Dana was my friend. She was a friend to so many. But especially to the animals. Her face lit up when she looked into the eyes of an animal. Cancer is awful. It took away a woman making a huge difference to sooo many. I will miss you Dana. So many will.
This is a replay of the podcast that I did with her a few months ago. I love to hear her voice and learn from her. Each of us can take a little something away from the legacy that she left. Her shoes can never ever be filled properly.
"For me, I think I may be their only shot of getting out (of the shelter) and that is what drives me. When you see them, how can you not try to help them?"
Kristen Gerali, the Founder of ALIVE Rescue Chicago, has a passion for difficult dogs-deaf, feral, pregnant-she sees the best in them and works to give them a family of their own after some TLC. It is not easy, but to see her amazing stories is enough to give anyone hope. For those dogs that may not be able to be released into the real world, well they have a home for life with ALIVE.
