Melvin "Buzz" Miller of Gladwyne, Pa., gave up a long, successful career as a business and real estate attorney to devote his life to pets. First he opened a pet shop called Buzzy's Bow Wow Meow, which specializes in high-quality holistic pet products, and educating the public about the importance of the animal/human bond. Buzz then decided to launch a non-profit organization called People/Animals = Companions Together (PACT) which facilitates and implements programs that benefit both pets and humans. Among the organization's achievements is a program that finds foster homes for the pets of deployed military personnel. Buzz may no longer be making the big bucks he commanded when he was a full-time lawyer, but he's far richer in spirit as a result of his involvement with making the world a better place for pets and the people who love them.
