Poppa Bo Hannon - Co-Founder
Legend has it that Poppa Bo Hannon is himself a ninja and is rumored to be the secret leader of the Black Dog Ninja troop.
Over the past 10 years Bo has rescued, cared for and adopted out more than 3,000 dogs. With nothing more than a dream and a passion for helping the helpless, he took a leap of faith, quit his mechanical career and fully dedicated his life to rescuing and rehabilitating dogs in need. Over the years Bo has boarded, worked with and rehabilitated dogs with everything from simple temperament issues all the way up to dogs more with far more complicated physical and emotional special needs.
Peace and Paws Dog Rescue launched after Bo and Melissa adopted a dog of her their own from an Alabama shelter. Wanting to do more for the abandoned and unwanted southern dogs they saw during their own adoptions process, they founded Peace & Paws Dog Rescue. In addition to rescuing thousands of needy animals, Peace & Paws has built a rescue network that connects rescuers, dogs in need and adopters from Maine to Florida. As a pioneer in the online rescue world Bo, Melissa and PPDR have amassed more than a half million followers on FaceBook, where Melissa and her colleagues keep friends from all around the world updated and educated by highlighting the stories and journey's of her rescue dogs.
Bo currently resides in New Hampshire with Melissa, 5 dogs, 2 foster Chihuahuas, Kirtan the cat and a turtle named Courtney.
