Mail carrier honored for rescuing dumped dogs along her rural mail route

WAYNE, Okla. – Most mail carriers may run away from barking dogs – but one woman in Wayne runs toward them.

It all started two years ago with a puppy dumped out on country roads.

Tammey Little scooped him up, took him home, named him Ben, and then realized that she had a new calling.

Tammey decided to turn her horse barn into a dog rescue called Goin’ to the Dogs, and says she has since adopted out about 300 dogs that she has either found on her route, or that she has rescued from euthanasia at shelters.

She spends all of her own money feeding them, and also has the dogs spayed or neutered.

All she asks in return is a $75 adoption fee to help offset the cost of the dog’s surgery.
