The Boo Tiki Story
Mike and Rebecca O’Donnell have been married for 35 years and, during most of this time, they have owned a pet. In March of 2014 their last beloved dog, Axel, succumbed to degenerative spinal disease at the advanced age of 14. As their sweet boy grew increasingly fragile they looked to the future to find a memorable way of honoring the way he, and all their pets, had so deeply touched their lives.As the medical bills grew the O’Donnell’s realized how very fortunate they were to be able to pay for all of Axel’s medical care. They were able to make decisions based on what they thought was medically best versus what they could afford…something many people are unable to do. This revelation led them to approach Dr. Lisa, of HousePaws Mobile Veterinary Service, for ideas on how they could honor Axel and aid others in need at the same time. Having been a life-long friend to the O’Donnell’s, and having watched her grow from a teenager into a successful businesswoman, they knew Lisa’s passion to save animals in crisis would be just what they were looking for to bring their ideas to fruition- and so the Boo Tiki Fund was born.
