Little League Rescue changes the fate of animals on high-kill shelters' euthanasia lists. The volunteer-run rescue lifts the animals out of the shelter system, placing them instead in loving, temporary foster homes. Many of these animals are ill, injured, or suffering from malnourishment, so the organization attains the necessary medical care to return them to health. Every animal is spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped, and loving foster parents, as well as trainers, help them overcome psychological issues and again be healthy, happy pets ready for their permanent homes.

She treats allergies and chronic pain with hair-thin acupuncture needles or cupping treatments, which entail suctioning cups onto the skin to move areas of stagnant blood. She also helps her clients improve their wellness with a custom blend of herbs in granular form, as a pill, or disguised as a Twinkie.
