Ellie Hansen is an award-winning writer, animal advocate, and founder and CEO of Lovable Pets, Inc., a holistic pet supply company located in Billings, Montana. She holds a degree in Mass Communications and Public Relations from Bloomsburg University. In addition to writing for popular pet magazines, her published works include two books — Laboratory Dogs Rescued: From Test Subjects to Beloved Companions and Fly to Me: Extraordinary Lessons of Life and Death from a Little Dog.
In 2015, Ellie adopted two beagles who were rescued from research laboratories. Helping them recover from the trauma they experienced in the laboratory, and the ethics and morality surrounding the issue of using dogs for painful experiments inspired her to write the book “Laboratory Dogs Rescued: From Test Subjects to Beloved Companions.”
