How a Former Mob Enforcer Found His Humanity.


If a man is a drug addict, an alcoholic, a convict, and a mobster, is his life beyond redemption? Don’t tell that to James Guiliani. A small abused dog melted his hardened heart and began a new life rescuing animals throughout New York City. He’s taken his street skills and rescued dogs from dog fighting, he’s saved abused and neglected dogs and cats, and waded through the floodwaters of Hurricane Sandy to save cats. Now he is the founder of Keno’s Animal Rescue in Brooklyn. His book is his the name he is known in the streets, “Dogfella: How an Abandoned Dog Named Bruno Turned This Mobster’s Life Around”. You’ll enjoy this conversation. It contains tears and laughter. You’ll learn about life inside the mob and the incredible stories of one man changing his life and the lives of abused animals in America’s largest city.

The Tim Danahey Show started in July, 2010 at internet station Castle Rock Radio. It started as a one-day-per week endeavor and quickly grew to five days per week. The show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective.
