When Sara Melnicoff’s 13-year- old dog, Carli – who’s arthritic and senile – was unexpectedly swept into the waters of Mill Creek, she was doing all she could to just tread water.

Just as Sara was about “to take [her] shoes off and go in the water to try to get [Carli],” a complete stranger sprang into action to help save Carli.

It seemed as if this man’s actions came just when they were needed as Sara wrote that Carli was “shaking like a leaf and didn’t have much energy left.”

Incredibly grateful to this man’s saving of her furry companion; Sara wanted to give back to him just a portion of what he gave to her and Carli.

I was very shaken and teary when he brought Carli to me; asked him his name and gave him a huge hug. I asked him what his favorite charity was so I could donate in his name and he told me he runs a non-profit!

Bobby L’Heureux, the man who saved Carli, runs Big Heart, Big Hands; a non-profit that raises money for mountain rescue organizations.

He supports the awareness and implementation of mountain safety education; and assists with funding for those who have been rescued and their families.
