Remembering a Rescuer

On the Shelter Run in 2007 with Dee (far right) and the rest of the Rogers crew.
Last night I heard the sad news that Dee Seiffert had passed away. Dee was one of the amazing canine rescuers I had the privilege of travelling on a shelter run with while filming the Rogers Rescues documentary in 2007.  I didn't know her well, but I remember her friendliness, kindness, compassion and commitment to rescuing animals. I feel lucky to have known her even a little, and the trip I shared with her and her colleagues is still one of my best filmmaking memories. Although she was a little camera shy and preferred not to be interviewed, she appears throughout the film doing what she loved. Rest in peace, Dee.
