First- the shop name:
By definition, Serendipitous means "occurring or discovered by chance in a happy or beneficial way." No better way could describe the day we randomly walked into our local animal shelter and adopted our first pit bull type dog, which led to our second, which led to fostering 8 more over the years for a local rescue, and then finally foster-failing our third, Hulk, on the day he was scheduled to be euthanized for space due to overcrowding...a community problem, not a shelter problem in this situation. The shelter manager and I desperately contacted every rescue we could think of and when no one came through, I drove down to North Carolina with the intention to just meet him and potentially foster through the shelter. Within a few days of bringing him home, we knew he was never leaving.
Each of those experiences were serendipitous encounters that have brought happiness and fulfillment to our family so it only made sense to use a play on words and create SerendiPitties in honor of my own rescued pit bull type dogs and all that we have fostered along the way.
Now about me:
My name is Lauren and I was born and raised in Eastern Virginia and am the wife of a submariner from Louisiana...a place that may have stolen my heart even more so than my husband did. They say you can leave New Orleans, but New Orleans never leaves you and I absolutely believe that. We have just a few more years until Navy retirement and then we will finally be able to move back "home" to the land of family, football, crawfish, and Mardi Gras.
I am a mom of 2 kiddos and 3 rescued pibbles. I am a passionate rescue dog advocate with a heart for pit bulls and all of the other misunderstood creatures and humans in this crazy world we live in.
As a graphic designer & digital illustrator, I am a creator of all things that make my heart happy... pitties, opossums, animals, NOLA, Mardi Gras, and fishing to name a few.
