South Florida business woman and pet industry entrepreneur, Mona Straub of Just Fur Fun® has been nominated for the 2013 WIPIN Pet Industry Woman of the Year Award. WIPIN is Women in the Pet Industry Network and is an influential networking group that provides pet professionals a place to grow, give and connect.

“Winning the WIPIN Woman of the Year award would not only be a personal thrill and a great business boost, but it will give me a fantastic platform to give back and share information about important causes. Networking and sharing resources with other women business owners is vital to my business and professional growth and this award would really give me the chance to supercharge connections,” explains Mona.
