Lauren Theuerkauf

I am an author, wife, pet parent, Certified Professional Pet Sitter, owner of Theuerkauf's Tails Pet Services, and an animal advocate. I love writing stories that will inspire, entertain, and educate. I am very passionate about rescue animals and love taking an active role in my community. I currently volunteer at the APA of Missouri and Stray Rescue of St. Louis. My tripawd dog, Penny, and I help co-teach the humane education classes and help shed light on the importance of adopting differently-abled animals.

Delightfully Different
