Throughout the majority of his young life, 13-year-old Ashley has been actively involved in the care of foster dogs alongside his family. For more than seven years, their home has served as a safe haven for numerous dogs in need. Additionally, their family includes three cherished rescue dogs, including Bertie, an aging 10-year-old Spaniel.
A few years back, Ashley’s curiosity led him to venture to a shelter with his mother, eager to witness the origins of these rescue dogs. However, upon setting foot in the facility and witnessing the daily struggles faced by homeless canines, Ashley was overcome with emotion and tears welled up in his eyes. Driven by a deep desire to make a difference, he conceived a truly unique approach to raise awareness and funds.
For well over a year now, Ashley has dedicated himself to sleeping in a tent outdoors, determined to generate funds for the organization Paws2Rescue. Enduring countless chilly nights (amounting to an impressive 654 nights throughout his ongoing campaign), there were moments when he contemplated giving up. However, in a heartwarming turn of events, Bertie, his faithful companion, joined him in his noble endeavor. Since then, the duo has formed an unbreakable bond, becoming an inseparable team on their mission to support and uplift deserving rescue dogs.
