Well, we made it to the second episode of The Dog Files and I think we have a great one for you!

When we arrived at the parking lot that Saturday morning at about 4:00 AM we weren’t sure what to expect. We knew some people were meeting to pick up dogs coming from the south. That’s about it.

Then we met Ingela. I can say with confidence that I have never met someone with such passion and zeal for her job. It was clear from the moment I met her, how much she was committed to helping and saving dogs. That day she was an inspiration to us all.

What else can I say about Kyle Peterson and P.E.T.S.? Every week they gather up shelter dogs from throughout the south and drive up north to introduce them to their new family’s. They’ve literally helped thousands of dogs find new homes and saved them from being euthanized.

I’d also like to thank the other women at Rawhide Rescue… Caroline Gordon, Laura Paxson and Janet McKim. We all know it takes a team to make great things happen. I’ve witnessed these lady’s at work and can truly say they have the biggest hearts I’ve ever seen.

It took a thousand miles of driving, the combined effort of two dedicated teams and an unbelievable amount of work. And it was all done so that dogs like Sonny Boy can lead a happy life with a loving family. I’m sure right now, his family is watching and laughing as Sonny Boy rolls around in the grass of his backyard. All of them, completely unaware of all the work it really took so they could have this moment.

And that’s just the way it should be.
