September 1st, 2022

Today is September 1st, which means you can now submit your proposals for a Rachael Ray Save Them All grant. To mark the occasion, we are looking back at an episode that featured a program that received funding during a previous cycle.

Gateway Pet Guardians in East St. Louis developed the Unicorn Foster Squad program to address a common problem - a lack of foster homes for behaviorally challenging dogs.

This week, we hear from Brittany Fleming more about how this program came to be and how successful it has been in saving lives.
