In 1999, Wendy after adopting her rescued Russian blue cat, Pasha, along with a rescued white Maltese named Lucky, she used her natural spirit, charm, and business acumen and ventured off to start an animal lifestyle magazine and website called Animal Fair (fairness to animals). In the past year Wendy added a new member to her family Wanda a sparkling red beta fish.
Animal Fair is the premier lifestyle magazine and website for animal lovers in support of fairness to animals and animal rescue. Animal Fair is dedicated to highlighting non-profit animal organizations, giving them the opportunity to tell their inspirational stories and to provide contact information so that our readers can become involved. When Animal Fair launched in 1999, 12 million animals were euthanized in shelters. This year the number has reportedly decreased to 6 million! We don’t take all the credit, but we are doing our part to help support animal rescue! Charlize Theron, Halle Berry, Renee Zellweger, and Drew Barrymore have all graced the cover with their animals.
