Veterinarian’s Home is Wildlife Rescue for Animals of All Kinds (Dr. Amy Jo’s Wild Life Part 2)

Outside of Fredericksburg, Texas, there's a 35 acre plot of land that might as well be called Dr. Amy Jo's Wild Habitat. A stroll on these grounds would put you face to face with raccoons, coyotes, cows, foxes, deer, skunks, rescue dogs, and even an African Oryx.

The glue that holds this menagerie together is the soothing presence of veterinarian Dr. Amy Jo Pilmer. "I seem to be able to calm them and they are very comfortable with me," she reflects. "My thought is because I spend so much time with them." Many of these animals were either rescued or brought to Amy when they were very young, and in many cases, near death. There was a baby deer that was found unresponsive on the side of the road and needed intravenous feeding to pull through. A Belted Galloway came to her with almost no control of her legs but has healed and grown under her watchful eyes. Numerous sick and ailing shelter dogs have recuperated on her ranch and gone on to find new, loving homes.

Healing seems to come naturally to Dr. Amy Jo and she particularly loves the care and nurturing of baby animals. But she also knows that inevitably those she rehabilitates will grow up and need to move on. "It's almost heartbreaking … it's like a kid when they turn 18," she reflected. "They don't want or need you anymore and they leave and go off to be their own animal."

Watch and meet Meatball, Fast Eddie and many of Amy Jo's other frisky critters and see what day-to-day life is like for a woman who seems to have a life giving touch, no matter what kind of a wild thing comes through her gate.

Adorable Rescued Dogs Meet Their New Families (A Dog’s Journey Home E5)

The excitement has been building for weeks for over 40 families from all over the country who have gathered in Madison, Wisconsin to finally meet, in person, the dogs they have fallen in love with from watching their videos posted by Tracy.

In this episode of "A Dog's Journey Home", a very special batch of dogs, many who have been with the Tracy's Dogs team for a long time, finally arrive in Madison for the first day of their lives with their new families. They have traveled 1,262 miles and for some, it was difficult to leave the caring and loving environment of the Tracy's Dogs facility in San Antonio.

"This is the most unique group of dogs we have ever rolled out on the road with," Scott reflects. And it's not easy for Scott's daughters, Sara and Jenna, who have spent so many hours caring and nurturing these pups, to let go. "There are a lot of dogs that are really hard to part with," Sara explained. "Our long stay dogs, you really get attached to them. Once they get adopted, we get really excited but it's also really hard … we shared lots of tears dropping the dogs off but we know they are going to a good place."

Here are some of Scott's thoughts about a few of the special dogs you will meet in this episode:

Meatball – "I call him Meathead….very lovable…he's the only dog who can overheat in 65 degree weather"

Peg – "Miss Congeniality on three legs … sweetheart"

Nellie – "Will drive you to drink but you'll love her every step of the way… perfect companion"

Watch the smiles and tears as Scott hands off each dog and then reflects on the great work by his team. "I'm just really glad all 40 have of them have homes now. That's why we work so hard. It's a rescue…we're saving lives!"
