Great Podcast

Being a co-founder of Goodlif3 Bully Rescue- I really enjoy this podcast. It’s nice to hear so many different perspectives. I truly believe that working together and supporting one another is key. At the end of the day we have to check egos at the door & realize we’re fighting the same fight ~ for the animals.
