With his typical modesty, Greg Mahle calls himself “just a regular guy.” But the big-hearted Ohio native, like the company he has built, is anything but ordinary.
Mahle heads up Rescue Road Trips, a nonprofit he founded in 2005 dedicated to transporting dogs from pet shelters located in the southern U.S. to adoptive families spread across the northeast.
What Greg has built is more like a movement than a mere shuttle service. Primarily through social media, Mahle’s operation has rallied the support of dozens of ardent volunteers, who come out — no matter the weather — to stop-offs along his 4,200-mile route to help walk the dogs onboard the Rescue Road Trips truck. “They believe in what I’m doing,” he says of the dog-loving volunteers.
