Sunny Paws Rescue is a 2022 Athletes for Animals Grant Recipient. David and Kelly Backes, founders of Athletes for Animals, have a passion for supporting a variety of animal welfare initiatives and philanthropic endeavors. Over the years, they have devoted their time to dozens of animal shelters and rescues, visited some of the nation's most dire puppy mills, and helped find homes for a few special dogs from Sochi, Russia during the 2014 Olympic Games. Following years of volunteering at the local humane society in college, their dedication to animals was amplified when they first fostered and later adopted Rodney, a severely abused and neglected dog from Stray Rescue of St. Louis. The couple helped rehabilitate him and say he is their inspiration for the start of their efforts. Now, after 15 years in the professional sports world, they know the importance of awareness and education when it comes to helping out those in need.
