**We often see people doing kind things, but it is rare to see a man commit his entire life to saving others.** Greg Mahle quit the restaurant business to invest in his non-profit, Rescue Road Trips. The organization pulls dogs facing assured-immediate death from Southern Kill shelters and moves them to loving homes in New England. Families can find the dogs on databases like PetFinder.com, and the rescue team can transport them for a flat rate of $185. How does it work? Rescue Road Trips runs on a solid schedule. They leave Ohio, where the company is based, on Tuesdays and travel through Saturday. After traveling about 4,200 miles, the team returns home for some much needed rest on Sundays. Mondays are reserved for cleaning. The dogs are provided with plenty of walk, bathroom, and snack breaks, and Mahle sleeps in the trailer with them. In addition to building happier families, Rescue Road Trips has also made a difference in animal shelters in the South, where they are seeing less of a need to euthanize for space.
