R.O.A.R. Squad

R.O.A.R. Squad: Rescue   Owners   Are   Rockin’

The original R.O.A.R Squad inspiration: My dog, the lovely Miss Kayloo

The Humane Society of the United States estimates that anywhere between 6-8 million animals are taken care of by shelters each year in the US. And every year, all kinds of fabulous, wonderful and dare I say “rockin’” individuals, families and groups step in to provide a loving home for many of these usually goofy, often smelly, and always heart touching little creatures and critters.

It’s those awesome rescue owners where the R.O.A.R. Squad comes in.

 What is the R.O.A.R. Squad (read the launching blog post here):

We’re from all walks of life. We’ve invited rescue animals into our homes. AND WE ARE ROCKIN’.

The One Year Plan

From April 2010 to April 2011 I featured on Fido & Wino:

  • at least one rescue owner from every state in the US
  • at least one rescue owner from every province and territory in Canada
