I met today’s guest when I first got involved with Pets Alive. Everyone was always praising this volunteer groomer who worked wonders on the dogs and I had to find out more.

The Q: What can we do to help rescue more animals? I originally set out to come up with 101 ways to help rescue pets, but after several months my mind was coming up blank, so when I finally hit 50, I figured it’s better than nothing. A list of 50 ideas can’t help animals at all when it’s sitting all alone in my notebook, so I thought maybe you ...…
 
Our guest for today’s show has a personal history that I can really relate to. Nearly everyone I’ve interviewed so far has seemed to have been born a rescuer, there was never anyone who shared their “before-I-got-into-rescue” stories, there never even seems to be a “before.” I don’t know, maybe I’m just not asking the right questions… You might ...…

He ma ...…

You might remember, at the end of the 1st season, I said that I wanted to focus in on some of the not-so-tragic stories about rescue.

In fact, I’d put my money on the truly tragic rescue stories being the mi ...…

***There's a little cursing in this episode - just a warning in case you don't like that kind of thing =)*** Today I have a really amazing guest to introduce to you, and if I had to give him a job title I’d have to say he’s an inspirist, because no matter what hat he happens to be wearing, this guy will inspire you.

Today I’m excited to introduce a woman that we can all take a lesson from. As rescuers, we often take on the pets we’re afraid the average adopter would shy away from or at the very least would label as a challenge.
