From Plymouth, Massachusetts’ Patch.com blog, we learn of a local woman who is nothing short of a hero for some of our four-legged fellow travelers.
Megan Saucier, of Plymouth, and Katie Montgomery of nearby Somerville, have started Survivor Tails, a group dedicated to rescuing and finding homes for dogs who have been scheduled to be euthanized.
Run entirely by volunteers, thus far they’ve already saved 14 dogs. And they’ve only just begun in their efforts.
