Dogs are very special to me. Dogs I have been blessed to know have been some of my greatest teachers, healers, friends and family.
It is because of this special connection I began volunteering with Best Friends Animal Society in 1994.
Currently I am involved in the Pup My Ride program. Pup My Ride transports anywhere from 25 to 45 homeless dogs a week from high-kill shelters to out-of-state rescue groups.
If you are considering a new pet, please visit a shelter.
And, if you can, try and visit one in a low-income neighborhood. Overcrowding is at its highest in these shelters. You will be saving a life by doing this. And I guarantee your new pet will rescue you right back!

You can also contact me if you would like to be involved. All kinds of help are appreciated.
