Eva Armstrong made the decision to leave her Wall Street job so she could rescue dogs from kill shelters.
Before starting the rescue, Eva admits she was a workaholic and was focused largely on money. She found her drive to make money unfulfilling and knew in her heart that she wanted to be with dogs. This realization would later lead to the creation of Eva’s Play Pups.
Located in Pennsylvania, Eva’s Play Pups is a 52-acre farm that hosts dogs for boarding, daycare, and allows rescue dogs the space and environment to heal.
Eva brings dogs from Brooklyn four times per week to her rescue where they’re free to run, swim, play, and rest. It’s a new beginning for many of the dogs, after coming from harsh shelter conditions.
It can be hard on Eva emotionally. There are always dogs that she didn’t have the chance to save – but she tries to focus on the work she’s doing and the dogs she’s helping.
Eva seems to be really happy in her decision to quit her Wall Street career and open the dog rescue. It’s not hard to tell many dogs are happy she made that decision, too.
