|Murmur leaving Bakersfield|
Streets of Bakersfield group
Murmur was spotted by then kennel manager at KCAC and posted on a group email. When I saw her photo, something clicked. Reunion Rescue was full at the time as we always are, but I started scrambling to see what I could do to save this one dog. Besides being an adult in a very high kill shelter with intake of over 500 dogs per week.
Streets of Bakersfield: Driving to save dogs
Murmur had a heart murmur. I started posting to try and find her a foster and my post was answered by Barbara, a woman from Oakland, California. What began that day was a small effort between two people which has resulted in a volunteer transport group responsible for saving over 4,000 dogs up and down the state of California. I met a few solid transport and rescue people who dedicate their lives to rescue and transport.
One of the dear members of Streets of Bakersfield left us this past Memorial Day, John McCauley. John helped found Streets of Bakersfield and was one of Murmur's transport legs the day she was driven to Barbara four years ago.

Barbara has created a Strut Your Mutt page for Murmur and Hub to represent Reunion Rescue this year
in San Francisco and to raise awareness for homeless pets everywhere.
Please take a minute to visit Murmur and Hub's page and contribute a dollar or two so that we can help that next homeless pet in some high kill shelter.
