Eleni, Rick and Friends
Eleni is Greek/ Dutch, her husband Rick is Swedish/Norwegian and they are best friends to each other and to many of man's best friends too. Eleni operates a small dog rescue/adoption center out of their home and Rick helps her when he is not flying a commercial jet. Last year 268 dogs were adopted out but they also paid out over $30,000 in vet bills. Adding to the sheer craziness, some of these dogs have been mistreated and now have major trust issues with humans. More than once, an innocent looking yet distraught canine has attacked Eleni sending her to a doctor for stitches.
These two over-the-top and sometimes over extended dog lovers are perfect candidates for national recognition. Eleni could easily appear on Oprah and Rick should possibly be analyzed by Dr. Phil. It's often difficult to understand such compassion and dedication. Potential canine adoptive parents must fill out an extensive application, be interviewed and furnish a reference or two. "Nothing is left to chance, we want no pet retraumatized, neither returned or abandoned."
