Helene believes in rescue. She has volunteered with several rescue organizations in the Capital District over the 25 years she has lived there including Animalovers and Out of the Pits. Her and her husband count two rescued pit bulls as their beloved family members. They both enjoy sharing their experiences adopting, fostering, and working with rescue. They believe too many dogs are dying every week and since there are so many wonderful dogs to choose from they believe there is no reason to purchase a dog.
