Mercy Hansen Mize has taught elementary school for 16 years and has been an animal lover her entire life. In April 2015, Mercy and her husband Brian adopted Samson from the DAWGS Prison Program and there began her passion for dog adoption and training. Since then she and her husband support this amazing nonprofit organization which helps dogs, inmates, and forever families. Samson’s Tail was inspired by this program and Mercy’s desire to educate and promote its worthy cause. Therefore a portion of the proceeds from the sales of Samson’s Tail will go to support the DAWGS Prison Program.
