June 2017 Giving Report
Hi Dog Lovers,
This is Alicia and I’m so happy to be sharing an update with you about a special animal rescue organization we’ve supported this month.
Rescue Road Trips is a unique rescue organization, founded by Greg Mahle, who you might not have heard of, but definitely should. He has almost 100K followers on Facebook and has been featured on the Today Show, in a documentary and mini-documentary, and even inspired a book.
Greg and his team are based in Ohio. They organize road trips in the southern states where spay/neuter rates are low and shelters are often overwhelmed and forced to euthanize completely healthy young dogs. These once unlucky dogs are given a second chance with new families in the New England region and this is why we have decided to contribute financially on your behalf.
During the rescue road trip, the team schedules plenty of breaks with groups of ‘volunteer angels’ that are ready to provide love and reassurance along the route through one-on-one time with the dogs on board.
They even have one person (often Greg) sleeping on a mattress in the trailer with up to 80 dogs who are all in the safety of their own crates.
If you’d like to know what one of these road trips look like, check out this map.
When the amazing rescue team gets home on a Sunday, they spend Monday cleaning trailers and sanitizing crates to get ready for another trip a week later. Isn’t that incredible?!
Greg and his team rescue more than 2,000 animals a year and is asking our community to take a moment to read a “Letter From Fido”. It’s a tough read, but makes us better appreciate what some less fortunate dogs experience.
Our deep thanks to you, Greg, and your team for the amazing work you do with so much heart, compassion and dedication. We are sending you $1,500 USD to help support your efforts.
