DENVER – Steve Greig, 50, has dedicated his life to adopting and taking in animals that nobody else wants.

According to ABC News, he currently has eight elderly dogs, two Calico cats, two ducks and a miniature pot-belly pig named Bikini that he takes care of on a farm outside Denver.

“It’s definitely very time consuming and a part-time job in itself,” he told ABC News. “But they’re my family. It’s a good feeling — knowing that these little guys are loved, cared for and together in a home they deserve.”

He said he started to adopt the animals after losing his dog 4 years ago.

“So I decided to go to the shelter and adopt the oldest, least likely to be adopted dog there.”

That’s where he found 12-year-old chihuahua Eyore.

“Whenever I came across a dog that didn’t look like it was going to find a home, I took it in.”

When Greig isn’t taking care of all his furry friends, he’s an accountant. He even makes sure to come home on his lunch break to check in.
