Board Member/Event Committee/Bulldog's Helping K-9's Chair
Darlene Parker Taylor found GEBR when she attended her first Bully Ball in 2010. When she met the team, she knew she’d found her place with a group that shared the same lifelong passion and love of English Bulldogs. Darlene started regularly attending GEBR events, but eventually found her true passion was transporting dogs from shelters to GEBR. She looks back on Orson, her first transfer. It was snowing, so Orson ended up staying with Darlene overnight. It was the first time in a long time, if ever, that Orson had been shown the love he so deserved. And as all happy endings go, Orson ended up thriving, and living an amazing life, while Darlene continued to volunteer with the rescue. Since, Darlene has done plenty of transports, and she still cries every time. She absolutely loves animals with all her heart. In 2015, Darlene started “Bulldogs Helping K9s,” an organization that assists humane societies and rescue groups with daily needs such as blankets and food, while she spreads awareness of GEBR’s mission throughout the state.
