Wilma Melville is a retired PE Teacher. When she retired, she decided to reinvent herself with a 2nd career. She learned how to train rescue dogs. When she was called to help with the bombing in Oklahoma, she discovered that there was a shortage of rescue dogs.
She said, “I can do something about this.” So she started adopting abandoned shelter dogs and training them to have a second career as rescue dogs. In her 80’s now, she has trained over 100 dogs that were abandoned by their owners to be rescue dogs. Just imagine how many lives she has changed by giving these dogs a second chance and training them to search and rescue.
I love what she says, “there is no end to what a dog can teach you.”
