Pawprint | animal rescue podcast for dog, cat, and other animal lovers

You found us! We are Nancy and Harold Rhee, the hosts of Pawprint, an animal rescue podcast. We’ve been married 20 years, have fostered over 60 dogs, and we love the amazing people who dedicate their lives. And of course, the dogs, cats, and other animals! We have three dogs of our own – Nacho, Lego, and Evie.

The goal for Pawprint is simple – get inspired and do something. If you’re interested in helping animals, yourself, and your community, Pawprint is here to help! We hope you enjoy our podcast. After that, get inspired. Thanks!

Sincerely, Nancy and Harold – Pawprint

How would you be able to handle this?

Deborah Huaco cared for a special needs Beagle, Melody, for several months, then the original owner shows up. Deborah had to let her go, and Deborah had to carry that emotional burden. Listen to the episode to find out what happens next.

Deborah Huaco shares her animal rescue story with Melody, a beagle who has a number of medical needs. She and her girlfriend Denise have a huge animal family. Dogs, cats, turtles, birds, and a rat! And on top of that the animals they foster. Ironically, her big animal loves are cats and horses.
Born in Hong Kong, Deborah Huaco has lived in several countries, including South Korea, the United Kingdom, and Argentina. She is a first-grade teacher and an actress in local theater productions.
Deb has a heart for animals with special needs and senior animals.
