Hi! I'm Caryn. I started Paws for Peace, LLC because I love animals and teaching and wanted to find a way to combine them both.  I have dedicated many years of my life to rescuing animals and teaching kids about the importance of treating all living things with respect and kindness.  Animals, and their stories, provide a safe and fun way for children to strengthen their prosocial skills.  My goal is to help build a world filled with tolerance and respect for others while embracing our differences. 


Let me introduce you to my family!  My husband Matt and I live in Bethesda, MD with our twins, Ethan and Sam, 2 dogs and a ferret. All of our dogs have been rescued.  Ollie (the black poodle) was born blind.   Ruffles (the gray one) came to us in desperate need of love and attention.  He is coming out of his shell more and more each day.
