Chris Chidichimo, an ex-con turned dog rescuer, decided to turn his life around after a decade of bad choices. He began volunteering at the local dog shelter in his hometown and the rest is history.

He started at TMTRD as a volunteer in 2018. After volunteering for 4 months, he flew back to New Jersey to get his dog, Gracie, and soon returned.

Today he acts as Michaels right hand, doing everything from running the sponsorship and volunteer program, feeding the street dogs, going on rescues, picking up poo, and much much more.
