Volunteer Work

I have volunteered with Pit Bull Rescue San Diego, StubbyDog, The Pet Rescue CenterLaramie Animal Welfare Society and Replace Denver BSL.  I've always been an animal lover, and the more I learned about the plight of pit bulls, the more I wanted to help. True underdogs, pit bulls are currently the No. 1 type of dogs found (and euthanized) in shelters, the most abused type of dog and the most misunderstood. My pit bull mix Omega (who passed away in 2012) was a certified therapy dog, and I took her to nursing homes and foster homes to visit with the residents. We currently have two rescue dogs adopted from Even Chance and All Aboard Animal Rescue. Both were labeled as pit bulls. Follow them here

As a public relations volunteer for PBRSD, my efforts resulted in a number of articles and TV appearances spotlighting the rescue's excellent work and also helping to educate the public about pit bulls.
