I was grateful to have been voted "Volunteer of the Month" for the month of October 2014 by Chicago Pet Rescue.  They are one of the groups that I work with on a regular basis.  I also work with Ceasers Heaven Rescue and Best Friends FURRever Animal Rescue.  I'm always looking for rescues to partner with to bring gentle massage and calm to the wonderful dogs in their care.

An even bigger surprise and great honor was that I was interviewed by Chicago Tribune Reporter, William Hageman, for my work incorporating my love of dogs, rescues, canine massage and "paying it forward."  The article is from October 13, 2014

Some of the wonderful dogs I had the honor of massaging at the Second City Canine Rescue Reunion on

Sunday, August 4, 2013.  What an awesome day!

I had the wonderful opportunity to massage some awesome greyhounds at the Midwest Greyhound Adoption Reunion, June 22, 2013.  Grover (below) was one of my favorites.  He was recovering from a broken leg.  Grover and his buddy, Jimmy (who also had a broken leg) were treated to two massages each.  Other willing recipients were Piston and Shane (adoptable greyhounds).
A few great dogs that I had the opportunity at Krisers in South Barrington.  Below is a Cane Corso and below her is a real sweetheart, Chewy!
Massaging some wonderful dogs at the Krisers in Vernon Hills, IL.  Freeway (above, smooth hair) was a rescue. 
He is paralyzed in his back legs.  It was an honor to work on him.  He is such a sweet boy.  He was very
receptive to massage.  Freeway really touched my heart!  Cindy Lou who (above, wire hair) was a puppy mill mother.  She was rescued and is now getting the love she deserves!
