We had the good fortune of connecting with Brandi Perse and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Brandi, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
After having both my boys, I really felt the need to have something that was my own. Something that allowed me to stay independent and strong within myself. I also wanted to be able to give back in some way. Working with abused and neglected animals has given me huge purpose. It shaped who I was and I truly feel it led me to my true self. There is no way to describe the joy and pride I feel when I see defeated animals end up flourishing and being treated with the love and compassion they deserve.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
A little Rescue was started to give every animal the opportunity to come back from their past experiences. That could be abuse, neglect, medical conditions, etc. We promise to keep them until they find the right homes. Sometimes, their home ends up being with us. Often times, medical conditions prevent them from being adopted. Right now we have a lot of older and non rideable horses who most likely will stay in our sanctuary. They usually end up being my favorites.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I live in Malibu with my family. So I’d definitely say hikes are pretty incredible and right in our backyard. Also there are some great restaurants on the ocean.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I couldn’t do anything without the strength and hard work our trainer puts in every day. Frida and I share the same values and goals for these animals. She is a miracle worker and loves each and every rescue as if they were her own. I’m lucky to have her and call her my friend.
