We live in Battle Ground, Wa about 25 minutes from Portland, OR. We both have always loved dogs, together we have rescued 4 dogs (Willow, Avery, Milagros, Gena) with permanent beds in our home and decided our journey to save more dogs couldn’t stop there. Growing up Madii’s Mom was an avid dog lover. On lunch break she would walk dogs at the shelter and brought home a few of the dogs no one else would adopt. This ignited Madii’s passion. Mel has grown up with rescue dogs her whole life and had always wanted to help in some way. We were given the opportunity to start fostering dogs, which is how we met Ceci in early 2018. She saved a severely malnourished pup, whom had recently had puppies. Her name was Milagros (miracle), she survived a broken jaw and many cuts across her neck from a machete. We had no idea we would adopt Mila, we had only signed up to foster her. The day Mel met Mila she knew this was going to be her dog, even though we had a strict black dog only household. The rest is history and from that moment forward it kick started our passion for fostering and helping Ceci in anyway we could. We fostered 11 dogs last year, each one took a piece of us with them and we cant wait to fill our hearts and home with more!
