About the FOUNDER and his MISSION
The Founder and his Mission:
By Barbara Kelly
“Doctor Wooff and Nurse Meow™” are the creation of Henry Carlton, a German-born American who now lives in Florida. His father was a native from Illinois and his mother is from a beautiful German town near Stuttgart. While he was growing up in Germany , Henry enjoyed skiing, swimming, music, reading and all kinds of outdoor activities. But Henry’s real passion was always the well-being of animals. As a young man he raised a litter of German Boxers and since has not been seen without dogs. Henry has a long history of service and caring for others. In lieu of military service in Germany, Henry opted to serve as an emergency driver and EMT, every weekend, for ten years. He finished his Bachelor’s degree in Business and soon after became very successful working with international companies such as Sunkist, Cadbury Schweppes, Holland House, Remy Martin, Pernod Ricard, Vaihinger , Robert Leicht AG and Euro Brands.
After establishing multiple successful companies, he was invited to share his success story as a motivational speaker, focusing through seminars and weekly workshops on teaching his students how to become successful in business and in life with goal setting, time management and perseverance;
By 1994, Henry was a self-made multi-millionaire and had learned some important life lessons along the way. Money became less of a driving force and he decided that the time had come to focus on his passion for animals and made the adjustments in his life to set the stage. This time he decided to leave lasting positive footprints for future generations. Recalling the years he spent as a manager in a veterinary clinic, Henry became convinced that he could get children’s and their caretakers attention, using the tools of cartoon-animation to teach them how to proper care for animals with understanding, kindness, and love.
The Doctor Wooff and Nurse Meow™ concept was born !
Daily case studies of “a veterinarian and his assistant” and their international staff in the “Cartoon Veterinary Hospital” demonstrate the humane treatment and care of animals. Using his remarkable creative talent, Henry has since created multiple educational projects, each one a stand-alone success, but one of the closest to his heart is “ Doctor Wooff and Nurse Meow™”. Doctor Wooff™ educates children at an early age to be aware of the special needs of pets and promotes the importance of proper loving care for all animals. The cartoon format catches the audience’s attention in a funny, adventurous, and educational way. Henry calls the Doctor Wooff™ project educational entertainment, or “EDUTAINMENT”!
To put together the best team to achieve his dream, Henry moved to the United States to start the Doctor Wooff™ adventure. As an Entrepreneur, he has created all engaging characters who work around the clock helping Doctor Wooff™ and Nurse Meow™ in their Animal-Hospital. The hospital is headquartered in the town of “Petsprings™” in the United States. The daily workload of an emergency clinic for animals is a big one, and a competent international staff keeps things running 24/7. Whether it is Doctor Drool™, a German Boxer, who is the hospital’s Dentist, or the orangutan Doctor Otto Shrink™, the staff psychologist, the lessons children learn cover a broad spectrum of animal needs. Interest keeps growing as the audience seeks to discover all the wonderful characters that work on Doctor Wooff’s™ team.
Henry is part of a rare species of “Visionaries” and well-known as a “Non-compromising Person" when it comes to animal abuse and cruelty to animals and all connected ultimate consequences! He is the author of his brand new book series called “Did you know”, where the reader gets a treasure chest full of valuable educational information about animals;
Henry is also the co–author of the book series called “Ask Doctor Wooff about”, and “Doctor Wooff’s favorite Artists and Authors”, all of which are sold exclusively through the online shop at www.doctorwooff.com. Henry also started the popular “Doctor Wooff and Nurse Meow™” comic book series, where he introduces his delightful characters to an audience age 5 and up. Those comic books are the basic for future animations; His first coloring and activity book series also started under the “Doctor Wooff and Nurse Meow™” brand name. Henry also became a song-writer and created the theme song for Doctor Wooff’s project for which he is still writing new Premises, songs and jingles;
The real adventure kicks in when the “villains” of Doctor Wooff’s™ projects start showing up! They are led by a greedy and unscrupulous individual who runs a worldwide smuggling organization from the shadows of the criminal underground. His name is Ignoraz McGreedy! He built his empire with puppy mills, selling of endangered species as trophies, and many other illegal activities involving terrible cases of cruelty to animals. He tries every trick he can devise to stop Doctor Wooff™ and his team from educating the public on the importance of animal welfare.
Henry sees himself as a visionary, leaving footprints for children to follow for a better life for animals and humans across the globe. Henry has put together an international team of artists, illustrators, graphic designers, writers, educators, child developers, pediatricians, veterinarians, and engineers, professionals from all walks of life. He founded his “Volunteer Board of Advisors” to ensure the highest level of educational integrity throughout the Doctor Wooff™ project; Every “Team Member” who works in Doctor Wooff’s Cartoon Clinic has a real life “professional team” behind his character, fully alive and aware of all the details that needs to be watched to assure the best level of education. Henry loves to meet and work with his “Junior Volunteer Advisory Board”, where he has Youth members ages 5 to 12, who help to get the information needed for important decisions, and to guide all the “professional adults“ through the “mind- jungle” and thought process of his present and future audience; By listening to them, Henry believes that this is the best way to avoid many potential costly mistakes in the future;
The ultimate goal is to make his wonderful educational stories available with the best animation, for TV and movies, and to expand the project internationally. The potential is as endless as Henry’s dreams, including a vision to establish the largest educational theme park in the world, right here in the US, where young and old can learn everything about animals and the proper care and at the same time have fun, and enjoy themselves together.
To give back to the community, Henry has decided to start his own nonprofit organization to help support animal rescue and adoption projects as well as animal sanctuaries and education centers across the country, and around the world.
The Founders most important goal is to finally shine light onto all levels of animal cruelty and to help those senseless suffering animals in need of a voice, in any way he can. Henry says he will not rest till the last dogfight ring is brought to justice and all puppy mills are closed, and all animals around the globe, big or small, are living an abuse free life.
To promote this goal and to bring people together and unite them to help prevent cruelty to animals, Henry knows exactly what needs to be done and how to get the world’s attention. He is preparing to work together with an “old friend” to build a solid worldwide front against the ugliness of animal cruelty; So stay tuned, the show will start soon!
One of Henry’s favorite quotes is…. ”Team work, makes the Dream work!”
