    His biggest fan and advocate, volunteer Sue Keehn Richter, had the bittersweet honor of walking Neil out of the shelter for the last time as he went to rescue with Partnership for Paws, Inc., a 501c3 non-profit based in Grand Island, Florida.

    After receiving some treats from his favorite spot, Dunkin Donuts, Neil went on his “freedom ride” to his new foster home to learn proper manners with Dare2Train.
