Owner of Happy Paws

Teresa Cutler, owner of Happy Paws, Inc. is originally from Madison, WI. During her travels she had the opportunity to visit many amazing places. It was during these travels that Teresa discovered her love for the west and the mountains. After many years, the mountains had called enough and Teresa left her home to follow her dream to work with dogs in the mountains of Montana. After deciding to settle in the lovely city of Missoula, Teresa found her dream property and began developing what would become Happy Paws, Inc.
