Tired Dog Rescue, a nonprofit organization on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, offers foster homes and opportunities for adoption for animals that likely wouldn’t make it in a shelter. The group focuses on cocker spaniels and miniature Schnauzers but will take in other smaller breeds or special cases that need TLC. The dogs often are older and might be deaf, blind or heartworm positive. Sometimes they have been abused, sometimes they were abandoned. Some just linger too long at a shelter, looked over in favor of younger, more “perfect” models.

Eash is a singer, musician and all-around entertainer who regularly performs on the Coast.
