What type of pet business are you a part of?

Pet Connection Magazine is a locally owned and operated full color newsprint magazine focusing on local pet related businesses, non-profits and rescues. We are published every other month, advertiser supported and free to the public. Available the past 5 years in the South Sound (Tacoma, Puyallup, Olympia and surrounding region, south to Centralia and Shelton, we will be producing and distributing a North Sound Edition (Seattle and north to Everett and East of Seattle, Bellevue, Kirkland, Redmond and Issaquah) We aim to educate and entertain the pet loving public, and advocate for local pet related non-profits and rescues. Our Events section (available in each printed issue and also online) is always full of great "happenings" for pets and their owners. Businesses and non-profits alike can send PCM their events and PCM will post them FREE of charge. We have a blast working, meeting wonderful people, enjoying their pets and focusing on our local pet community!

What is your role in the business?

Editor and article writer. As part owner, my role includes joint financial decision making, community relations, printing and distribution input, and day-to-day operations of any small business. My business partner, Sarah J Bous-Leslie shares in all the above, plus does our photography, ad design and magazine layout...Wow! Is she ever busy! I hope she will be able to attend some Puget Sound Pet Business meetups in the future as well.
