The story covers 10 years and 10,000 dogs saved.
Danny Robertshaw and Ron Danta, of Danny & Ron’s Rescue in South Carolina, cared for for these dogs in their own home, and found forever homes for each of them.
“We didn’t set out for the attention,” says Danta. “But we love animals, and after getting our feet wet in New Orleans in 2005—both figuratively and literally—while rescuing Hurricane Katrina dogs, our outreach just grew from there.”
The attention grew first organically, then in the press, and now in a full-fledged movie.
Danny & Ron’s Rescue
Today, Danny and Ron rescue puppy mill dogs, bait dogs used in dog fighting, abandoned dogs, abused dogs, and kill shelter dogs, many just minutes away from being euthanized. Their 501(c)(3) nonprofit also delivers pet food and supplies to the elderly living in poverty and helps subsidize veterinary bills.
Danny and Ron bring these animals first into their own home because neglected and abused dogs, they say, recover and trust again much more successfully in a loving home. With help, they care for each and every one of their rescue dogs both physically and emotionally until they’re ready to be saved.
Danny and Ron have increased the “10,000 dogs saved” benchmark depicted in the movie to near 12,000.
