Five Freedoms Photography

Joanne Wetzel is a Pet + Rescue Photographer at her company Five Freedoms Photography. She specializes in heartfelt pet portraiture for crazy obsessed pet parents and loves to help pet parents curate custom artwork of their pet they’ll adore for years to come.


Using those same skills and abilities, Joanne lends her photography services to rescues in need across North Carolina to help more animals, especially harder-to-adopt, be seen, valued, and loved among the millions of animals available for adoption. It is her goal through rescue photography to reduce animal overpopulation, euthanasia, and homelessness in our state.


With more than 300 pups and three years under her belt, Joanne has photographed and worked with many pups who are high-energy, shy, deaf, blind, elderly, or deal with other physical limitations. In other words, she’d love the honor to photograph your unique pet, too! 


Joanne is also a member of the International Pet Photographers Club, a HeartsSpeak Artist, and a WakeGov Pets volunteer. 



HuggleHounds was founded in 2009 by Julie Krauss and Bob Flynn, industry experts with over 50 plus combined years of experience in the pet category. Julie and Bob had one goal - to create the most unique, design driven and highly-styled

North Bee

Welcome to The North Bee. My name is Amy, beekeeper, crazy wax crafter, wife, mother and grandmother with a passion for honey bees and natural products. As a beekeeper I fell in love with not only the bees themselves but the by-products of their hive. My business blossomed the first year I rendered honeycomb wax into useable beeswax and made useful items for home and body.


Wall Things

At Wall Things and Shelf Stuff we love creating high quality products that make you laugh. We started in
2019 with a laser engraver and a small etsy shop and haven't looked back. We have since grown into our current store in downtown Westby which is mainly stocked with our creations.


Made by Cleo

Leslie Gray Harmon, who has a professional design background + a passion for textiles, took matters into her own hands to make Cleo a new generation of breakaway cat collars with a carefully sourced mix of hardware and materials that would not only hold up to his antics & claws, tug-resistant enough to not unclasp too easily while remaining safe & functional, and also stylish enough to suit his (and his mom's) personality.


The Foggy Dog

Our mission is to create pet products like you've never seen before. We obsess over each and every
detail, and all of our materials are hand-picked for design, comfort, texture and durability. Made in America with Love We proudly handcraft our products in the USA. Our production partners are family-owned businesses, where skilled craftspeople are paid fair wages. Almost everything is made in our hometown of San Francisco and we're thrilled to support small-batch manufacturing. Our dog beds and toys are stuffed with 100% recycled fiber spun from plastic bottles that would otherwise be in the landfill. We minimize waste by using recycled materials, repurposed fabric scraps, and natural fabrics wherever possible to create products you can be proud to have in your home
