Zach Skow has made a huge impact on the world and continues to do so through his own charitable organizations Marley's Mutts and Pawsitive Change that work with pet rescue and prison inmate rehabilitation.
Although you would never guess it when you meet him, Zach is no stranger to hardship himself.
Many yers ago, Zach found himself on the brink of death as he faced a terminal diagnosis of liver failure due to drug and alcohol addiction. He shares his story openly to inspire others as he says his father and his dogs helped him rehabilitate himself back to sobriety, health and ultimately a life of service.
When Operation Stoke first met Zach and learned of the extent to which he worked so tirelessly to advocate for both animals and humans that most people cast aside as unredeemable, we immediately wanted to help support the man who supports so many others.
