Team Roughneck Rescue

Danny Davis, President

Danny was born and raised in the Ypsilanti/Belleville area. He started out volunteering at the local Humane Society where he would spend every day making certain that every dog was walked. It didn’t matter if a dog was aggressive or extremely shy, Danny would work with all of them. It wasn’t long until his reputation spread of his dedication and compassion for every dog.  He encountered just about every issue you can think of while volunteering at the humane society. But his true lessons on being a dog behaviorist came from living with a pack of dogs. Danny says "It's a must to be a calm assertive pack leader 24/7 to actually live amongst a pack of dogs." Danny’s pack varies between 8-12 dogs ranging from Rottweilers and German Shepherds to Pit Bulls and other strong breeds. This pack of unwanted and misfit dogs work together to rehabilitate unbalanced dogs and can achieve this balance much faster than any human can. Danny’s life is dedicated to rehabilitating and saving dogs. He knows this is the path he was born to follow.



Dawn Reeves, Vice President

"I have always had a love and passion for animals and enjoy being part of Roughneck Rescue and helping animals in need".



Jennifer Schaner, Secretary/Treasurer

Jennifer is a Real Estate agent by day and a dedicated Roughneck Rescue volunteer by night. Jennifer has always been an animal lover but has found her passion in helping anyway she can in the effort to rescue dogs, having a particular love for the Pit bull breed. Jennifer and her husband live with their rescue cat Buddy, rescue pit bull Thor and their foster Pittie Sasha. “There’s nothing more rewarding than helping to rescue a dog from a bad situation and helping to find them a loving forever home."

Kelly Collins, Program Director

Kelly has been an apprentice under Danny Davis since January 2011 learning to be a dog behaviorist. Her background has been in the corporate world of marketing and since trading her high heels for hiking boots, has dedicated her life to the rescue and rehabilitation of dogs. The time spent with a pack of dogs has taught her much about herself and, in particular, how to be calm and take time to appreciate the small things in life. Her passion for this rewarding endeavor, stated simply, is that “all dogs deserve to be safe and fulfilled. It is so rewarding to be able to help dogs, as well as families”.
