A doggone good deed - SSCI Environmental
Takota was a sad dog. A former race dog, the greyhound now lived in a small yard, and his owner, Les Tibbals, couldn’t find a fenced-in area big enough for him to really run.
Then Helen Hodges, president and CEO of SSCI, offered use of the fence-lined land around a one-acre detention pond that the company maintains in Webster, Texas. In exchange, Les is cleaning up trash on the site and has offered to mow.
Now the detention pond isn’t just protecting against flooding and downstream erosion. It’s become a new track for Takota to race around.
After getting used to the space, Takota took off running laps around the pond and now looks forward to his regular trips to the field. “Thanks for allowing my buddy Takota a fenced place to run, and me to walk,” Les wrote to Helen.
