A Texas man is dog’s best friend.

Greg Mahle reportedly drives thousands of miles per week just to save stray dogs, in a non-profit he dubbed Rescue Road Trips.

To date, he says he has saved more than 30,000 by driving from Ohio to Texas to New York.
"I make this trip every other week — 25 times a year," he told KVUE, noting that it adds up to over 3,800 miles a week.

"Well, she's going to New Jersey," said Betty Kroeger, with the animal control in the city of Lytle, Texas, while holding a terrier mix named Delaney. "She started out as a little street dog -– someone just found her."
According to Kroeger, Mahle has changed the way animal control operates in her small town, adding, “He has made a lot less dark days at our facility, because we no longer and have not for quite a while euthanized for space.”
Prospective dog owners apparently find the canines they want on, reach out to the Texas shelter to adopt them, and then arrange for Mahle – who charges a flat fee of $185 -- to pick them up and drive them north. He drives about 80 to 120 dogs on every trip.
