In 2005, after Hurricane Katrina made landfall in the United States, heavy rains and strong winds caused unprecedented damage. One of the unfortunate outcomes was a surge in the number of homeless dog-people. Danny Robertshaw and Ron Danta, equestrian trainers by profession, decided to rescue as many canines as possible. After saving approximately 600 of our furry friends, the two men felt they had found their second calling and started a nonprofit called Danny & Ron’s Rescue.“Danny and Ron also make sure each dog is spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped before heading to their forever home.” But Danny & Ron’s Rescue does not stop there. The unique sanctuary promises every new arrival that they will never return to a shelter or be alone on the streets again. If no one adopts them, they are welcome to spend the rest of their days in the comfort of The Doghouse. Donations to the nonprofit have enabled its founders to expand the scope of their work. The number of dog-people they have helped is now around 14,000. Rescued dog-people who get adopted are not the only ones who benefit. Mr. Robertshaw and Mr. Danta have received countless thank-you letters from individuals who found a furry friend at The Doghouse. One such satisfied customer turned out to be film director Ron Davis who expressed an interest in making a documentary about the couple. They agreed that a movie could touch many hearts and increase public awareness about saving animal-people. Completed in 2018 and released by Netflix the following year, “Life in the Doghouse” has received fantastic reviews and won Best Documentary at the Tryon International Film Festival in North Carolina. Let’s take a peek! In addition to caring for their own family, Mr. Robertshaw and Mr. Danta assist financially challenged older adults who have animal companions. Apart from The Doghouse, Mr. Robertshaw and Mr. Danta bring even more goodness to the world. They are sometimes informed of neglected horses that are in danger of dying. They have rescued many of these and keep some on their farm.
