A rescue mission started by one central Indiana woman is helping to save the lives of thousands of dogs and help them find a forever home by using a network of volunteers. The Wilman’s have opened their home to be a temporary stay for over 30 dogs. The dogs typically come in, stay for a week or two at a time. The family gets the dogs vetted and makes sure they are healthy.
The Wilman’s are a foster dog care family for a rescue mission called “Every Dog Counts.” The dog rescue was started by Sarah Harris and is 100% volunteer. They take animals from animal care and control centers in Indianapolis and connect them to families like the Wilmans.
Once the dogs are healthy the mission tries to find permanent homes for the dogs. We can only hope more organizations like Every Dog Counts sprout up across the nation.
