Unlike many dog lovers, Leslie Moniot isn’t looking for purebreds. She prefers mutts.
That’s because she’s interested in rescuing canines, and plenty of places exist for purebreds. Not so for mixed breeds.
Over the summer, she moved from a small town in southern California to Romeroville. Since 2001, she’s been providing homes for dogs.
She takes in large dogs from animal shelters, usually just before they are about to be put down.
