Loving Pet Parents committed to canine and feline longevity.


Rodney Habib

Rodney Habib

Rodney Habib is perhaps the most easily recognized Pet Parent in the modern epoch, due to his establishing the world's fastest growing pet health Facebook page, called Planet Paws.

His work as a digital artist, social influencer, film maker, award-winning blogger, and lecturer, has afforded him the opportunity to interface with Pet Parents across the globe, and most importantly, their furry friends. As a two time Tedx presenter, and director of the Dog Cancer Series documentary, Rodney advocates passionately on behalf of cats and dogs, in order to offer them the best chance to live long and healthy lives. Paws For Change Foundation is very much an expression of the deep caring and love that Rodney has for our canine and feline companions.
