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

Zach Skow is founder of Marley’s Mutts Dog Rescue in Tehachapi, California. Several years ago, Zach was dying of liver and kidney failure from his struggles with alcoholism and drug addiction. Amazingly, several months after a very low point for him, Zach’s health improved. He no longer required an organ transplant, and now lives alcohol and drug-free. His only drugs are Veg-E-Tables.

Zach credits his survival to his rescue dogs Marley and Tug, along with his father’s love and support. As Zach says, “a pit bull saved my life.” Marley is a Rottweiler-Pit Bull mix.

Marley’s Mutts has gained an active following on social media with over 500,000 followers on Facebook, and in today’s episode Zach discusses the many programs that Marley’s offers along with the future direction of the organization.
