Raise The Woof

Dogs are simply amazing. They have become part of our family and an integral part of our society. Unfortunately, some people see dogs as property instead of a family member. Many people turn their heads to look away at the bad, but dog rescuers do not. My rescue world is filled with amazing people that I am proud to know. It is also filled with a ton of drama. Time to Raise the Woof and tell the stories that are long overdue.

"Our relationship was better after you quit the transfer team."

 
He is right. I am mad it took me so long to realize how much of a time suck that was, but I am so grateful for everything I learned at Chicago Animal Care and Control. 
 
Schipp is kind of shy about putting our lives out there, but he was a great guest. 
 
"I try to help Sarah think with her head and not her heart."
 
Sometimes I am clouded by the passion to save an animal, when in reality it may not be the best. Schipp is always a sounding board for me. I am so thankful to have someone like him.

Dawn Isenhart-Copp and I became instant friends when we 1st met at Chicago Animal Care and Control and I had a White Sox tee on... "I knew I liked you when I met you and you had that tee on!" she said.

Dawn is amazing. She has the best heart, but has an edge to her that I SO RESPECT and when she rants-it is amazing. Haaaaa. Tomorrow, she tells the story of Midnight-a dog she rescued from my pavilion C at animal control a few years ago, who almost had a tragic ending.

Also, as I called her to do the podcast, I was in tears as I was cramming in some last minute research on Lulu's Locker Rescue and why the name Lulu's. I think it is a story we can all relate too and still SO RELEVANT. You are a good dude Andy! 

She rescues old dogs and cats and black animals-very, very tough. We talk about it all.

Katie is the go-to for all things related to stray and feral animals. She spends much of her time in Chicago trying to capture strays and her adventures have garnered a lot of media attention. She is a great chick with a heart of gold and will drop anything to help someone out. (well, most people anyway. haaaa)

"It has nothing to do with the person that raised them. It has to do with the person handling them."

As it got later into the night when Carolyn and I were to do our podcast, I wondered how tipsy she would be by the time we started. HA! As usual, CG told it like it is and I decided NOT to censor this, so be careful listening around the kids. She is a great friend and an amazing rescuer, taking on one of the toughest breeds- pit bulls.

And I made her cry----again.

"I was bored and needed a hobby." That is how Heather Owen got started in dog rescue and she now runs one of the most successful rescues in Chicagoland. Heather is innovative and always looking for new and better ways to do things. She has a tough persona, but she describes herself as a "people pleaser," which honestly shocked me. Enjoy the show...
