Meyer, the weiner on wheels, & I will be participating in the Animal Humane Society’s 36th annual Walk for Animals. With five Twin Cities locations, they care for nearly 35,000 unwanted, homeless, and neglected companion animals each year.

These animals rely on your support and anything you can give to help me reach my goal will make a big difference in their lives.


Please support us – and the animals – with a donation by selecting the “make a donation in my honor” button above the thermometer. Together, our efforts will help make a big difference!

Thank you!
