Hello, my name is Melissa Henchen I am the President of Going To The Dogs Rescue (501c3) organization that helps the homeless including pitbulls. I own 3 pits of my own (ages 5, 4, and 3) and have been fostering pits for about 2 years.
We have been highly active in the fight against Pound Seizure in Montcalm County MI and started our career in rescue there...the rest is history!

We are currently seeking out grants and opportunities to purchase a shelter this year for our rescue and have plans on including an educational program for children too.

No catching up with the Jenn's I can't keep them straight now ... too many Melissa's my brain would explode.

Hey Melissa, don't mind me...welcome. I love quality rescue.
