Around 2012, Thayne Hamilton was coaxed by family and friends to enter a contest on Seattle based Talk It Up TV. The winner would be chosen by votes and they would get a $1000 prize. The TV station immediately knew that Thayne would be the winner when they read his story.
Thayne and his wife Christine shared a love for dogs. Over the past decade, they have taken in at least 20 rescue dogs at their home in Orcas Island, Washington. They were very passionate about it. Their home became a rescue center called Grey Muzzle Rescue. And the dogs that came here were family.
But disaster struck when Christine got a terminal cancer diagnosis. Christine found it more important to save the house and the dogs than to pay for her treatments. Thayne honored her request and kept on caring for the dogs out of his single income.
Grey Muzzle started when Thayne and Christine married and moved onto their large property ten years ago. Christine had three dogs, and then two more older dogs joined them, and a dog named Fluffy changed their lives forever and they decided to start Grey Muzzle.
Now Thayne is feeding nine pretty large dogs, all with his own money. One is named Lily and she can’t walk very well after being tied up for 14 years, so she rides in a wheelbarrow as Thayne pushes her. Unbelievable. This must be the most generous man on earth. But this TV station didn’t stop with the $1000 in prize money. Wait until you see what they did for him.
