Scott become involved in pug rescue thanks to his wife and fellow Pug Squad Co-Founder, Jodi. After adding a senior pug to their growing grumble, Jodi began volunteering for Curly Tail Pug Rescue. Her volunteer work spilled over onto Scott, who quickly became a “rescue husband.” Over time, he would assist in fostering and representing the rescue at events, such as the Milwaukee Pug Fest, assorted fund raisers, and various New York City meet-ups. All the while, he was making connections and forming friendships with the people who would eventually form Pug Squad. As a Co-Founder and Board President, Scott is looking forward to bringing his years of experience to provide guidance, leadership and strategic direction to Pug Squad.
Scott and Jodi have had nine pugs of their own, mostly rescues, with their current grumble holding steady at a healthy six: Alexis, Max, Anthony, Cosmo!, Dexter Riley, and, of course, Owen (Scott’s BFF and honorary “Also Prez” of the Squad). When he isn’t helping pugs, Scott is a grandfather of two, a Weight Watchers Leader, an actor, a writer, and devoted Star Trek fan.
