About Us

Sloppy Kiss Cards is based in Vancouver, BC, Canada. It was founded in 2006 by avid pet lover Nicole Stocker. After spending several years working at Microsoft Nicole felt she was barking up the wrong tree and that it was time to combine her digitally developed sensibilities with her love of animals. In June of 2006 Sloppy Kiss Cards became a bone-a-fide business. First it was just dogs, then cats were added in March 2007 and as of April 2009 a whole new crew of pets have joined the Sloppy Kiss Cards family including: horses, birds, fish, rabbits, pigs, monkeys, chickens, frogs, and more! Finally, in 2011 a Pet Business Ecard Service was added to provide pet businesses with a unique and fun way to keep in touch with their clients.

Nicole likes to think of Sloppy Kiss Cards as the post office for a global community of pet lovers. Read what our members have to say about Sloppy Kiss Cards. Also be sure to check out our Facebook page to read even more comments.

To honor the immeasurable contribution our canine and feline companions make, Nicole donates part of each ecard membership to the Petfinder Foundation, a foundation that helps homeless pets find loving homes.

The inspiration behind Sloppy Kiss Cards is the many pets - past and present - in Nicole's life:

Brusier
Bruiser
A stout black lab totally ruled by instinct. Bruiser never met a stick he didn't like. When sticks became a little mundane, he found a greater challenge in retrieving loose logs from a fast flowing river. In the company of his human family, his loyalty knew no bounds, but as soon as they were out of the room, it was his appetite that became boundless. His crowning achievement was a kitchen mission where he located, relocated and ate 21 hot dogs from off the kitchen counter.
Max
Max
A svelt and muscular yellow lab, Max was seemingly half fish, half dog. His valiant attempts to fetch stones in the ocean found him burying his head under water and consuming unhealthy amounts of sand. He had a preference for long sticks. He also had a preference for latching on to those long sticks right in the middle so that he could take out humans with both sides of the stick while he galloped along the beach. After a long day of swimming, Max could be found in the "classic" curl position. Later on in sleep, he would have visibly vivid dreams. We always thought he was dreaming of impossible fetch scenarios.
Riley
Riley
A yellow lab with a head the size of Jupiter attached to a body that is as wide as it is long. Unlike his distant brother Max, Riley is not much for the water (barring some kind of milk bone cargo ship accident in the harbor). He is a purely social dog known to smile with his fangs. His tank-like stature is complimented by a baseball bat for a tail that "accidentally" knocks food from low lying tables.
Sophie
Sophie
Brains to her brother Oscar's brawn, Sophie is a pretty black and white cat with very particular tastes. She can watch for hours from the many high perches she has claimed for herself, waiting for the perfect time to make her move on one of her many colorful toys. She responds very kindly to kitty caviar and very poorly to nail clippers.
Oscar
Oscar
Osky is a tall cat and visitors could easily be forgiven to mistake him for a Dalmatian (or panther). He has, at two years old, yet to tire of chasing moving objects at the other end of his rainbow tunnel. He also enjoys chasing his sister around the house, at least until the point where she asserts herself, at which time Oscar will happily retire to the windowsill where he keeps a tight watch on all the neighborhood activity.
Henry
Henry
The latest addition to the family, Henry came home at eight weeks as black as Bruiser and even more tank-like than Riley. While still exceedingly young, Henry already shows a talent for eating the inedible. Known for protesting when taken on a walk until the mood strikes him to start walking, Henry is constantly in search of another stranger to tell him how cute he is. At home, he busies himself enduring the taunts and teases of Sophie and Oscar (the cats). When he has had enough, he chases them from the room so that he can play with and eventually destroy their cat toys.
