AniMail is a selection of pet poems which you can download as a picture and send via email (or print them out onto your own creation). They are specifically for people who love animals and/or work with animals (ie vets to give to their clients). There are a variety of cards to choose from, such as:
Any pet lover can relate to losing an animal, either through sickness or merely their beloved pet not coming home one day. I had that happen on more than one occasion when I was younger and the despair I felt was tremendous.
Years later I realised that should someone be going through that same despair, there were very few cards available to buy. So, I wrote some poems and created a line of cards called AniMail. Originally I was going to have them printed and sell to vets/card retailers, but that would limit the cards to those who live in NZ only (as I am only a small business). Then I thought, 'Well, I already send them as poems to my own friends and family, and not many people use the postal system these days,' so that is where the idea originated to sell them online.
The artwork is courtesy of a very talented Kiwi artist, Marie Ockleford, and I think she's done a fantastic job: https://www.facebook.com/marieockleford
