Svoju inspirativnu i velikodušnu priču Steve je podijelio u knjizi "Jedan jedini Wolfgang", prenosi Reader's Digest.
Kada je njegov pas Wolfgang uginuo, Steve je želio uraditi nešto dobro pa je otišao u azil i udomio jednog psa. Njegova zajednica ubrzo se proširila, a Steve je počeo objavljivati fotografije pokazujući kako izgleda njegova svakodnevnica sa životinjama.
"Ja sam posljednja osoba za koju biste očekivali da postigne uspjeh na društvenim mrežama. Sve je bilo spontano, reakcije su bile pozitivne. Nisam namještao fotografije, svaki dan je drugačije kada imate toliko ljubimaca. Ponekad dođem u dnevni boravak i vidim da kokoš sjedi na psu pa to fotografišem", rekao je.

I work with the Maxfund group in Denver to help them find homes for senior dogs in need. In the past we have found great homes for all the dogs that have been featured, even a few bonded pairs of dogs.. But this is the 1st time I've tried to help them find a home for 3 bonded dogs. Meet Zoe and Skittles and Penny. They are shih tzus aged 12, 12 and 14 and they have lived together most of their lives. Unfortunately, their owner had to go into assisted living and that left them without a home. They act like typical siblings; completely comfortable around each other, want to be together to snuggle, and then they grumble if one of them moves around too much. Zoey has a heart murmur but she's not on medication at this time so it must be low grade. Penny has been diagnosed with a brain tumor but it's not a hospice situation. She gets along great, the only telltale sign is a slight head tilt. Skittles seems to be just a completely healthy twelve-year-old dog. I know this particular adoption (or foster) will take a special person because they will be taking on 3 dogs at once. But they are 3 senior dogs and that makes things much easier than 3 younger dogs. If you're the type that likes the idea of a ready made family these 3 will fill your house with life and love AND you will be doing a wonderful thing allowing them to stay together. Word on the street is they love riding together in the doggy stroller. Each of them is playful and sweet and affectionate. I sat down on the couch to try to get them to settle down for the picture and 1 by 1 they came up and snuggled up against me and then promptly fell asleep. I could tell they are used to sharing their human. Maybe this holiday season a full house might be just the thing you need. Swipe right for a couple more pictures. Maxfund is open every day but Tuesday. 1005 Galapago, Denver, Colorado 303. 595. 4917 or email Kim at @[email protected] For the adults....did you hear about that new zoo that only has one animal? It's a shitzu. 😁 #maxfundseniorrescue
Njegova priča inspirisala je i druge ljude da počnu udomljavati starije pse, a njegova popularnost dovela je do toga da Steve napiše knjigu u kojoj govori o tome da treba vrednovati stare stvari, a ne samo tražiti nešto novo.
Životinje koje žive u Gregovoj maloj zajednici imaju dvije prostorije u kući u kojima borave dok je on na poslu.
"Ljudi se uglavom čude i ne mogu vjerovati koliko životinja imam u kući. Svi osim ćurke su u kući, ali ja sam zaista uredna osoba i sve imam pod kontrolom", kaže Steve koji priznaje da ne bi mogao funkcionisati bez pomoći spremačice.
