There was a woman I have met, She's old and got hospitalized. After all the medication performed to her, She was discharged to go home for recovery. On their way home the Old Lady saw a loving dog wagging its tail at her side without knowing each other. Apparently, the owner of the dog apologizes to the old lady as they needed to go further for a walk. Hence, the family of the old lady knows that she loves a dog so much they ask the owner secretly to have some time and visit their house to surprise the old lady. As expected the owner of the dog agreed and consider it as part of the therapy that can be offered to the old lady to make her recovery fast as it (the dog) gives so much energy to the sick. I was so amazed witnessing the moment.
2. The problem: What problem are you helping to solve?
The Sick people, Demotivated, Uninspired people, and those out of positivity in life.
3. Your solution: How are you planning to solve this problem? Share your specific approach.
There are lots of people who starts losing their faith and demotivated at some point in their lives. I wish to have a place where pets are just happy to watch and can put a smile on people's faces. I know the positive energy that pets can bring into them. With a proper training to each and every pet, I believe that the pet-human bond can be more innovative ways to see what to improve and what to execute activities that will help the organization. I have seen many bonding moments of a pet-human where deep mutual understanding happens. sometimes, when a person needed someone to talk to and no one is available to be with. it is really a good feeling any way speaking to a pet. releasing all the negative things in life and ending it up with positivety without even noticing it.
