Zach Skow was 28 years old and dying of end-stage liver disease due to a crippling alcohol addiction. In order to receive a transplant, he would need to accrue 6 months of sobriety. He found the kinship, strength and unconditional love needed to accomplish this task in his dogs. A decade later, he’s sober, married with a child and is the founder of Marley’s Mutts, a dog rescue organization that heals and rehabilitates shelter dogs. The rescued dogs are then used in a variety of therapeutic programs that benefit both people and the animals. To date, Marley’s Mutts has placed over 5000 dogs. Hear his story. #youlive
