Local Group Helping Man's Best Friend
By Travis Senn
Often during our hardest times, we turn to our dogs (or other pets) for comfort and consoling. One local group is trying to return the favor to our furry friends. Lucky Dog Small Breed Rescue, headed by Gabrielle Petersen, takes rescue dogs from Chicago and Milwaukee and pairs them with caring homes and loving families.
Before founding Lucky Dog, Petersen was volunteering with another rescue group before she decided to start her own group. The group has developed strong relationships with shelters in Chicago and Milwaukee. Another volunteer, April Tarras, explains the grim situation these shelters face.
