Rest in peace Wayne! I volunteered along side Wayne with Rose's Rescue, an all breed pet rescue. Wayne fostered dogs for Rose's Rescue for several years until he moved from the area. He was a huge asset to the rescue, and a kind and caring man. He helped save and find homes for many of our furry friends. Thank you Wayne!
