personal passions are found in family, friends, nature
and the love of the outdoors. Animals are a significant
part of my life. My animal rescue roots began when
I moved to Nashville. The first two weeks I was living
in Nashville, I lost both of my dogs, Mandy and Meisha.
Fortunately, we did recover Meisha, but never recovered
Mandy-my baby! The saying goes "something good
always comes from something bad" this is so true.
While looking for Mandy, I found this wonderful world
of animal rescuers which led me to my calling. Animal
Rescue! In looking for Mandy, I met a lot of selfless
individuals who have given generously both of their
money and time to help save the cast-offs of human
society. A group of us decided that we could best
contribute to the unwanted animals by starting an
organization called Nashville Animal Rescue Co-Op.
The mission of this organization is to collect and
distribute donations to small, struggling pet-rescue
organizations often run by a single individual- whose
time and energy are so devoted to helping animals
in need that they have few resources left over to
campaign for funds themselves. Since we began our
organization we have saved countless animals (dogs/puppies,
cats/kittens, horses, hamsters, pigs and birds-to
name a few) from being euthanized as well as saved
animals from living in despicable, tortuous, and deplorable
conditions. I truly feel like I am making a difference!
We pride ourselves in that 100% of the proceeds go
to the animals!
such a loyal commitment from my clients/consignors
the first location is a wonderful success which afforded
me the opportunity to open two other locations. As
much fun and success that I encountered with the other
locations, my true calling was to help the animal
and go down a new path. This is how “Estrella”,
which means “star” in Spanish, was born.
Estrella is a non-profit 501(c)3 celebrity consignment
store. Please visit our web-site to learn more estrellanashville.com.
I hope you take the opportunity very soon to shop
our stores. Everyday there is something new to see.
