From Northern California flood response, 1997
I guess I’d grown cynical. Over the years the wrong presidential candidates were elected, vicious crime seemed to dominate the news of the nation, and in my own neighborhood a depraved cat torturer was on the loose. I wasn’t always an enthusiastic booster of the human race. Until Saturday, January 4, 1997.
In April 2016, our RedRover Responders team deployed to Core Creek, Pennsylvania, to assist with a large-scale Trap-Treat-Neuter-Place/Return program for hundreds of community cats. RedRover Director of Field Services, Beth Gammie, wrote about the experience of using collaboration to create a solution for a seemingly impossible situation.
Brandon is a disabled veteran whose closest companion is his beloved Dalmatian, Baby Girl. Brandon and Baby Girl had been living in Colorado when he decided to move back to his hometown in Pennsylvania. He packed up all their belongings and headed out with a truck, a travel trailer and Baby Girl by his side. Everything was going well until the draft of a passing semi sent his trailer fishtailing down a Missouri highway. Unable to regain control, Brandon’s truck and trailer flipped and rolled four times before coming to a stop.
