Kimberley is originally from Merritt, British Columbia, Canada but has been calling Fort McMurray, Alberta home for 10+ years. She shares her life with her husband, step son, daughter & furry family member, Rolo. Some of her favorite things include; lululemon headbands, disney, yoga, traveling, cupcakes and social media. Growing up as an old child, animals have played a very important role in her life. She could never repay her childhood dog Sparky for all of the life lessons and support she has given her through some difficult times in her life, including her parents divorce. In 2011, her life changed when a certain German Shepherd entered her life. In 2013, Kimberley took her passion for animals, being a shelter animal advocate & dog mom and launched her own pet blog “Confessions of a Rescue Mom” to inspire others looking to adopt through real life stories and adventures. It also gives an inside look into her life as a dog mom to former shelter dog, Rolo. Did you know that our blog was initially created to assist Rolo’s former shelter; The Fort McMurray SPCA with creating a bigger social media presence.
Her blog grew so rapidly that she started featuring animal shelters from around the world in hopes of trying to help them, just like she did with the FMSPCA. From Puerto Vallarta, Mexico all the way to Australia, we love supporting shelters! Just after that another expansion occurred – pet product reviews. Rolo was super excited for this expansion, as was I. We love that we can help influence people on products. We give honest opinions and feature great photos & videos showcasing these products.
Rolo has accomplished so much in the 5+ years he has been in her life and to think that when he was first adopted, he didn’t even like her! Now he is her shadow & truthfully her best friend. Over the years they have been very lucky to have been featured in various online media and prints. Below she have tried to gather up various things they have been featured in. A big shout out to all those who have helped us share Rolo’s story or chat about our views, Thank You!
