Saving Lives Through Passion 

Tracy Voss and her husband Scott Whyatt shared a deep passion for animals, particularly dogs. In 2011, they decided to use this passion to help the homeless dogs in their local area. After learning about the National Animal Relocation Initiative, they dedicated their time to saving dogs that were brought to shelters that were over-capacity.

These dogs were at the highest risk of being euthanized due to lack of space. Through their passion and tireless efforts, Tracy and Scott are making a positive impact on the lives of these dogs.

Ready to Go the Extra Mile for Animal Welfare 

The Tracy’s Dogs volunteers were determined to make sure the animals had the best chance of finding their forever homes. After researching the National Animal Relocation Initiative, they quickly discovered there were other animal shelters with room for the pups as they waited for their new family.

Tracy's Furlough Turned Into A Life-Long Passion 

Tracy had some downtime in 2011 when she was furloughed from her job, and she decided to put it to good use. She started visiting the local city shelter in San Antonio, videoing the dogs that were unlikely to get adopted.

Adopting a Dog from Liz: Saving Three Lives! 

Liz passionately believes in the “adopt, don’t shop” mantra. She knows how many dogs are euthanized in shelters annually and she’s determined to lower that number. Liz explains, “When someone adopts a dog from us, they’re not just saving that dog – they’re saving three lives!”

What does she mean by that? Well, when a pup is adopted, it not only saves the life of the adopted animal, but also prevents two more dogs from being euthanized in shelters due to overcrowding. Adopt, don’t shop – you’re saving three lives!

The Ripple Effect of Adopting a Shelter Dog 

When Liz talks about the joy of saving a dog from the shelter, her explanation reveals a ripple effect that positively impacts many lives. Every time one dog is adopted, it creates an opportunity for another homeless pup to be rescued from the shelter as well.

Liz explains that their camp in Texas has limited space for just 100 dogs, so when a trailer leaves with 60 dogs, it opens up those spots for more. Adopting a furry friend can save so many more lives than just one.
