It was great to catch up with Pack Ethic’s Eric Bellows in today’s episode of Bark Radio. Hear about what’s been happening at the sanctuary this last year, important legislation that we all need to support, and a great event that’s happening at Pack Ethic tomorrow, Saturday,  July 28. If you can’t make it to the sanctuary, check out their great videos on YouTube, visit their website and follow them on Facebook. If you aren’t supporting a rescue, make it this one. Eric and company do amazing work with abused dogs!

Madness in the rescue world

Dog rescue groups are in the business of saving, re-homing, and sometimes even re-jobbing dogs, right? Well, not always. Too often there seems to be a disconnect among individuals within the rescue world. Misinformation abounds. Hear Terry’s personal experience relating to a Kim, a service dog in need of a new home. That’s Kim in the photo below. More about her journey in a future episode of Bark Radio.

A year ago we met Mike and Goldie from Mikes Dog House, I thought it would be fun to revisit that interview ~ Terry – Mike’s Dog House began when an abandoned dog was rescued while Mike was running a hot dog stand. From that point forward Mike turned Mike’s Dog House into a bully breed rescue and has not looked back. Mike has personally handled every rescue that has came through the dog house and interviewed every potential adopter to ensure adoption compatibility. Since beginning over five years ago, Mike’s Dog House has successfully adopted out hundreds of dogs.

Eric Bellows absolutely rocks! Don’t miss our conversation with Eric about Joe Thunder, the amazing Rottweiler who lost his owner and K9 sister in a home invasion and nearly lost his own life after being shot four times. This is an amazing story of the true nature of a dog. If you are interested in adopting Joe Thunder (yup, he’s ready for a forever home) or another of Eric’s dogs, apply online at Pack Ethic Rescue or Rescue Ink. And check out video of Eric’s Pack Ethic Rescue, the amazing sanctuary he and wife, Keri, run in upstate New York. Thanks, Eric!!
