The journey began 13 years ago with my first rescue dog Patrick. But it wasn’t enough to save one life, and so I got involved with Houston-based All Border Collie Rescue (ABCR) and started to foster and volunteer. My husband and I raised money cycling across Iowa amongst other things! Now as a Realtor I can do more: On every sale or purchase of a home I donate to a local animal shelter or ABCR. There is no reason why we all can’t give back and what better way than supporting something to dear to our hearts in the community in which we live. Please share your pictures and stories to show others that “to adopt, not shop” is so much more rewarding. I look forward to putting our best paws forward and improving the lives of those who can’t stand up for themselves!
