Bruce & Hobbes Podcast: Denise Gareau, Eskies Online
This week, Bruce & Hobbes are joined by Denise Gareau - Founder, Eskies Online.
Eskies Online is a 501(c)(3) Multi-breed rescue group that serves unwanted American Eskimos and other dogs in need. Their group of volunteer foster homes spans the Northeast, and their adoption territory extends from Maine to eastern Pennsylvania, Delaware, and parts of northern Maryland.
Over the Christmas Holiday, Denise, and her organization, were involved with the dramatic rescue of Zoey Jean, a dachshund Chihuahua mix, abandoned and left for dead inside an abandoned building in Brooklyn, New York. Bruce was alerted to Zoey’s plight, and launched a nationwide rescue mission to save her. It was a dramatic, roller coaster rescue, with twists and turns almost impossible to believe. T he search and rescue was followed by almost 80,000 people around the world.
Initially, Zoey was near death, and many people did not think she would survive. After an exhaustive search and rescue mission, Zoey Jean made her way to Eskies Online in Connecticut, where Denise and her team nursed her back to health. Eventually, Zoey Jean was well enough for Bruce and Tami to adopt, and the story has a happy ending.
On this week’s show, Denise shares the dramatic details of the search and rescue. During her visit with Bruce & Hobbes, Denise discusses:

That was fun!
Really enjoyed listening to your show. Informative and relaxed, but not overly "cute." Thank you. I was aware of Sniff & Barkens, so I was happy to hear the interview with their Creative Director, Ms. Trasoff.
