In Australia, one man’s goal in life is to save every rescue dog, and we believe he can do it.
Ryan Anderson is a full time animal welfare inspector for the RSPCA. And when he’s not saving animals in his 9-to-5 capacity, he is fostering dogs and volunteering with rescues to give every dog a second chance.
Oh, and he happens to be Australia’s most eligible bachelor, to boot.

“I started out just volunteering on weekends with various rescue groups, attending events, fostering dogs, transporting animals and donating, and now I also promote rescue dog events, fundraisers, adoptable animals through my social media as well as educational posts for promoting responsible dog ownership,” Anderson told The Dodo.
My kind of bouquet
As for pets, Ryan has a Rottie named Goose and a cat named Krumm. While he’d love to add to his pack, he keeps his home open to foster dogs instead.
“My favorite part would definitely be the moment one of your foster dogs finds his forever home. It’s sad to say goodbye, but it opens up a new spot for another foster to join the family.”

What’s in Ryan’s future? He hopes to create his own rescue organization someday to help harder to re-home dogs and provide treatment for behavior challenges.
#70 Alaskan Malamute You can see why the Inuits used them to chase Polar bears away. NITRO is a beast (I'm 6"2/80kg to put his size in perspective) Alaskan Malamutes were also used to hunt seals and as sled dogs and are regarded as high maintenance due to their double coat. #AlaskanMalamute #DogPokemon
