2015 was a busy year.

I don’t have a breakdown on how many dogs, cats, people (& other critters) we have helped in 2015 yet. I will get those numbers together soon.

I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you to all of my friends, family, and complete strangers for helping me help animals in need.


My husband, Scott, walking dogs who need exercise and love while waiting for homes in boarding facilities. This is the way my husband spends his free time. I’m one lucky girl. xo.

My husband, in particular, truly makes my work possible. He’s right by my side to feed, trap and medicate street cats. He accompanies me to vet appointments, helps me transport dogs/cats on a moment’s notice. He doesn’t get mad when I pull into the garage with a new furry friend who needs a safe place to chill until a permanent home is found. Together, we experience all of the emotions that rescue work evokes. We cry, we laugh, we say hello, we say goodbye, we thank God for the strength He gives us in order to keep helping others.

I’m so fortunate. I feel so spoiled to be able to do the work I do. I couldn’t imagine going through life without this purpose. Even when I’m crabby, tired, and sad, I know life is so much better with rescue in it.

Happy New Year!
