Donna Wrabiutza: Administration, Owner, Assistant Trainer and Caregiver
Donna Wrabiutza: Administrative, Caregiver & Trainer Donna is the direct contact for people looking for services with Camp Miracle Paws.
After thirty years in the insurance industry, Zakk’s Mom personally witnessed how a dog changed her son Zakk’s life. Annie gave Zakk the independence he needed to live a more normal life as a young teenager. He could drive with confidence knowing the Annie’s scent training would give him a heads up that Zakk’s blood sugar was fluctuating and he could stop and treat his diabetes and continue driving to his destination without having to take time to recover.
Over the years, Donna has had the opportunity to laugh, learn, teach and cry along side hundreds of other disabled families that Zakk placed his trained service dogs with.
To aid Zakk with his mission to help more dogs stay out of shelters, back in 2016 Donna sold her insurance agency and began reaching out to pet owners who are loving the simplicity and effectiveness of our training lifestyle methods that help their dogs to relax with social etiquette.
