Britt is a resident of Ontario, Canada, who lives with her husband John, their three rescue dogs (Daviana, Indiana, and Lucifer), and two rescue cats (Pippen and Jinx). Britt has been actively involved in animal rescue activities for more than 15 years. She has volunteered, fostered, and advocated for various organizations across Canada and the US. This blog is a pet-focused blog founded by Britt to explore life as a rescue pet parent. Britt, a 30-something wife, and pet mom runs her own business as a digital/social media marketer, freelance writer, and blogger, while also working from home.

Primary objective of this blog is to connect pet lovers and owners worldwide. Its articles cover a wide range of topics, including funny pet pictures, heartwarming stories, news updates, pet care tips, and other valuable knowledge. The blog aims to provide readers with a comprehensive one-stop shop for everything related to the world of pets.

Britt started blogging professionally with her blog, Alternatively Speaking, which focuses on "alternative living and outdoor travel." However, she realized that she was gradually posting more and more content related to her true passion, her pets. Additionally, she noticed that people were engaging and enjoying the pet-related content on her blog.

Instead of cluttering her original blog with content that does not align with its focus, Britt decided to branch out and create a separate blog entirely dedicated to all things pet-related. As a result, Shed Happens was born, a secondary blog that solely focuses on pets.
