MC Johnson

Member

M.C. became a volunteer shortly after she and her husband adopted a bonded pair, Raven and Shadow, from Lab Rescue in 2013. First transporting, then fostering, then adding in some intake and home visits, she finally become an adoption coordinator. In 2016, she assumed responsibility for the OGB line. She loves her seniors, and has failed twice out of the seventy plus fosters they have hosted, first adopting Sugar Baby/Bonnie, and after she crossed, falling for bonded pair Bear and Farley. Currently, they have five senior dogs, plus the (in)famous Ramsey, four cats, nine horses (most of whom are “past senior”) and four donkeys. She and her husband retired early because work was interfering with Lab Rescue. Their self-professed legacy to date is a humane society in rural Colorado which they co-founded in the early 80’s and is still going strong.
