Beth Albus was raised in a pet friendly home. From early on, Beth's parents instilled in her the notion that a commitment to animals is a serious matter. Any pet was fine as long as 3 principals were followed: (1) Know your pet - research required, (2) Take care of your pet - responsibility required, and (3) Keep your commitment to your pet - it is not disposable. During college, Beth began to volunteer her time and efforts to Animal Rescue groups. But she noticed a disturbing trend. Large dogs didn't seem to be getting a fair shake compared to smaller animals. This idea grew into establishing her own Dog Rescue - Companions Forever. All dogs and cats are eligible 'companions forever', of course, but Beth's emphasis is on large dogs.
