Hello, I'm Lisa Willard. I am the owner of Paws Pleas, LLC. Several years ago I graduated from high school and with the help and encouragement from family and friends I embarked on this Paws Pleas business venture.
I was born with cerebral palsy and am not able to walk and talk like most people; however, I am able to think. Over the last 21 years I have had family, friends, and teachers who have believed in me and helped find adaptive technological devices that allow me to use the abilities I do have. I work from my motorized wheel chair, which I absolutely enjoy driving when the opportunity arises. My wheelchair is fitted with a head support and head switch. The head switch is what provides me the ability to operate various electronic devices like my wheelchair, my DynaVox dedicated speaking device, our sewing machine, adaptive scissors, and food processor. My switch is plugged into such devices utilizing switch interface technology. Once plugged in I can control these devices. My latest favorites are to chose which of our products to feature on our Facebook page, and then to play music from my library of CDs on my DynaVox. Watch out world, here I come!
Several goals for Paws Pleas are: 1) Provide you with quality treats your beloved pets are begging for, 2) Provide myself with employment which utilizes my ability to run switch operative devices, and 3) Hopefully one day provide employment opportunities to others in my community.
Working to open the doors of Paws Pleas has been a very exciting adventure. We officially opened our doors for business in November 2009. This business is operated from my home with the help of family and friends. Together we have come up with a variety of treats your pets are begging for. Please enjoy shopping with us and let us know how you like our products. Pictures of your pet enjoying Paws Pleas paraphernalia are always a special treat we enjoy receiving.
Thank you for shopping with us.
