Hi, I’m Flavia, I can proudly say we are a women-led, locally owned and operated pet store. We are born and raised in Brazil, all of us. Humans and dogs that you see in this pic! So you might ask yourself, how and when did we end up here, right?!
In 2015 I had an opportunity to move abroad. This unique experience was a gift for me. It was time to reframe my life. I changed priorities. I turned it off the autopilot life mode. I started to live mindfully, learned yoga, and meditation. The self-aware was a game-changer for me. I connected myself to my essence which rekindled the desire to be closer to nature and animals. And if life is made of choices we chose to listen to the inner voice, I was ready to go after an old dream. So, here we are, since January 2020. There is no better place to be. No better place to start our pet business.
This process was a long path, took us more than 1 year and a half to accomplish it. Beginning of 2019 my husband and I came to Boulder, to get the know the city, people, lifestyle. We fell in love immediately. We went back home filled with longing to “be boulder”, the mountains were calling us back! People say that when we have a passion we are filled with hope and spirit. That’s true! When we are passionate about something we come alive, and, if passion is contagious so I really hope that I can share these enjoyment and fulfillment feelings with you at your Neighborhood Pet Store! ⠀
I call my family, Family LIFE, each letter of the word LIFE is the first letter of our name. Lucas (son) - Isabela (daughter) - Flavia (me) - Elton (husband). Our beloved furries are called Jack Bauer (the brown one) and John Lennon (black & white)
