Instagram Hero: Colorado’s Steve Greig Loves His Animals

Steve 2_optAnyone that has an Instagram account, and loves animals, has heard of Steve Greig. This Colorado accountant has dedicated his life to taking care of senior dogs (plus a few other critters that deserve some attention too!).

Steve currently has TEN dogs (!), one pig, two ducks, two chickens, two pigeons, and a few cats that are on guard duty in his garage looking for mice. He also has a rabbit and a pond full of koi. Steve’s love for animals became even more apparent after the death of his beloved Wolfgang. He starts his morning at 5 AM, giving all of his animals their breakfast. Each animal has a specific dietary need and Steve makes sure that each animal is well taken care of. He goes to work as an accountant, then comes home during his lunch break to let his animals out. His weekends are filled with grooming and, if any of his senior dogs need a check-up, he takes them for a vet visit.

All of the attention he has gotten on social media is a wonderful thing for bringing attention to senior dogs that get left in shelters, because no one wants to take on the task of taking care of an elderly dog. That has not stopped Steve from adopting more animals. He looks for the oldest dog that has problems and brings them home.  These senior dogs are well taken care of and they have lots of love.

All of the attention he has gotten on social media is a wonderful thing for bringing attention to senior dogs that get left in shelters…very few people want to take on the task of taking care of an elderly dog. That has not stopped Steve from adopting more animals. He looks for the oldest dog, even one that has health problems, and brings them home. These senior dogs are well taken care of and they are shown lots of love.

Now, he has dogs, but he also has a pig named Bikini that thinks she is a dog! Yes, you read that right. This amazing man has helped bring awareness to a shelter situation that is very common. He also supports many other causes, including Yulin Festival awareness

If you get the opportunity to go on Instagram, you will love Steve’s Instagram account: He can be found at Wolfgang2242.  You will absolutely love Steve’s world and the best part about all of his photos? Senior dogs and other animals living in a world filled with love and compassion.  We thank you Steve….and Bikini too!
