Elizabeth Menegon - Hands2Paws

Our Founder

Elizabeth Menegon is the visionary behind Hands2Paws, an innovative app that aims to revolutionize the dog ownership experience. Recognizing the need to address the growing trend of purchasing the wrong dog from the wrong source during the COVID-19 pandemic, Elizabeth set out to change this narrative. She wanted Hands2Paws to be a valuable resource to educate consumers on choosing the right purebred dog for their lifestyle.

Hands2Paws utilizes questionnaire and the algorithm will match individuals with their ideal breed. Users can then click on their chosen dog and be directed to the breed-specific association website for further information on the breed and potential litters. Additionally, the app offers an option for rescuing a dog from a shelter or rescue organization.

Since its launch in October 2022, Hands2Paws has gained significant traction, with thousands of downloads in the USA, Canada, and the UK. Breeders who share the app’s commitment to canine welfare have embraced the platform as it streamlines the pre-screening process for potential buyers.

Elizabeth’s love for animals and dedication to their well-being served as the driving force behind the creation of Hands2Paws. As a proud owner of Vanessa, an Italian Greyhound, she has become a sought-after figure, sharing her vision and journey through interviews on podcasts across Canada, the UK, and the US.

Hands2Paws stands as a beacon of hope, guiding dog lovers toward responsible breeders and ultimately making a positive difference in the lives of both pups and their human companions. The belief of Hands2Paws is that not every breed is for everyone.
