A message from Chris and Chelsey (Chewy's Rescue Ride Founders):

Chewy (Chewbacca) was born December 23, 2015. He, along with his seven litter-mates and their mom, were abandoned on Christmas Day 2016 when the pups were just two days old. A local rescue took them in, and they were then transferred to a foster home. Chewy stood out from the rest. He was the chubby pup of the litter, always going back to his mom for a second helping of dinner. 

On February 20, 2016, Chewy was adopted by Chelsey and arrived at his forever home.  A few months later, Chewy was introduced to Chris. It took him a pound of beef jerky, but Chris eventually won Chewy over and the two have been best friends ever since. Chris never thought he could love an animal as much as he loves Chewy; but Chewy has him wrapped around his paw. Because of the unconditional love Chewy gives us, we wanted to give back to local shelters to help other animals, like Chewy find their forever homes.

We decided to combine our passion for animals with our love of motorcycle riding and thus, "Chewy's Rescue Ride" was born.
