My Story…

Abby and I are running for Nico! Read below for more about his story and help us raise $1000 to help Left Behind K-9 Rescue provide more awesome pets like Nico find forever homes. In the summer of 2015, Nico, then named Cecil, was being tortured by a panhandler to in Seattle to squeeze money out of concerned passerby. A brave soul took it upon themselves to get Nico away from danger and get him to safety. They contacted LBK9, and as LBK9 does, they took him in and found him a safe and loving foster home. Nico's story amazed me. I was already about to start life with a new career in a new place, so a new cat fit right in. Adopting Nico has been one of the best decisions I've ever made and I am forever thankful to LBK9 for helping take him from having his legs bound by fishing line into my home where he can bite Abby's ankles, burrow in my sweatshirts, drink from the sink, and do all the strange but adorable other things he loves doing. Wish us luck and thanks for your support!


I'm participating in LBK9's 5th Annual Tails 'n Trails 5K! Give on this page to support my run and help LBK9 continue their lifesaving dog rescue programs through the pandemic and beyond. No gift is too small and I appreciate your support! You can learn more about LBK9 at
