Greg Mahle of Rescue Road Trips shares his story of dedication
to his family, including his wife Adella, and to thousands of dogs
over the years.
Approximately twenty-six times a year, or every other week,
Greg and one hired driver take a seven-day journey from Ohio to
Southern states like Texas and Louisiana to fill up a tractor
trailer with up to seventy dogs. They then head to Northeastern
states like Pennsylvania and Connecticut to deliver each dog
to their respective permanent or "forever" homes. That's a 4,200
mile round-trip, every two weeks!
Learn more about Greg's story, such as WHY he has
made this journey every two weeks for years, the ups and downs
of life on the road with a huge pack of dogs in a truck, and the
many dedicated people who help make these road trips
If you are looking for the YouCaring site that Greg Mahle
mentioned in the interview to donate, the site has been closed
for a very good reason - it reached its goal!! We'll give an
update to Greg's fundraising efforts on an upcoming episode with
Peter Zheutlin, author of Rescue Road.
- If you want to donate to Rescue Road Trips to pay for diesel,
help with truck repairs, and most importantly, help
save thousands of dogs, donate here.
Greg Mahle's work and dedication inspired a
best-seller, Rescue Road: One Man, Thirty Thousand Dogs, and a Million
Miles on the Last Hope Highway
, paints a portrait of
Greg's wonderful personality and the effort and heart he gives. You
also get to know many other heroes - the folks on the front lines
of rescue - who visit shelters, search for strays, and sacrifice
much of their lives to benefit dogs. People like Keri Bullock Toth,
Kelle Davis, and Alicia McCarty, among many others. Like me,
you may learn more about the daunting animal
overpopulation issue, and cry tears of sadness and with
some stories, tears of hope. [Amazon] Rescue
