At a young age Linda turned to the animals to help with a difficult childhood. She even trained a horse to shake hands, bow and lay down on command! Linda and Larry York rescued their first dog 27 years ago! A little dog that was found running down some railroad tracks. She proved to be challenging but through this Linda and Larry learned that taking the time to help an animal is very rewarding. Obedience classes paid off as the dog became a trick dog performing at nursing homes, hospitals and church functions!
Linda became involved with a Humane Society Animal Shelter in Michigan and volunteered for years before moving back “home” and deciding Wyoming needed a true NO-kill facility. To start their dream, Larry, Linda’s husband of 30+ years, who had retired went back to work delivering mail. Since that time she has also directly assisted a number of veterinarians during surgeries.
Throughout the years they have found that it’s possible to tame wild cats and even dogs on court ordered bite holds can be helped and then adopted into loving households.
We would love the opportunity to share with you what we’ve learned over the years on how to raise pet so that it’s a successful relationship for both owner and pet. Thank you for making our dreams of saving lives possible!
