Twice a month Greg Mahle leaves his home in Zanesville, Ohio to drive a semi-trailer through Texas and other southern states picking up dogs set to be euthanized.
He sleeps on a mattress among the dozens of dogs until he reaches states like Pennsylvania, New York, Connecticut and Vermont, where loving families are waiting to adopt them.
In the last decade Mahle has saved an average of 2000 dogs each year. See some of the happy new owners on the Rescue Trips’ Facebook Page.
