Grace's Story and Our Beginning
Hi, my name is Grace and I would like to tell you a little bit of my story.
I was left on the streets of Miami all alone. I had to fend for myself for months. I ate bugs, lizards, and anything else I could find to fill my belly. I made a friend in the very same situation as me and we were inseparable!
One day, a nice lady named Krista Karnis came, put us in her car and brought us to a shelter. The shelter gave me food and a doctor gave me medicine. I felt much better, but still had no family.
Weeks later, Krista came back to the shelter to tell me I was going to have a new mom! I am not alone anymore and my belly is always full! I guess you could say I was the inspiration to my new mom, Vici Nadvit, to become the founder of Saving Grace Pet Food Bank, Inc.

VICI NADVITFounder & Executive Director
Through rescuing Grace and learning her incredible survival story, Vici realized that no one should have to choose between feeding themselves a meal and feeding their pet. This is when the idea for Saving Grace Pet Food Bank was born. Vici went to work collaborating with her team and bringing Saving Grace Pet Food Bank to life.
Currently, with her son who just completed 5 years in the Navy and daughter attending UCF, she has returned to one of her passions of selling and buying Real Estate at MVP Realty in Naples. Full of enthusiasm and energy to deliver services and results for her customers, she now shares that energy, enthusiasm and empathy for families with pets who are suffering from financial hardships with Saving Grace Pet food Bank.
