A love of animals is what put Roxanne in touch with the non-profit Silver Muzzle Cottage. Proud to be a board member for the organization which helps rescue homeless senior dogs and also provides hospice care for senior dogs needing medical care during their final days, weeks or months. Roxanne is also proud of her weekly segment 'Adoption Options', which helps find homes for dogs and cats across northern Michigan.
Roxanne has two amazing dogs of her own. Karma, The Newshound, was adopted seven years ago from a shelter in Mecosta County. Karma has made numerous television appearances and even has her own Facebook fan page. Karma's little sister, Figgy, was adopted three years ago and continues to cause a lot of excitement around the house!
