best fits the dogs need, and participate in every aspect of the rescue

to questions, coordinating the foster homes and placements for dogs,
interact with the press and public, attend anti-puppymill related
events, and provide the overall guidance and direction of the group.

sometimes cats or other critters, take them to the vet for needed
medical care, teach them to walk on a leash when possible, and help the
dog learn what it means to live outside a cage. They also attend dog
events and work to educate the public regarding the plight of mill dogs.
