A man sacrifices everything to go across 48 states and save as many pets as possible.


This dude clearly adores dogs. He left his job and all of his belongings behind to travel across the country to raise awareness about dog adoption and show people that shelter animals make fantastic pets.

Lee Asher has spent a lot of time at the local shelter since he was a child. As he grew older, he began to rescue animals from the shelter and place them in permanent homes. As a result, it should come as no surprise that Asher maintained his activism as an adult by fostering animals and adopting his own “crew.”


“I always knew that I’d have a house full of rescues when I got older,” Asher told The Dodo. “Seeing where I am now isn’t much of a surprise to me or anyone who knew me growing up.”

Asher now has a new and more ambitious mission: to save all animals from shelters.

Asher recognizes a negative perception about shelter animals. He believes it is critical to increasing awareness that the animals there make excellent pets. It’s a difficult undertaking, but he’s up to the task.



“The inspiration comes from a love of dogs and the knowledge that by rescuing a dog, you are saving a life and making room for other rescues to be adopted.” “It’s a win-win situation and a wonderful feeling,” Asher remarked.

Asher and his closest friend have embarked on an expedition to save dogs after purchasing an RV and quitting their jobs, and they are accompanied by the six adopted canines Asher saved.

His goal is to tour all 48 states, visit animal shelters, and save as many animals as possible.


In the film, Asher states, “We want to show people that the dogs in shelters are the most beautiful, loving, magnificent creatures you can imagine.”

The two friends and their pets had traveled to 31 states and rescued over 90 dogs as of three months ago, an extraordinary effort. However, the duo is far from finished.

Asher stated, “I’m not even close to being finished.” “The eventual goal is to clear the shelters,” says the narrator.
