Hi, I'm Lynne and I am a dog-a-holic. I love my dogs and they are the center of my world. I have teenaged twin boys, a husband who is a computer programmer for the army and a volunteer fireman, here in our town. I am also a teacher of Social Studies at an Inner City high school.
I spent many hours, a few years ago, researching canine nutrition as my beloved standard poodle died because of tainted dog food during the 2007 recalls. I now homecook for my pack as I didn't like all I learned about dog food companies, here in the US.
I also have a passion for rescue. I don't believe people should breed dogs when so many die in shelters because there aren't enough homes for them all. I started a Rescued Group on another forum and it got so much attention and so big, that we decided it needed it's own home, and this site was born. I foster dogs from shelters until I find them Forever Homes and crosspost dogs needing rescue on Facebook.
Friends I met on that other forum and I worked very hard to make this site a reality. Sadly, personalities and problems caused some of us to go our separate ways but this site will continue to educate, engage and hopefully help other's become as passionate as I am about ensuring a better life for rescued animals.
Next time, I'll tell you about my pack.
Introduce yourself, tell us your story and let's get to know each other.
