Ellen has tirelessly worked in greyhound rescue since 1995. That's when she and her husband, Bill, adopted their first greyhound.
Ellen served as a long-time trustee of a greyhound rescue group and fostered countless greyhounds – nursing several to health after they suffered catastrophic racing injuries.
Over the last ten+ years, Ellen has worked as a crisis counselor and has been a greyhound therapy dog handler specializing in NJ state disaster/terrorism mental health response.
Since 2012, Ellen also took on rescue efforts of galgos and podencos in Spain and has competed over 30 New York and Madrid round trips to bring dogs to the States for placement in loving homes.
