Tell us a bit more about what you do: We rescue and rehabilitate Chihuahuas and find them homes.  I focus mainly on helping raise funds with events and other fund raisers.  This year, it has been tough on us with doing this.

What do you love about what you do: Helping these dogs have a second chance in life.  The best part is feedback once they have settled into their new home and seeing them with their owner at one of our fun day events.

Which is your favourite Regal product: My dogs love the Doggy Dental Chews.

Are you a cat or a dog person: I have both but more a dog person

What is your favourite pet quote or saying: “Dog hair, don’t care!” “Chihuahuas are like potato chips, you can’t just have one.”

How many pets do you have at home: 4 pets: 2 Chihuahuas, 1 Yorkie and 1 cat.

Most memorable moment in charity: There are so many.  The best feeling is seeing the scared/damaged dog settled in their new home with their family.  We keep in contact with many of our rescue families and we get updated videos.  Also many of them come to our events and bring their dog/s with them.  Sometimes you can’t believe that it is the same dog.  This is what makes rescue worth it.

Anything else you would like to add: We are a team of 3 ladies that work together in the rescue, we all have full time jobs so we run the rescue after hours.  Lynda and Liza focus on daily running of the rescue, rehabilitations, fostering and adoptions.
