CLEVELAND – His professional career has been all about Cleveland weather for over 50 years.

But in his heart, Dick Goddard is about “the four foots” – the animals that Dick has advocated for all of his life.

And as he leaves his television duties, Dick is announcing the formation of the Dick Goddard Foundation, a non-profit organization that will help fund rehabilitation for animal cruelty cases, aid local rescue groups, help fund clinics for low-cost spay and neuter programs and give financial help to veterinarians who treat good Samaritan cases.

So while we won’t see him on television, Dick will still be working to help animals everywhere.

Listen above as Dick tells us in his own words about his new venture!
