About

My passion is sharing joy that comes from my own creativity.

Greyhounds have been changing my life so much in GREYT ways. November 22, 2009, I adopted my very first Greyhound girl, Kei Banana, through one of local adoption groups. Until I adopted her, Kei was overlooked many times and she waited very patiently for her forever home for a long time. When I first met Kei, I saw her and heard her whisper voice - she told me I was chosen as a human mom for her. I never owned any animals by myself in my life - it was HUGE step for me but I knew it must have been something SPECIAL... and made my decision right away. That was how my life journey with Kei had begun.

Now, in 2019 - we currently own three beautiful greyhounds; a 7-year-old boy Finn whom I adopted in November 2013 while my second greyhound Luka, whom I adopted in February 2013, was still with me. In 2016 our household has expanded: I'm married to a wonderful husband who is passionate as I am, about animal & human rights and greyhound rescue. We adopted Aubrey, a tiny 50lbs. greyhound girl in July 2016, who became Finn's little sister. Then, our newest addition, Prince, whom we have adopted in November 2018. He is a beautiful 6 years old boy.. who may not "see" things visually as he is blind, but oh boy, he is full of joy - extremely intelligent, happy boy whose tail is always wagging. We are so grateful that we now have such beautiful pack in the house who bring the most joyful moments together to us.

Kei and Luka unfortunately departed to their next lifetime because of cancer took them, at very young age. Losing my two beautiful furbabies at such early age was extremely difficult for me to overcome - I don't think I'd never overcome; however, I was able to realize my life mission through the most painful experiences - I pledged to devote my life for the sake of saving Greyhounds' life & other rescued animals, and becoming their voice by taking my own unique actions for their rights. My four babies - Kei, Luka Finn, and Aubrey are such inspiration to me.

Here I am, I am able to my "dream" comes true - starting my own small etsy shop where I could share my creativity with my customers by making handmade collars and by sharing the joy with my friends & customers. Sharing my joy that comes from my own unique actions and being "their" voice by making collars - I now surely realize this IS my own mission that I can proudly say it is what I am really passionate about for saving innocent animals' lives, not only Greyhounds but also all of the adoptable animals.

As an owner of retired racing greyhounds & so passionate about them, COLLARS are always one of my biggest interests (aka addiction!) - I started my etsy shop May 2014 and since then I have been very passionate about what I do; making collars!

As a graphic designer, I apply my detail-oriented eyes & how to choose fabrics/trims designs/compositions to my sewing projects - trying to find unique patterns & designs of fabric, as well as, unique jacquard trims. In addition, I make every single effort to ensure my products' safety, durability, and attention to details and "quality" & "uniqueness" itself - all of my collars and other products are 100% HANDMADE BY MYSELF.

Additional policies and FAQs
PLEASE NOTE:

Please note while Fabcollarhounds states its return policy for all products against defects upon its arrival, Fabcollarhounds cannot guarantee or warranty against wear and tear. How fast a collar or leash wears depends on how to use it. If you have a particularly rough and tumble dog, that enjoy spending days out in the sun as opposed to snoozing on the sofa, daily worn collars are going to wear faster. If you have any questions regarding the matter or anything you'd like to question about collars at my shop, please contact me BEFORE placing your order.
