Be Inspired By Your Furry Friend This #NationalPetMonth!


It’s National Pet Month (in case you didn’t already know!), and to celebrate, we’re bringing you an exclusive interview with the CEO of SoulPancake, Shabnam Mogharabi!

Since 2009, US production company SoulPancake has been wowing us with their inspiring and life-affirming videos. To celebrate National Pet Month, we’ve pulled one of our favourites from the archives, to remind us just how much our pets can teach us.

We caught up with Shabnam Mogharabi, SoulPancake’s CEO, to find out a little more about what inspired this video:

PP: As a balm for the soul, how powerful do you consider motivational videos/content? or mammalian contact?
SM: My company believes inspirational content is the most emotional and shareable type of content, and we are trying to spread joy with every video we create. We have seen the power of these videos again and again to connect people.

PP: Why do you feel it is important to have a pet in a family?
SM: Pets can teach families patience, responsibility, and the power of unconditional love.  Every loving family should have a pet!

PP: How do pet family members differ from human members? 
SM: Pet family members are a lot furrier!

PP: Do you think relationships with animals can be as powerful as relationships with other humans? 
SM: Absolutely. There are countless stories of animals risking their own lives to help save or protect their humans. That’s a pretty powerful thing.

S.M.Shabnam Mogharabi is the CEO of SoulPancake, actor Rainn Wilson’s award-winning media and entertainment company, based in Los Angeles, that creates inspiring content about the human experience, where she is responsible for overseeing the team that develops more than 35 hours of video content annually with 210M+ views for distribution via digital and traditional platforms.
