Two of our ARNO volunteers, Michael Groetsch and Dan Rivers, have co-written and produced the song “Who Rescued Who” (Americana/Folk) about an elderly man who walks into an animal shelter looking to adopt a puppy but after an old and gray dog catches his eye, he adopts the older dog instead. When friends visit his home and comment that he rescued the dog, he softly replies that the dog actually rescued him. He also realizes that the dog walks and shares with him each day, the beauty in a world that he had almost forgotten. LISTEN AND WATCH HERE:

Michael Groetsch runs the website I Can Still Hear the Music, devoted to animal rescue themes alongside baby boomers and caregiving.
