Danny Spanks, a radio disc jockey, has a passion for rescuing dogs in his free time. One of his most challenging cases was Mama, a dog who was initially terrified of humans and took months to build trust with. Through patience, persistence, and love, Danny was able to rescue Mama and help her thrive in her new life.


Mama was first spotted in an orchard, where she would run away from anyone who approached her. Danny knew that gaining her trust would be a difficult task, but he was determined to help her. He began visiting Mama every day, driving hours to spend time with her, and slowly building a connection.

Initially, Mama would only accept food from a distance, but over time, she began to meet Danny halfway and eventually took food directly from his hand. This was a significant milestone in their relationship, showing that Mama was beginning to trust him.


Danny has been rescuing dogs for over five years and finds the process of helping animals incredibly rewarding. He believes that no dog deserves to be alone and hungry on the streets and is committed to showing them that humans can be kind.

Rescuing Mama was a long and challenging process, but Danny’s patience and dedication paid off. After months of building trust, he captured Mama and brought her to her home safely. The first time he was able to pet her was an emotional moment for both of them, as it symbolized the deep bond they had formed.


Since her rescue, Mama has thrived in her new environment. She loves to play, receive attention, and do “zoomies.” The only remaining obstacle for Mama is overcoming her fear of going inside the house, something she likely has never experienced before. Danny is confident that they will achieve this goal soon as they continue to work together.

Danny Spanks’ commitment to rescuing dogs like Mama has made a significant difference in their lives, and his efforts continue to inspire others. Thank you, Danny, for being an ‘Earth Angel.’ Here’s to Mama’s new life and her heroic dad!
