Creations Petits Paws was started by Dr. Lucie Levy, retired veterinarian, with the human -animal bond in mind. Matching handwoven scarves can be found for people and their beloved pets, or their beloved kids! Individual scarves are also available. Hand-beaded bracelets are another item that carries the business logo, a paw print. Dr. Levy learned to bead and weave in Inuvik, Northwest Territories, where she spent sometimes helping with Arctic Paws. She also volunteered in Peru and Ecuador where she had the chance to spend some times in Otavalo, known for its famous handwoven products.
In 1999, while managing her private small animal hospital in Lafayette, Indiana, Pets and Vets as Partners, Dr. Levy invited a few clients to think about starting a Pet Assisted Therapy group, and Caring Paws was soon started. It is still active and serving the community. Dr. Levy also trained 2 service dogs for her daughter Marianne.
A percentage of the sales will be given for training of service dogs as well as for Veterinary Clinics in the Northwest Territories and with World Vets.
