MDM would not be possible were it not for our small, yet dedicated team of
fosters, trainers, and pack members. Thank you to you all!!!

Emmy, Dexter & Bella, Canine Assistants
Emmy, Dexter and Bella make our whole operation possible. They come along and lead all of our doggie adventures, they assist in training and are reliably there to coax along the rescue cases that we take in for rehabilitation. They set examples, help teach obedience, show rescues how to be happy pet dogs, and most of all, keep smiles on our faces all day long!
