Chances are Greg Mahle is not a name you'd recognize, but he's been too busy serving needy shelter dogs to find much time to talk about himself.
Mahle operates a service called Rescue Road Trips, and it has already made a huge difference in the lives of thousands of unwanted animals.
Every other week for the last decade, the Ohio native has been on the road, driving 4,200 miles roundtrip from his home in Zanesville all the way to Houston, Texas with one mission in mind: transport unwanted pets from Southern states to loving new homes in Northern ones.
Along the journey south, Mahle stops at animal shelters and collects dogs that had been destined for euthanasia, loading them by the dozen into his trailer.
"Some of them are scared," he tells the Zanesville Times Recorder. "They don't know what's happening. Some have come from really bad situations, but a little love and reassurance is just what they need."
