Qurate Retail Group, a vCommerce leader that includes QVC, HSN, Zulily and several other brands, is using its production resources, television broadcasts and digital platforms to help SHADYPAWS,INC. share its story with millions of consumers nationwide.

“The ShadyPaws Corporation is proud to be selected for Qurate Retail Group’s Small Business Spotlight as they shine a light on Women Owned Businesses during Women’s History Month,” said Founder, Creator Patricia Darquea. We’re grateful that QVC and HSN are supporting 100 entrepreneurs of diverse backgrounds, like ours, in 2022 with on-air and digital exposure!”
The ShadyPaws Corporation is carving positive results within the pet industry, offering a fresh perspective from traditional crates and cages to consumers when traveling or spending time with their dogs in the outdoors. ShadyPaws Pet Travel Shades are light weight and fold nicely into their carry case, making life simple when spending time with dogs on road trips; outdoor family gatherings; trips to the beach; camping; dining out in restaurants or simply placing ShadyPaws on lounge recliners for backyard heat and shade relief! The ShadyPaws “Core Belief” is not just offering consumers a product, but a brand that you can count on to help protect your pets for all outdoor settings, all year around.
“Our 2022 Small Business Spotlight shares the extraordinary stories of diverse entrepreneurs as they inspire and support their customers and communities,” said Suzanne Quigley, Director of Global Corporate Responsibility at Qurate Retail Group. “We’re proud to be part of their success by introducing these small businesses to our national audiences across our retail platforms.”
