Millions of dogs and cats are surrendered to shelters or abandoned each year in the United States. Many of these pets are cared for by Senior Citizens and the home-bound. One large reason for surrender is due to the owner’s financial inability to care for their pets. Sam’s Hope is dedicated to stopping this heartbreaking cycle, and help “Keep Pets and Their Families Together,” for the benefit of both the pet and the pet owner.
We at Wiggles n Wags fully believe in Sam’s Hope, and have proudly worked to donate, sponsor, and support their cause for three years (and counting!)
To date, Sam’s Hope has:
- Distributed 125,000+ lbs. of pet food
- Fed 6,500+ pets
- Awarded 125 Veterinary Care grants
- Helped 125 Pets of the homebound elderly receive home-delivered food & supplies
- Saved countless lives since July 2013

We at Wiggles n Wags love the No Pull Freedom Harness from 2 Hounds Design. No more pulling or yanking, and it keeps you and your pet safe.

Amy Sieberer has been drawing portraits for 30 years, and says that the mystery of the human image, and those of beloved animals, still continues to amaze her. She attended the Tyler School of Art to focus on developing her ability to capture her subjects in two dimensions. Though she strives for a rough form of realism, she also incorporates a look of hand-crafted individuality to her artwork.
By constantly striving to find “the spirit behind the face” in the portraits she creates, developing a personal relationship with her clients is very important to Amy, and developing a connection to her subjects is paramount.
By using your photographs, Amy creates a graphite pencil portrait. Each portrait is then mounted on foam core in a white, acid free mat, and sealed in a clear archival acetate envelope. All of Amy’s graphite portraits are custom made and hand drawn, which is what makes them both personalized and unique. Amy is also able to create a combined portrait based on separate photographs to bring multiple pets and people together into one group portrait for you.
