Carol North – Carol’s professional writing career began 25 years ago when she pitched a story about adopting children in Latin America to “VISTA: Focus on Hispanics,” a National publication.  That magazine cover story led her to regular travel column assignments for 2 regional newspapers.  In later years, her devotion to animal welfare and rescue led to online and offline writing and editing a monthly newsletter, along with regular columns in local newspapers and a regional magazine.

She is President and Founder of Seniors for Pets, Inc. (www.seniorsforpets.com) which helps needy seniors to receive basic veterinary care for their very important dog or cat.  This non-profit organization is clearly close to the North’s hearts, so it will be supported from a portion of profits received from their various business activities supplemented by small donations from friends.

She is a tireless Pet Nutrition Advocate, writing extensively about health and nutrition on her Facebook Pages, Feeding Fido and Fluffy (www.feedingfidoandfluffy.com) and Seniors for Pets.  Because of her extensive knowledge of pet nutrition she was invited to and serves on the Advisory Board of PureZa for Life.  She writes a weekly blog related to pet nutrition or health of the PureZa for Life website www.purezaforlife.com/blog.  Researching the pet food manufacturing industry and how it is regulated includes regular analysis of the Food & Drug Administration for current news about the pet food industry; the Center for Veterinary Medicine for frequent updates on health-related news about pets; various pet food manufacturers’ websites; and various pet-related trade magazines.

As a tireless writer, Carol has partnered with a friend to create Frugal Florida Seniors (www.frugalfloridaseniors.com)  to provide some interesting stories and assistance to Florida seniors.  She has also authored ebooks on the selection of the perfect pet food for dogs and cats as well companion ebooks related to treats.

Carol has also created several retail businesses, the last, a retail pet supplies store in conjunction with a free-roaming cat adoption center. She is an accomplished researcher as evidenced by her creation of two pet food purchasing eBooks.  She has been associated with successful events, their planning and management.  She spent 3 years running parts of an annual televised fundraiser for Public Television in Nashville, TN, which called upon her skills in writing briefs and television clips that helped sales and thanked vendors.  As Communications Director of an animal rescue organization for 4 years, she wrote weekly columns for local newspapers and organized and chaired numerous successful fundraisers.

If your interest is healthy pets and you need the writing skills of someone passionately committed to pets, contact Carol at carol@seniorsforpets.org.
