We are a husband and wife team that has been associated with the animal industry most of our lives. In 2005 our focus changed from showing Palomino Quarter Horses to rescuing dogs when we volunteered in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina. We had been driving volunteer transports for 2 years and then we finally found our 'nitch' in the rescue dog world. We were seeing so many dogs coming out of Missouri through St. Louis and every weekend the amount of dogs grew on each transport with many more left behind.
In 2010 we decided to devote our efforts to transporting dogs in need full time. After 42 years with Con Agra Mills in Alton, IL. Dave started his early retirement. I also retired early after working 28 years at St. Anthony's Health Center. Dog Runner Pet Transport LLC was formed in April 2011. Our goal is transporting the forgotten, homeless shelter dogs in a safe, secure, stress free environment to their forever homes.
