My name is VeeVee Stolle and I love my dogs, kids, and husband…in that order. FurLyfe is what happens when a dog-loving business graduate gives up on trying to find a job in a new town, while pregnant, during a global pandemic! I combined my passion for dogs and desire for community and built FurLyfe. We are a social media platform committed to all things dog with unique search features that allow users to connect with their dog’s litter, breed, and local community.
We are based out of Virginia Beach, but I was inspired to create the site after moving to Fredericksburg Virginia in 2019. I was in a new town, with no connections and it was really hard to find things to do, especially activities that involved our dogs. A common sight everywhere I went was people walking their dogs. I wanted to connect with my new community and socialize my furbabies.
Also, with rescue dogs, we tried guessing their breeds for years until we got DNA tests. Ever wonder what a Siberian Husky, Cocker Spaniel, Brittany, and Beagle mix dog looks like or a Great Dane, Chihuahua, Chow Chow, Terrier mix dog? These are the breeds that make up our dogs Leonidas and Millie! FurLyfe allows users to create unique mixed breed groups that can be searched by other users.
In addition to connecting with our local community we were always curious as to what our dog’s littermates were up to and if they were close by. FurLyfe allows rescues and breeders to build litter specific groups, so that owners can stay connected with the litter and the rescue/breeder.
We want to be a tool for doggy walks, fun conversations, and puppy meetups for all our users. With these goals in mind, my husband and I started building our platform one google search at a time. We hope you enjoy it!
