Love and Care Until the Very End

January 01, 2015

Julie has worked with animals for over 15 years in a local veterinary clinic.  She owns horses on land she has next to her home.  Over the years she noticed a need for a pet crematorium.  She decided she would use the land to operate a business that will provide this service in a loving and caring way.

Julie met with Advisor Paul Howard of the Angelo State University • Small Business Development Center for assistance with this project. She needed capital so Paul suggested she work on a business plan to present to her banker. Julie spent time working on the plan and received encouragement and help from the SBDC.

Julie says, “I was extremely overwhelmed with the whole business plan. Paul guided me through the process and made it seem almost effortless. He attended the DRC meeting and took notes to help guide me through. I knew nothing but with the SBDC’s help I made it through the whole process and am now up and running! Paul called on a regular basis to check in and see if I needed any help with anything. I love what they do.”

Handle with Care PPC is now providing special assistance to grieving pet owners in the Concho Valley. It has helped the economy by creating two jobs.
