My heartfelt thoughts & prayers go out to Mary & her family, and Mike's family.
May God bring comfort to all. So deeply sorry, and such a great loss to the rescue community, and animals in need.

My sincere sympathy to Mikes family and friends. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
I am so thankful and grateful for Mike and I Am Dog Rescue for helping so many precious fur babies have a chance at a wonderful life. A special thanks to him for allowing me to be a foster to a wonderful German Shepherd that was a stray/not chipped and at the shelter. Mike was amazing with Ranger when he first met him to give him his shots, chip, and clip his nails. It was as Mike had always...

Mike was a kind man who loved animals. He waived my adoption fee for my sweet Ella. Shes an older pup and has brought me much joy. Im very sorry to hear of his passing. Im sure he had plenty of greeters over that Rainbow Bridge.

My wife and I saw Mike many times at IADR adoption events at our neighborhood Hollywood Feed in Little Elm. As the owners of six rescue dogs ourselves, we immediately bonded with Mike and understood and appreciated his passion for the animals. The world needs more people of Mike's compassion and kindness, and we will all be the poorer for his passing. Rest in peace, Mike, and may you spend eternity in the company of former rescue dogs.

I first met Mike in Jackson, Mississippi when we were both in the "oil patch." What a demeanor he had - wish I could have that. Wonderful to be around, delightful conversation, and a smile on his face all the time. I was so happy to see him come to EPA here in Dallas, having known Mike in Jackson. Amazingly, he recognized me as well. I welcomed him to the "BIG D" and EPA. Although we worked in different Divisions, when we ran into each other, we'd reminisce about the...

He was truly selfless, spending countless hours giving futures to man's best friend and sharing himself just as avidly with everyone he met. I looked up to him for those qualities. He was a best friend and I will miss him dearly. Mary I'm so sorry for you and your family's loss.

Mary Ann and family, I am so sorry for your loss. Mike's love for dogs was impressive! He demonstrated such a genuine love and desire to place all dogs, big and small, cute and less cute, healthy and those in need of TLC. I feel like he probably lived his entire life this way. He will be missed by many. May he have a glorious life in heaven, running with all the dogs he has helped in the past!!! I pray for you to find comfort during this difficult time.
