Donna Raney moved to Atlanta in 1987. As an Army brat, she was born in Paris, France and moved multiple times through Europe and the U.S. At the age of 9, her roots were planted on a 52 acre farm in Arkansas in the valley of Petit Jean State Park. She and her family cultivated many gardens, raised cattle, chickens, and pigs. She was responsible for feeding the livestock before and after school in addition to working in the gardens. Donna always had pets and a love for animals. Her family lived off the land by consuming what they harvested as well as selling their livestock at state auctions. Their grass fed beef was derived from heritage breeds of livestock which were nurtured from calves. Their beef, pork, free range chickens and eggs were free of antibiotics, steroids and hormones. Their food was of the highest quality that you could put on your table. Her dogs were fed all natural diets and always remained healthy.
As a young adult, Donna worked in the corporate arena in the airline and auto industry for 20 years with her pet sitting, dog training and web design business on the side. She was a webmaster for a female country music artist for 10 years, and was awarded a Commemorative RIAA Certified Gold Album in 2006. Her pet sitting & dog training company did so well that she decided to part ways with corporate America and web design to give her full attention to her true passion. She owned and operated Pet Attention, LLC on a full time basis for 7 years. Donna always dreamed of owning a brick and mortar business where she could share her passion for pets and experience with natural nutrition in order to help people to make better choices for their pets’ health and longevity.
Jennifer Andreae, MS, PT, DPT, CCRT has lived in Atlanta since 1986. She is originally from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. She is a Physical Therapist and a Certified Canine Rehabilitation Therapist. She has always had a deep love for animals, especially dogs. Jennifer received her Bachelor’s degree of Physical Therapy from the University of Miami. She earned her Master’s degree of Physical Therapy from Georgia State University, and completed her Master’s thesis on exercise in an underwater treadmill system versus exercising on a land-based treadmill. She received her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Arcadia University, and her Certification as a Canine Rehabilitation Therapist from The Canine Rehabilitation Institute.
Jennifer first came to Atlanta to work as a Physical Therapist at the Shepherd Center, treating spinal cord injuries and acute brain injured individuals. She has worked in sports medicine and with amputees, but has spent the majority of her professional career in an outpatient, orthopedic setting. Jennifer became interested in rehabilitating dogs years ago when her black Lab underwent surgery for hip dysplasia. It seemed only natural to apply her human physical therapy skills to rehabilitate her fur baby pre and post-operatively. The rest is history…
In her spare time Jennifer (Dr. J) enjoys watching college football, going on fishing trips, gardening, attending Braves’ games, and taking neighborhood walks with her dogs. She earned her certification as a fly casting instructor from the Federation of Fly Fishers and possesses three World Record salt water awards from the International Game Fish association.
