“ALL dogs allowed! Every dog is the best dog ❤”

I have had dogs all my life, I have always loved them. I got involved in rescue over 10 years ago and have been fortunate to help and love many dogs. Being able to care for them and see them transform from the sick, scared, or abused (often all of those) dogs into healthy, loving babies is so rewarding. They are so loving, and deserve the very best we can do for them!
