DiAnna Pfaff-Martin began her journey helping animals in 1996 by writing “The Community Animal Report,” for the local homeowner’s association newsletter. It quickly grew into a city-wide publication with a classified section that promoted “Pre-Loved Pets” searching for new homes.
The twelve page “Community Animal Report” could be found in local vet hospitals. The publication helped raise awareness of local shelter animals needing homes and engaged veterinarians willing to discount surgeries and procedures which launched her philanthropic career.
The needs of her community combined with her passion were recognized by the local paper which published her weekly column for eighteen years telling of local animal’s needs. Her philanthropic efforts developed into the charity known as Community Animal Network.
Currently, she teaches pet-parenting classes, consults on feline behavior, and offers internships to aspiring veterinarians teaching about cat care; how to administer pills and other medications, and to give injections, too.
