Grace was dumped on an on-ramp to I-80 right in front of me. There were no animal organizations in our area to help her, so I took her home. Because of her ordeal and a clear need in the community, AHeinz57 Pet Rescue & Transport was born. In the past 5 years we have rescued and rehomed almost 2,000 dogs and transported another 4,000 dogs from kill shelters to no-kill rescues.
Sadly, Gracie only had 1 kidney, which had severe kidney disease. My sweet girl went home to Heaven on August 5th, 2013. Her short life was not in vain. Because of her, approximately 6,000 lives have been saved and thousands more will be saved. I dedicate this to my Amazing Grace.
