Man Rescues Unwanted Dogs From Kill List & Takes Road Trips To Find Them Homes

  • 50,000 unwanted dogs facing assured-immediate death are now thriving in their new homes thanks to this saint of a man who drives them thousands of miles.

Ohio-based passionate animal lover Greg Mahle hated seeing countless shelter animals being put down after finding homes.

He gradually saw a pattern nobody else noticed – shelter dogs were abundant within the Deep South , while there have been many families up north who were trying to find dogs but couldn’t find one!

With this realization, Greg began on a mission to save lots of the unwanted death house dogs!
Greg founded “Rescue Road Trip”, a service dedicated to transporting dogs rescued from kill-lists to their forever families across the country.

He retrieves dogs facing assured-immediate death across several Southern kill shelters, and takes them on humane road trips to seek out the Northern families who are willing to adopt them.

That’s genius!

In this video, we see an enthusiastic Greg on one among his road trips with the rescued dogs in his huge trailer. The trip wears him down, but he keeps driving through Kentucky, Tennessee, and Mississippi.

He gives timely snack and potty breaks to the dogs and also makes sure the crates are sanitized at regular intervals.

As we see the various anticipating families eagerly embracing their new dogs, we will tell that it’s an emotional experience for everybody involved.

Till date, over 50,000 dogs have escaped the kill list and are thriving in their forever homes because of Greg.
