From high kill shelter to Broadway!

Many of you have driven runs for me from NC to New England. That means you have most likely driven a dog that came from Hartman’s Haven in Hickory, NC. Crystal Hartman works tirelessly to save the dogs of Catawba County. She has built up a base of volunteers to help pull, foster and get vetting for them. Even though she pulls hundreds of dogs every year, the kill rate at Catawba is still over 90% 

But with this particular pull, something special happened….planets in alignment, the gods were on her side, pick your expression.

Behold Pete and Lily!

Two bloodhounds that went from death row to Broadway! They traveled from Crystal in NC to Ontario Bloodhound Rescue in Ontario, Canada via rescue transport. The rest is history!

What an awesome ending to a deadly beginning! It takes a village and Crystal got the ball rolling on this happy ending!
