When an individual finds a passion in anything, they must pursue it. Passion brings meaning and purpose to the lives of many people. When the spark of imagination and the depth of passion blend together, one person can make the world a little bit better. In the case of Dr. Jason Nicholas, he found his passion in animals, and used his passion to make the world a better and more informed place. Through his experience in general and emergency animal care, he has become all too familiar with the scene of a heartbroken family as their pet suffers from a condition that could have been avoided. He wanted to spread the knowledge of preventive veterinary medicine to families at home, before the accidents happened. He gathered together his knowledge and wrote “101 Essential Tips You Need to Raise a Happy, Healthy, Safe Dog,” which educates the pet owners with advice on a healthier environment for the pet. After the book was released, Oregonian featured him in an article, and In the News was more than happy to create a custom plaque for him to display proudly. His story and his plaque deserve to be remembered, and to help families and pet owners across the country.
