A Dog’s Journey Home E7: Meet the Volunteers That Save Thousands Of Dogs

While Tracy and Scott are the co-founders and best known members of Tracy'sDogs, there is actually a large group of volunteers from coast to coast that help them manage and respond to the nearly 300 adoption applications that they receive every month. Most have come to the Darien Illinois "Gotcha Day" for their annual get together to celebrate each other and the work they love – managing the trials and tribulations of helping rescue dogs find new homes.

In this episode of A Dog's Journey Home, you will meet many of the individuals on the Tracy'sDogs team, and hear how they handle all of the details of the adoption process and the emotional roller coaster of a "Gotcha Day". This is also the opportunity for Scott and Tracy to say thank you to all the staffers for the incredible work they do all year.

Scott is extremely proud of the dedicated team he and Tracy have built. "The best part of Tracy'sDogs is that it gives so many of the players that are a part of what we do an opportunity to do what they are passionate about", he explains. "It's really what drives me every day."

A perfect example is their Communication Director, Amber Hodgson, who does much of the behind the scenes work of reviewing applications and following up with potential adopters. "Gotcha Day is my favorite day of the month!" she says with a smile. "This is really the day we get to see all of our hard work in action."

After all the dogs have met their new families and are on their way to their new homes, the team joins together for dinner. Gather round to share in the stories, achievements, and hear Tracy's heartfelt words of thanks.

Celebrating Birthdays for Hospitalized Kids

** Our first of OGTV's "GOOD STORIES" for the week is about a couple of friends who are making sure that a hospitalized child's birthday gets all the bells and whistles they deserve! **

Kids rarely get to celebrate when they are in the hospital and having a birthday there is not the ideal situation. After seeing her godson spend some time in the hospital, surrounded by kids who were having their birthdays without the laughter and joy that comes with their special day, Stefanie Grimm had an idea. Even if you are hospitalized, there is no reason that you shouldn't have a birthday party! This generous thought was the seed that grew into The Confetti Foundation.
