MAHOMET -- Barking dogs didn't stop one Kid to Know from helping dozens find forever homes. It all started when Tyler LaRoe asked for donations to the Humane Society instead of getting birthday presents. It sparked a love of dogs which wouldn't stop.

Tyler and his mom started helping with a rescue group. They pick up dogs being transported from Tennessee and keep them overnight.

Tyler spends that time playing with the dogs and making sure they're happy. The next morning, they drive them to the next stop. He's helped rescue 30 dogs so far.

Tyler's family adopted one rescue dog. They wish more people would think about adoption. In fact, Petie, the white dog is available. For more information, click here or email Ginna Moore at
