DOC helps out at WPT’s “Shelter Me” Pledge Drive with Patricia McConnell

PBS Group Shot2Three Dogs On Call handlers and their adopted dogs (Briana & Gerry, Jen & Eva, and Karen & Raider) participated in the pledge breaks during Wisconsin Public Television’s (WPT) broadcast of “Shelter Me.” The program highlighted pets from shelters and rescues whose lives have changed and changed the lives of their rescuers. During the breaks, animal behaviorist Patricia McConnell talked with the DOC handlers about how their dogs were adopted and what activities they do with DOC. Liz, another DOC representative, was there, too, to tell a little about the Dogs On Call organization. It was a fun event and a successful night of fundraising for WPT!

Member Profile: Pat and her Pet Partner Colleen

PatColleenPat and her Goldendoodle, Colleen, age six, live in Niles, Illinois.  Pat was understandably miserable after having just euthanized her 13-year-old dog. Her family thought a new dog would be the only cure. Meanwhile, one-year-old Colleen (formerly “Mia”) was found tied outside a shelter in the rain.  She had been at the shelter one week when she and Pat met.  Pat considers Colleen a “gift from God,” as this sweet, gentle, friendly girl came into her life just when needed.  Pat and Colleen have a busy schedule, visiting at Midwest Palliative Hospice Care Center in Glenview, IL; Presbyterian Homes in Evanston, IL; and soon beginning at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital.  They also participate in a Fear Class at Morton Grove’s Rainbow Therapy Group and have done a few programs at Kohl’s Children’s Museum in Glenview.  We are grateful for all that Pat and Colleen do!
