Danny was born and raised in the Ypsilanti/Belleville area. He started out volunteering at the local Humane Society where he would spend every day making certain that every dog was walked. It didn’t matter if a dog was aggressive or extremely shy, Danny would work with all of them.
It wasn’t long until his reputation spread of his natural skill, dedication and compassion for every dog. He encountered just about every issue you can think of while volunteering at the humane society. But his true lessons on being a dog behaviorist came from living with a pack of dogs. Danny says "It's a must to be a calm assertive pack leader 24/7 to actually live amongst a pack of dogs."
Danny’s life is dedicated to saving dogs. He knows this is the path he was born to follow.
Barb is new to our board, but not new to Roughneck Rescue. She has helped Roughneck for years with fundraising, walking dogs, assisting at our workshops through K-9 Behavior Rehabilitation and doing what ever needs to happen. Barb hosts our annual garage sale which is a huge undertaking, as we basically take over her house for a few months in preparation. Barb is also the one who returns all of the bottles and cans that are donated. Barb is no stranger to rescue as all of her dogs have been rescues. She and her husband Rick now live with Paco the Chihuahua and Tigger Too, the kitten who showed up on her deck and made herself at home.
Barb is an integral part of the operation here and we appreciate her so much!
“Some people might disagree with me…But I swear that rescue animals know that they have been saved and will always remember that. They repay you back with so much love.”
Margaret is our Secretary/Treasurer, which means keeping us organized! Margaret is a retired school teacher and is great at keeping things moving forward.
"Saving one dog will not change the world, but surely for that one dog, the world will change forever!"
Rescue & Sanctuary is located at her home where she and Danny live with the pack. Kelly has always been a city girl, but now loves living in the country. Kelly works as an executive assistant in Ann Arbor and has dedicated her life to the rescue and rehabilitation of dogs.
The time spent with a pack of dogs has taught her much about herself and, in particular, how to be calm and take time to appreciate the small things in life. Her passion for this rewarding endeavor, stated simply, is that “all dogs deserve to be safe and fulfilled. It is so rewarding to be able to help dogs, as well as families”.
Kelly and Danny were married in 2017.
