WHERE DOES 'AAPETPEOPLE' COME FROM?
AAPETPEOPLE is inspired by the countless individuals I have the pleasure of working with in the fashion industry. A common thread in many of my relationships is the unwavering love + adoration we have for our pets. I was very shy when I began my journey in Fashion, and the moment I found out I could often times break the ice, and find common ground with these people I looked up to, by discussing our pets it felt as though an entire world opened itself to me.
There are over 70 million homeless cats and dogs in the United States alone, and we are determined to make a change in these numbers by supporting animal rescue work one purchase at a time. We also feel that pets too deserve the luxuries offered to people. We are dedicated to eco-friendly and sustainable practices in all aspects of product development & production, and will go above and beyond to make you and your pet happy.
MEET THE FOUNDER
Hello, my dear! I am thrilled you are here, allow me to share a bit about myself and what led me to founding AAPETPEOPLE... my name is Anneliese, I am a TX born and raised, now NY-based model, actor, dancer, musician, artist, entrepreneur, and, most of all, a pet lover. Growing up, I was painfully shy, and incredibly lacking in confidence. I began modeling and acting when I was 12-ish, and working on sets with individuals I never dreamt I’d have the pleasure of working with, all be it intimidating. These experiences were exciting and nerve-racking at the same time. I found that if I was able to somehow slide in the question, "do you have pets?" to those around me, and find some common ground, all of a sudden the ice was broken! This simple question has put me at ease countless times and made me realize that the individuals who were initially so intimidating were also like me and that many had pet connections like I do.
Both of my parents work as veterinarians, and I basically grew up in the back of a vet hospital! Fostering puppies and kittens with my siblings are some of my fondest early memories, and I have always had a deep connection and calling to pet rescue. My mother is the first person to push me when I need it, and hold me up when I need it. She’s been my inspiration for the woman I want to become, and her unwavering leadership and adoration for the pets and people she serves never fails to inspire me.
As a full-time model/actor, and pet lover, I decided to connect my two worlds. AAPETPEOPLE is the uniting of fashion, people, and pets. Creative relationships, pet connections, and animal rescue are the motivation behind my brand, AAPETPEOPLE.
I credit my love of animals to my mother who is an entrepreneur of sorts and a veterinarian. Both of my parents work as veterinarians, so I grew up around all kinds of animals. Fostering puppies and kittens with my siblings are some of my fondest early memories, and I have always had a deep connection with pet rescue.
