Mel has been “re-homed” in Teasdale, UT now going on five years and prior, spent five years of long vacations touring and getting to know this magical place from it’s most grand landscapes to it’s simplest, fascinating details. Growing up in Maryland on the Chesapeake Bay, he focused his studies on Native American archaeology, art, and natural history. Though he spent his life on the water and his recreation involved boats more than anything else, he found his heart in the high desert and mountains of our region. Always an animal lover, and active adopter and advocate, he has found his calling volunteering with CCAW. His broad and diverse management experience has found a place where it can benefit so many animals’ lives and bring the happiness of a life-partner companion animal to their humans.
