    All rescue sled dog team!


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Stonehouse is a photographer in Bayfield, Wisconsin, who documents animal rescues. She learned about Racey's Rescues while in the course of following another sled dog team. "We see so many bad stories about dog sledding, but this group, and the people I interact with in the mushing world are nothing but dog fans, rescuers, and advocates. Some dogs love to be outside and working, and [owners] Jim and Sally have centered their lives around these rescues to make sure they have a safe and happy home doing what they love."
    - dsashin, CNN iReport producer

    There is an amazing team of all rescue sled dogs named Racey's Rescues living the high life near Bayfield, WI. Their humans (including a once non - dog person) have taken dogs from both shelters and other race teams and given them a fabulous home. One of the dogs loves to talk and tell them to get going! (They are getting ready to race in this video clip - this is NOT a chain that they live on.)
    Part of the funds for supporting the team come from Racey's Tasty Biscuits (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Raceys-Tasty-Dog-Bisquits/126631120849629)- dog treats sold locally that will eventually be available via Etsy and other online retailers.
