Tracy's Dogs Rescues Shelter Dogs From Euthanasia And Finds Them Forever Homes

Tracy's Dogs is a not-for-profit National Rescue & Transport Initiative for shelter dogs. The focus of the program is to rescue and rehabilitate dogs with pending euthanasia dates residing in kill shelters with the hope of putting them up for adoption to find forever homes!


In 2011, ASPCA (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) launched a National Animal Relocation Initiative to move animals from areas of oversupply to areas where there are few, if any, similar pets available in shelters for adoption. And while on a 6-week work furlough, Tracy Whyatt followed her passion for saving these unloved dogs' lives! Tracy and her husband Scott started going on road trips, saving Texas-based dogs in kill shelters, and taking them to other states to find their forever homes... and their company, Tracy's Dogs, began!

Tracy's Dogs partners with PetSmart to help with a meeting space for the dogs and their new owners. Every month after filling out an application and going over the details of each dog and their new owners, Scott loads up the dogs in a 32-foot trailer and takes them to PetSmart parking lots in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Washington DC, and Florida, where they meet up with their new families. The moment that the new owners receive their dogs is amazingly emotional and beautiful!

Since Tracy and Scott began their company in 2011, they have adopted out over 3,700 dogs! And once you see these dogs and owners meet for the first time, you're going to want to adopt a dog from Tracy's Dogs!

Blind Waiter Serves Up Diner Classics and Life Lessons

** As we wind down to the final days of this difficult year, OGTV is tipping our hat to all of the essential workers on the front lines with this uplifting story about a New Jersey man who has found a way to do this difficult job for years, even without his eyesight! **

The flickering neon sign reflects eerily off the aging, chrome exterior; a long smooth marble counter with spinning stools draws your gaze left and right as you enter; the checkered linoleum floor seeps under the rows of back-to-back leather booths enveloped by the rain streaked wrap-around windows. You may think you've entered a typical American roadside eatery, but your experience here will be anything but ordinary.

You have just stepped into the Bendix Diner, a staple in Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey since the 1940's. It's no surprise that The Bendix can serve up a sizzling Burger with deep fried onion rings and a frothy chocolate shake.
