National Volunteer Week: a Safran engineer opens his house to save dogs

During this year’s National Volunteer Week, Saffron put on the spotlight Steve Marglan engineer with a passion for dogs.

Margl is chief engineer at Safran test cells, world leader in the engineering of test benches for all types of aeronautical engines: civil turbojets and military turbojets; power units for helicopters and regional aircraft; as well as auxiliary power units.

As a dog lover, Margl is an active volunteer with Warrior Dog Rescue – an organization whose mission is to rescue dogs that are homeless, abandoned in shelters, abandoned by their owners, those who are abused and neglected, as well than those who are left wandering. It is a volunteer-based host family organization that relies on fundraising and donations to operate. Nearly 3,000 dogs have been rescued to date through this organization.

Asked about the difficulties faced by Warrior Dog Rescue, Margl said: “With that comes great challenges such as veterinary care.” He pointed to a recent example involving 15 puppies infected with a potentially deadly virus. After being rescued from the wild, they received great care with the support of Warrior Dog Rescue.

Margl has been with Warrior Dog Rescue since its inception five years ago, and he previously served with another rescue organization. “There is a huge need to help dogs and it never seems to end.” This organization rescues dogs from wild and abusive situations, and sanctuary kills and provides the care they need to recover and find them great “forever” homes.

Margl – who has been with New Brighton, Minnesota-based Safran test cells for six years – shares his passion by encouraging his colleagues to also become volunteers.

Reflecting on his experience, he concluded: “Warrior Dog Rescue is a great group of volunteers who give their time and their homes to look after these dogs until the new home can be found. While there are challenges, there are also rewards, like lots of puppy kisses for everyone! »
