LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- In this month's "My Town Hero" segment, we're introduced to a Little Rock woman making a difference in her community by rescuing dogs so that they can live a better life.
Donna Easley is on a mission to save one dog at a time. She said, "I retired early, so now I get to do what I love."
Her passion? Helping rescue dogs like Pirate featured in the above video find loving homes. But in order to do that, they need to be prepped and ready to go.
"To be adopted from a rescue group, they have to be spayed, neutered and have all their vaccines."
Local shelters though, often times struggle to cover vet costs, so Donna decided to take action.
"I thought if I could help raise money and help rural shelters and rescues, that would help them move more dogs from the shelter and keep them off the euthanasia list," she said.
