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