Thayne Hamilton was persuaded by family and friends to enter a contest on ‘Talk It Up’, a Seattle based TV program. The winner would be decided by viewers votes, and awarded a $1000 prize.
When the TV station heard Thayne’s story, they knew he would be the winner.
Thayne and his wife Christine shared a passion for dogs. In the last 10 years, they have rescued over 20 dogs and welcomed them into their home in Orcas Island, WA. Their home would eventually become a rescue center called Grey Muzzle Rescue, and the dogs that cared for were family.
Disaster struck when Christine received a terminal diagnosis. When medical bills started piling up, Christine’s concern was that they would lose their home and rescue dogs, so they made a decision most people wouldn’t, they refused any further medical treatments.
