    Devon Apodaca is the Executive Director at the Humane Society of Imperial County, trying to save one dog at a time in a rural California community along the US/Mexico border region. Being in an economically disadvantaged area along the Border Region has meant dealing with limited resources, overcoming language and cultural barriers, and managing the ever-increasing number of strays/medical emergencies of pets. Devon has been impacted by many dogs who have touched his life in profound ways enough for him to carry on regardless of the many obstacles, politics, and limitations he faces on a daily basis never losing hope of the end result.

Dog Save the People

I just can’t resist tuning into the heart-warming stories that dog owners experience and share with host, John Bartlett. I may shed a tear, feel my heart swell but always come away feeling uplifted and entertained; more in love with our furry friends. John’s love of dogs and his legacy of rescue, adoption and advocacy are mirrored in his guests and their incredible tales of being rescued themselves by their beloved companions. So nice to hear some goodness in the world.
