“Cool Crew” member launches lifesaving campaign

Paola Potts first became involved with RedRover about three years ago. As a person who is extremely sensitive to heat, she began noticing that dogs were often being left unattended in parked cars. Through research, Paola discovered the My Dog Is Cool (MDIC) website, and started distributing MDIC fliers, posters and copies of the California law to the public. Paola wanted to take it a step further, though, and in 2012, she developed a parking lot sign campaign.

A video of a true survivor

Check out this video of Hallelujah, the little dog with a horrible genetic deformity who was rescued from a puppy mill in Tennessee on April 23. Hallelujah's front legs are stuck out straight to the side, so he only has the use of his back legs and gets around by hopping on his shoulders and face.
